Denise Villani served two Army tours in the Middle East, supporting Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. She also served the United States as an Arabic linguist and worked as an analyst for several federal intelligence agencies.
With her years of service behind her, Denise is excited to transition to a civilian opportunity as franchisee of the new Express Employment Professionals office in Leesburg, VA.
A Family-Friendly Franchise
Denise has been married for almost 16 years and has three young children, ages 5, 3, and 18 months. When she looked into franchise opportunities, she wanted one that was well suited to work and family balance.
“Express is the perfect fit for this time in Denise’s life,” says Brook Wise, Express Regional Franchising Director. “Unlike many franchise opportunities, the Express business model allows plenty of time for family on evenings and weekends.”
The Right Back Office Support
“Denise has always had an interest in entrepreneurship and even started a small company of her own,” Brook said. “After experiencing the difficulties and roadblocks in starting a company from scratch, she appreciates the ‘head start’ a solid franchise can offer, including training, business support, and a well-defined business model.”
That support continues for franchisees, who receive continued mentoring throughout their careers with Express.
A Personal Passion
“Denise has had an exciting career serving our country, but now she is ready to do something positive and uplifting,” Brook said. “She wants to make a huge difference in her community and she sees the Express model as a way to accomplish that.”
Denise has a BA in Liberal Arts from Thomas Edison State University in Trenton, NJ. She is an avid runner, and has completed both the New York City and the Marine Corps marathons.
