Dena Bess is a married mother of three wonderful children. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Dena first became aware of the Safety Kid program in 2007. Shortly thereafter, Dena decided to learn more about the program and train to present the program in various schools.

Over the last seven years, Dena has not only presented the Safety Kid program in just about every Jewish day school in Los Angeles, but she has also traveled to communities in AZ, NY, NJ & CT to teach children about personal safety. More recently, Dena also assists in teaching workshops to train new volunteers in the Safety Kid program. When Dena is not busy with Safety Kid, she spends time with her husband and children, runs races and reads as often as she can.
