Denise-Marie Nieman - Palm Beach Beauties - Palm Beach County Attorney

What she loves about her job: In addition to no two days ever being the same in the past 28 years I’ve been with the county attorney’s office, I am blessed to work for and with brilliant people who care about Palm Beach County. I learn something new every day.


First job: Phil Youtie, the founder of David’s Bridal, gave me my first job as a stock girl when I was 14. Today, he still serves as one of the most influential people in my life.


On philanthropy: Making dollar donations is important, but being charitable day by day through our words and actions is empowering and benevolent, too. Intangibles such as a listening ear, a kind word, compassion, appreciation, acknowledgment, even a smile can positively impact the world in a way that doesn’t cost a dime—only a flash of your time.


Her spiritual path: From day one I sensed that there was an unseen team taking care of me. Trust and faith in something bigger than ourselves changes everything for the better.


Will always remember: My middle school art teacher, Mrs. Stafford, who recognized not only my artistic talents but also my escape-artist needs at that time in my life. She still comes to mind when I have any doubt about being able to do something.


Proudest achievement: When my first book, Rock the World Rehab, was published


Goals: To learn how to speak French fluently and consistently sleep seven hours a night


Personal style: Sparkly casual with a boho twist—think tulle, tiara, denim jacket, cheetah-print pumps


Known for: Seeing the glitter in the litter by choosing happy over crappy


Stress reliever: Shoe shopping. Less is more—except when it comes to shoes.
