Denise Cruz-Castino, a successful advertising copywriter for 15+ years, earned her psychology degree from UCLA while working as a counselor at one of the YMCA after-school programs. Also a screenwriter, she sold a short film called “The Fountain” to Disney, currently has a comedy script with Disney Feature Animation, has pitched sitcoms to the major networks, and has a dramedy script called “Five Weddings” in development with Uniglobe Entertainment. She is also a screenwriting judge for the Burbank Film Festival.

Denise and her longtime friend Christine Schuchart, an editor for many high-profile magazines and former online editor at the J. Paul Getty Museum, are currently putting their love for natural health to work by creating a website for busy parents who are trying to find simple ways to get their kids to live and eat healthier. Denise is the mom of a 7-year-old boy who keeps her very busy, so she knows firsthand what that is like. Look for the upcoming launch of their website
