Welcome to My Personal Page
I am running this race in memory of my beautiful and amazing friend, Dena Kritikos. Dena and I met in 2007 when she trained me at a new job. We only worked together a few months before she left the job for another company, but I immediately recognized her as someone special. A few years later, we worked together again, first as colleagues and eventually she became my boss. It is rare to be able to say that you look forward to going to work because of your boss, but that is how I felt about Dena. Even during the most challenging days at work, Dena always had an open door, a kind word, and a solution. Dena believed in me when I didn't believe in my self and had confidence in me when I had none. Her personality was larger than life and her laughter was contagious. Dena passed away at age 38, leaving behind a beautiful family with two small children and a huge hole in the hearts of all that knew her. Everyone should be so lucky to have someone like Dena in their life. I know that I am forever blessed that she was in mine.
