About Dena

Dena is a dedicated, determined Loan Officer and loves helping her clients find the best rates and programs to fit their lending needs. She understands the mortgage process can sometimes seem overwhelming and her goal is to always communicate, support, and help however she can to make everything go smoothly.

Dena most recently worked for Motion Mortgage, but before that, she managed the Accounting department in her family business, Childress Heating & A/C, Inc., for over 22 years. She started working there in high school, helping her parents and sister build a successful company that now employs over 30 people. She’s a member of the local Chamber of Commerce, the Fredericksburg Area Builders Association, and Fredericksburg Area Association of REALTORS®. She’s a supporter of Beauty for Ashes Women’s Home. It’s an organization that supports women who are struggling with addiction and their families.

Born and raised in Fredericksburg, VA, Dena truly knows the local area inside and out. She currently lives in Fredericksburg with her husband, Miles, their two sons, Nathan and Ian, and their Labradoodle mix dog. She loves spending time with her family and friends, and decorating her home is a big passion. She’s also a big runner — she’s even run five half marathons. She loved playing sports growing up, but now she’s a spectator for her two boys who play everything — golf, football, basketball, baseball, and martial arts. As a family, they’re big fans of the Washington Nationals.
