Instructor| Mentor | Speaker

I equip individuals and organizations with the tools and strategies to become more resilient and thrive in the face of any challenge.

"I still use the information from the first time I heard you speak..."

Every time I hear Diane speak about preparedness and resilience, I learn something that improves my readiness. Her message is always updated and considers our current environment.

"Phenomenal today at IAEM! Thanks for bringing the important topic of harassment to the EM community. Much needed!!!"

Meet Diane

Before I "tripped" into disaster work, I had multiple jobs and life experiences that would have benefited from some preparedness, operations and continuity planning. And it seemed as if each response was the first one - all over again.

Just like others, I work to adjust to an ever-changing disaster landscape.

Sometimes I am asked how I can sleep at night. That is simple (and yet not easy), I keep working to move my community forward in preparedness and move that needle!

That's why I really focus on getting in front of groups of people to share my experience, tools and resources.
