Our Founder

Denise Castille, MBA

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S.  Every 40 seconds someone has a heart attack.  Every one minute someone dies from a heart-related event.  

When Denise survived the widow-maker heart attack she was unaware of these and so many other daunting heart disease statistics.   

Denise is the founder of Fresh Start for Your Heart because she wants to be impactful and intentional about raising heart disease awareness in underserved communities and helping heart event survivors thrive.
