Denver joined the Montecito board in 2012. He is a shareholder at the law firm of Hollister & Brace, where he specializes in business litigation.

In addition to the YMCA board, Denver also serves on the Board of Directors for the Santa Barbara County Bar Association and is a member of the American Inns of Court.

He is a proud graduate of Santa Barbara High School. He received his bachelor of arts degree from UCLA, his master's degree from Boston University and his J.D. from the University of San Diego School of Law.

Outside of his work and civic duties, Denver and his wife, Patricia, are busy raising their two young sons, Michael and Maddox.

“We are very happy to have Mike at the helm of our Board,” said Michael Yamasaki, executive director of the Montecito Family YMCA. “He brings an energy and civic-minded spirit to the Y and the community and I’m sure he’ll serve us well.”

Established in 1887, the Channel Islands YMCA is a cause-driven organization of seven YMCA branches serving Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, including Camarillo Family YMCA, Ventura Family YMCA, Santa Barbara Family YMCA, Montecito Family YMCA, Lompoc Family YMCA, Stuart C. Gildred Family YMCA in Santa Ynez, and Youth & Family Services YMCA.

The Channel Islands YMCA serves over 46,000 individuals and provides over $1.3 million in financial assistance to low-income families for child care, YMCA memberships, away camps, youth sports, teen after-school-programs, and operates Noah’s Anchorage Youth Crisis Shelter and the Isla Vista Teen Center.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
