Denise Cullen has worked as a Clinical Social Worker in the medical field since graduation from USC’s School of Social Work in 1993. Her expertise has been in HIV/AIDS and working with terminally ill patients. Because of this work, and efforts to learn how to be more effective through continuing education classes and seminars, she has a special ability in the area of death, dying and grief. Her patient population included a large number of Intravenous Drug Users, and so she has professional experience working with patients suffering from addiction as well as personal experience. She has also become certified by the Grief Recovery Institute as a Grief Recovery Specialist. By nature of being a social worker, advocacy is sort of “built in”. The work necessary to effect the changes Broken No More is about is not easy; but through professional training and personal characteristics, Denise is well suited for the challenges.
Gary Cullen is a father and lost his only child Jeff to the disease of addiction. He is a successful business owner and is well versed in the sales, marketing and financial issues a organization like GRASP require.
