Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the daughter of a Civil Engineer and an Accountant, Dennisse is the third of 15 siblings. From an early age, she was an advocate of her friends and siblings, she used her voice to defend others, and was also the voice of those who were afraid to speak. She studied at the Inter-American University of Puerto Rico and in 2004 completed a bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a major in accounting. Dennisse created a balance between her family, her children, and her studies, and in 2009 she received her Juris Doctor from the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico. She passed the Puerto Rico bar in 2010 and became a lawyer in 2011 and since then her legal practice has been mainly in family, civil, labor, and corporate law.

In January 2016 Dennisse moved with her children to Pearland, Texas, where her husband, a Civil Engineer, accepted a job offer with Zachry Group. She worked as a legal assistant at the Law Office of Leena Bhasin, and in 2020 she joined the law firm of Jeff Gilbert Law Office as a legal assistant, and trained with Mary Peter Cudd learning Elder Law in anticipation of the Cudd Law Office merging with Jeff Gilbert Law Office.

Dennisse lives in Pearland with her husband, three children and her dog Roxy. Since moving to Pearland she volunteers at the Pearland Neighborhood Center, where among other things, she helps Spanish-speaking people apply and receive the services offered by the center. She volunteers as a co-leader and first aider of her daughter’s Girl Scout Troop. In her free time, she enjoys her family, volunteering, reading, and taking care of her garden.
