Denise Cagan graduated from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA with a B.S. in Quality Systems Development. She obtained her degree while working a full-time job, part-time job, leading a Girl Scout troop and being a single parent.

At the time Denise worked at Central Coca-Cola Bottling Company in Staunton, VA. Her next position was at Coca-Cola Consolidated in Charlotte, NC in 1999 where she has lived ever since. She worked at Coca-Cola for a total of 10 years in the Quality Assurance labs and 5 years as a manager/supervisor. Some of her major accomplishments were reducing inventory by $1 million and implementing a JIT system (just in time inventory delivery). She developed onsite training programs for Water Treatment Analysis and Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment. She also played a major role in validation of new lubricants and sanitation chemicals by coordinating microbiological testing, data collection and communication to all teams.

In 2001 Denise started her own business, DiCi Services. A year later, the business became incorporated and Denise left her position at CCBCC to develop her business full time. At DiCi Services, she has taken on the role of Chief Financial Officer, Marketing and Sales Manager, Business Development, Human Resources, web developer, billing, training, and customer relations – as is common for most small business owners. During her ten years in business, she had grown her company to 16 employees including a service consultant, an office assistant, and a lead person. In 2011, Denise sold DiCi Services and started on a new adventure.

Currently, Denise is owner of Denise Can Assist, founded in November 2011. Denise Can Assist is a personal, professional and administrative assistant company. The many skills developed through her experience and volunteer activities has allowed her to make this transition seamless. Denise provides services such as contact management, web updates, social media management, marketing and e-communications, event planning and administrative tasks.

When not working, Denise enjoys dancing, both Swing and Contra, and hopes to add to the list of dances learned. She reads, enjoys her family and her dogs.
