Diana and her husband Mark had been traveling from Central Florida to the WNC Mountains for years before they decided to plant roots and raise their daughters Leighton and Paige in the Swannanoa Valley. In 2012, Diana reached out to Janet and contacted FIRST for help during an IEP meeting for her daughter. Diana understood the importance of having a qualified advocate to help facilitate the school’s obligation of providing the correct assessments, accommodations, and classes for her daughter to be successful in school. In 2017, Gaile and Janet reached out to Diana and brought her into the FIRST family as the Data Manager. Diana is passionate about the support and resources that FIRST has to offer and is proud to be part of the FIRST family. Diana is also a respite care provider, a substitute teacher, and an active participant in her daughter’s PTO. In her down time, Diana enjoys movie nights with her family, reading and crafting with her girls.
