Denys​ started working in clinical research as a Research Assistant at the University of Washington where she also earned her MPH with an emphasis on nutrition. While her focus had previously been on kids and obesity prevention, due to losing a parent to Multiple Myeloma she switched her focus to oncology and feels privileged to go to work every day to fight the good fight.
