Former Miss Oregon USA and CEO of EAG Sports Management
The Club gave Denise a safe place to grow, learn, and get some TLC when she needed it most. After leaving foster care, a friend introduced Denise to the Escondido Girls Club, later the Boys & Girls Clubs of Escondido. After the trauma of custody trials and bouncing from foster-home to foster-home, the Club was just what the 6-year-old needed. Club staff took extra time with Denise, helping her emerge from the tough space she was in. For her grandmother, the Club was a vital support system. After graduating from college, Denise’s love of sports led her to create EAG Sports Management providing athletes with career management. Over the past 23 years, Denise has built EAG into a major player in the sports industry.
