Denisa graduated from the University of Vermont in 2000, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. Shortly after graduation, she moved to New York City to take on a marketing role for News Corp/Fox, but when her family sold her Southern Vermont childhood home in 2004, she decided to follow them to California to pursue an interest in the music industry. A few months after arrival, Denisa began working for a small record/artist management label in Encinitas, CA. She took on the role of a paralegal/A&R rep/ and intern manager. Living in the heart of Encinitas, she also found herself diving deeper into her passion for yoga. 

     A few years in, Denisa left the label to collaborate with a former NY friend in a music management role.  The two woman team co-managed 4 bands located in various parts of the US.  In 2009,  Denisa got involved with charity organizations and began working large scale events handling celebrity logistics and backstage management. She followed this music passion further by continuing her education and in May 2011 completed her certifications in Recording Arts, Sound Reinforcement, Digital Audio, and Performance Technician. She also coincidentally dove further into her yoga studies and currently holds a 500-hour RYT certification in both Yoga and Pilates, with specialties in rehabilitation, stand up paddle board formats and pre- & postnatal practices.

In August 2016, after becoming more and more interested in spending weekends at Open Houses, Denisa got her Real Estate license, with a little nudge of her mom, Maria Petricko who has been a realtor in Temecula/Inland Empire for well over a decade and half.  

    Since finding the desire to heal people on an mental and physical level thru yoga and Pilates came so naturally, Denisa is now passionate about wanting to achieve the same level of integrity with finding her clients the happiness in the purchase or sale of their home. She is a go-getter that will nurture your home buying/selling journey, and make the process as peaceful as she would your yoga practice, but with the heart as if it was her own home. In addition, she is also a RESA Certified Staging Advocate and a Compass Certified Real Estate Professional.

    Denisa can occasionally be found teaching group and private Yoga & Pilates classes around town, and is still involved in the music scene, occasionally hitting the road as a audio tech or tour/stage manager for Jeff Bridges and The Abiders or handling sales for Jimmy Messina, or managing various aspects of a number of music festivals around the country.  Denisa has never been a person to say no to a challenge and is always willing to get her hands dirty.   Let her guide your journey!
