Here is an extract from Diana’s Bio…
My parents divorced when I was five years old, at the time I was Daddy’s girl. When I turned seven I became a well known neighborhood entrepreneur with my Lemonade Stands, Fresh baked cookies and Pastel Drawings I did in front of the public.
At age eight I was asked to teach children in the neighborhood how to draw and paint. I began writing letters as an environmental activist around the ages of 8 and 9, and then began selling homemade products at our local Hallmark. By the time I reached twelve I’d saved so much money, my Grandmother took me to a local bank to open up a savings account.
I became an extremely active out in my day kind of a gal and at the same time paid my own way to YMCA youth summer camp and trained to be a competitive runner every morning before school and during the summers where I always placed second or third during City and College Track Meets.
At the age of 15 I was the youngest and only girl to climb to the summit of Mt Rainer, which got me continuing in Mountain Climbing and later Rock Climbing for sport. It was the exposure to being active in the outdoors and my brothers asthma that got me caring deeply about Nature Preservation. I graduated with a B.A. in Pre-Law thinking of Environmental Law, but instead did post graduate work as a trained Secondary Ed teacher. Pay sucked, so thought there was a better way I could serve as a teacher and that’s when I founded a nonprofit focused on public educational outreach about how one can switched to better lifestyle choices and learn about the eco/sustainable products and services in the marketplace.
I’ve been working in real estate since 2004 with maintaining Eco/Sustainable practices, which I have discovered over the years is quite cost effective. As a Consultant I help other companies do the same and share my Story at to the nonprofit sector at Speaking events.
