Diana has lived in Durham since 1972, and raised her three children into adulthood here. While they were young, she was active in their classrooms from early childhood until high school graduation.
Diana has an AAS and BS in Computer Science, as well as an MBA in Finance. After working in Information/Technology in corporate settings for 35+ years, she began considering education as a second career. She started working toward a BA in Early Childhood Education at NC Central University, and continued to be inspired by the wonder and enthusiasm of young children. Diana initially connected with Wildflower Cottage as a practicum placement, and has she has remained with us since 2018!
In her spare time, Diana volunteers for several animal rescue agencies. Most of her weekends are filled by transporting dogs from shelters in the rural South to animal rescue centers up the east coast, as far north as Maine.
