Denise GentryDenise is one of the newest additions to the SoftWash Systems team. She has taken on the job of managing all elements of the SoftWash Academy Online.

An Air Force veteran, Denise served in a number of bases as a Base Contracting Officer with her late husband, also a Contracting Officer. They moved to Florida 40 years ago and put down roots in Brevard County, where they raised their daughter, Kristen.

A love of teaching and children led Denise to change her life course at 35 years of age and get a Masters Degree in Education. She taught 4th, 5th, and 6th grades for a number of years. Then, her love of all things tech led her to finish her education career as a Technology Coordinator for an Elementary School in Alabama, training both the teachers and the students.

After retiring from education, Denise moved to Florida once again to be near her daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren. She found she just wasn’t suited to retirement, so she used her tech skills as the Online Director for a large church in Clermont, Florida. After building the highly successful Online Campus from scratch and leading the campus through the pandemic lockdown, Denise decided it was time for other challenges.

Managing the SoftWash Academy Online has given Denise the opportunity to combine her tech skills with her education background, and she is loving it! She especially loves being able to assist those in the SoftWash Family with the education they need to be successful.

Denise lives in Leesburg with her 95 pound bloodhound, Gracie. Her daughter’s family lives nearby.
