Denise Brewer is a parent, national award-winning journalist, community leader and volunteer. She represents the amazing District 71 and knows that our greatest asset is our people and it’s time for their interests to be advocated for at the capitol.
Denise’s family roots go back more than 100 years in Oklahoma. While she is Oklahoman through and through, she was raised all over the world in tow of her father’s decorated service in the Air Force, and was born in Tachikawa, Japan. Through her travels, she has seen first-hand that education and hard work are the cornerstones of a strong society. In between assignments, Denise was raised in Elk City in western Oklahoma. Once her family settled back in the US, they made Norman, Oklahoma their home. All the while, Denise focused on her childhood dream of being a journalist.
Denise worked her way through college, graduating from the University of Oklahoma earning her bachelor’s degree in Journalism. Upon graduation, she followed in the footsteps of her hero, Walter Cronkite and became a television journalist. Over the course of her award-winning career, she has worked as a news anchor for a number of television affiliates in Texas and Tulsa, as well as NPR.
Denise made Tulsa her home in 1990 and believes that Tulsa is on the verge of great things if our state government would only get out of the way. While she loves this state, she knows that our vibrant community has been handicapped by policies enacted by the leadership at the state capitol. We must fix our legislature before Tulsa can truly become a destination for businesses and travelers alike.
In covering stories all over Tulsa, Denise has seen the true potential of our citizens. Tulsa is brimming with entrepreneurial spirit, culture, and hospitality. She believes that we must put our assets front and center and deliver for the working families in our community. In order to do that, we must invest in our healthcare system, our kids, their teachers and the schools that educate our workforce.
When not at the Capitol, Denise lives and works in Tulsa. She is the proud parent of three great kids, Patrick, Riley, and Aidan.
