Denise Kennemer, MS, Certified Journal Instructor, is the founder of Scribing a Life. Her mission is to teach mid-life women how to use reflective writing to redesign their lives and their careers on their own terms. For over thirty two years Denise has provided training and development services and coaching to help professionals be successful in the workplace. She has facilitated a wide range of soft skill training including journaling in the classroom, coaching, and quality management tools.

Propelled by her own personal transitions through journal writing, Denise is passionate about sharing this resource with mid-life women who are making a mid life career change. It is her sincere desire to help women discover just the right mix of work, volunteer, and leisure activities that support their core values and leverage their interests, talents and life experiences.
She received her Master’s degree in Human Environmental Sciences from Oklahoma State University and numerous facilitator certifications from Achieve Global and Developmental Dimensions International. She has worked as the Director of Professional Development at Oklahoma Department of Career Tech and as the Chief Institutional Learning Officer at Metro Technology Centers.
In her leisure time, Denise enjoys traveling with her husband, reading, volunteering in her church and spending time with friends and family. She and her husband make their home in Oklahoma.
