Founder

Dena Rosko began her passion for storytelling at a young age by writing short stories and photographing family events. Prior to founding Text and Pixels, Dena created Dena Rosko Photography, which she developed from 2004-2009. There she provided event, editorial, and marketing photography services for a variety of clientele, including local publications Renton Magazine and The Business Report.

Dena graduated with a Master of Arts (MA) in Communication and Organizational Leadership Studies from Gonzaga University and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in English and Communication emphasizing Creative Writing and Mass Media Studies from the University of Washington. She also studied Journalism, Bible, and Theology at Multnomah University.

During her graduate studies, Dena gained an appreciation for developing organizations via communication consulting, intermedia, vocational development, and narrative health. She drew on her own experiences with adversity, writing, and her professional background. She now develops and consults organizations with a special interest in health. Dena bases her leadership philosophy and consulting modalities in part on her Master's Thesis, which explored fear of death in end of life caregiving contexts via photographs and poems as produced on a blog.

Dena continues developing a beneficial return for clients via her doctoral program emphasizing organizational leadership, systems, and development via narrative, compassion, and partnership. Dena collaborates with people and organizations experiencing or wanting growth. She also supports those who want to improve their communication strategies or leadership practices. Dena collaborates with clients to develop a strategy that reflects their vision, mission, and goals and to deliver quality results via culturally engaging and socially beneficial communication. She draws from her faith, a love for people, a gifts-based approach, and holistic leadership style.

Dena's memberships include American Photographic Artists, Society for Applied Anthropology, Western States Communication Association, and Challenging Hate.

For fun, Dena enjoys watching classic movies, live music, connecting with people, photographing people, places, details, and events with her editorial style, reading, writing, journalling, blogging, social networking, walking, exploring, and picnicking at parks, trails, high deserts, and waterscapes, public markets, city centers, sunrises and sunsets, live music, and tea or lunch dates with friends.
