My name is Denissa Cruz- Alvarenga. I’ve been here at The Village at The Woodlands Waterway since Sept 2016, that’s almost 4 years! A little about myself, I’m a person who has several interests. I like to cook, bake, draw, read (it can be both novels and educational), kayaking, bike riding and the most important of all I like watching Netflix (mainly the comedy movies and travel, food, and animal documentaries). On the weekends my husband and I like to travel to our undeveloped property (in Cleveland, TX . . . by the middle of nowhere) in the evenings and start a fire and sit by it and watch the beautiful sunset.
So, what is my role here at The Village? Well technically I have several roles. . . I’m the “Fun Lady” who is always getting the residents “moving n’ grooving” or at least that’s what Ms. Ruth says. When it’s time for The Jolly Trolley (also known as the Social Hour Trolley) I am known as the “Wine Lady or the Booze Lady”. When I go and visit Ms. Lee, she calls me “sweetie” because I never forget to bring her an evening snack. Whenever one of the residents is feeling down, I am their “friend”. When there are simple issues with the TV, I’m known as “The Little Girl who fixes the TV”. So, as you can see I am a lady with many different roles, I guess that’s why my job title is Life Enrichment Coordinator because I’m here to make my residents happy and enrich their lives, which is something I truly enjoy!
