Meet Our Executive Director Here at El Paso Children’s Foundation: Dennece Knight

Why you do what you do?

I do it because I love it. It’s a joy to be able to dedicate my skills towards something that you absolutely know has genuine benefit for real people…those giving as well as those receiving. The only thing better is to being able to do that work with other dedicated people. I work with an incredibly talented team. That makes it a real delight.

Years at the Foundation: 11.5

Favorite quote or saying: “There is in the worst of fortunes the best of chances for a happy change.” Euripides, 484-406 B.C.

Hobbies: Cooking, gardening, tai chi, chi gong, yoga.

Passions: My husband and I both do production and are both movie buffs (which means we are a real pain to go to a movie with because afterwards we critique everything: the casting, the script, the timing, everything). Also, Brian and I love to travel and feel fortunate that we have been able to see some of the world.

Goals: I want to establish a public garden, grow old, old, old and have a cane collection.
