Life is an adventure! That's the way KOMO 4 Weekend Morning Anchor, Denise Whitaker views her time here on earth. Denise and her husband Terron enjoy Adventure Racing, a multi-sport competition where you navigate your way through a secret course by mountain biking, hiking, canoeing or kayaking, with a little climbing or rappelling thrown in for good measure!

Professionally, Denise worked her way up through the ranks of television news, anchoring weekend weather, reporting and finally anchoring the news.

She grew up in and around Chicago, but called five states home, before she found her new home in Seattle. Denise loves doing what she can for others, serving in the past on the boards of Big Brothers Big Sisters, Susan G Komen Foundation, American Diabetes Association and various groups that promote health and physical fitness. Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee appointed Denise to his Governor's Council on Fitness and awarded her the Arkansas Traveler Certificate.

When she's not outside running a trail, or mountain biking, you'll find Denise in the kitchen, creating gourmet, yet healthy recipes.
