She completed her residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Louisville in 1995 and was then Chief Medical Resident in Internal Medicine from 1995-96. She practiced office Internal Medicine in South Louisville for one year before founding the first Hospitalist practice in Louisville at Caritas Medical Center in 1997. She practiced as a Hospitalist until 2002 then took time off to be a full-time mom to her two children. During those 4 years away from practicing medicine, she was introduced to the concept of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy and began studying that field with vigor. She quickly recognized how important multisystem hormone balance is to health, wellness, and aging, and the need in her community for a medical approach that focuses on that as a foundation of preventative health.

She has been a practicing Emergency Medicine Physician with Emergency Medicine Physician Associates serving Clark Memorial Health from 2008 to present. Dr. Dennison also serves as a Clinical Professor in Emergency Medicine of the University of Louisville. While working in the Emergency Department and through her teaching appointment, she noticed a significant number of patients with preventable diseases who have not been educated on diet, nutrition, genetics, exercise, and lifestyle changes. This, combined with her love for education, fostered an interest in functional medicine, prevention, and teaching patients about healthy lifestyles. She realized how little knowledge patients have regarding their diets and lifestyle choices and how it can affect them negatively.
