Denise Dixon is a dreamer and a doer. Born in Jackson, Mississippi and raised in North Las Vegas, NV, Denise is motivated by her involvement in her local community and has made it her personal mission to use her life to give back. In 2009 Denise launched Sister2Sister Connection in an effort to support young girls who come from at-risk environments. Shortly after, Denise added Men of Tomorrow to support young boys from similar environments. After launching both programs, Denise expanded her efforts and opened the Center for Life Enhancement which houses both mentoring programs’ after school and summer enrichment programs offering leadership and life skills development. Not one to rest on her laurels, Denise pursued her lifelong dream of opening a cosmetology school and on March 24, 2015, the Cosmetology Institute of Las Vegas opened its doors to 25 students in North Las Vegas.
