Denise Lyons

Chief Operations Officer

My experience in Education started in 2008, when I joined the founding team of Washington Yu Ying PCS in the Business Department. In 2013, I joined the founding DCI team, to prepare for opening doors to students in Fall 2014. I believe that internationally-minded, multi-lingual education is an attainable goal and should be available to public school students in the District. In my personal life, I loves spending time family, cooking, hiking, swimming in the warm ocean, cycling, and traveling. I am conversationally proficient in Mandarin and possesses a rudimentary level of French, which is enhanced by working at DCI. I earned a BA in English from the University of Maryland, College Park.
