Diane experienced the joys and tribulations of older adults as she cared for her father. To help meet those challenges, her father moved into The Atriums where he found his perfect home. Guided by the loving hand of Lucille Tutera, Diane and her father felt like part of the family. Four years later, in 2018, Diane became the Community Relations Coordinator at The Atriums. Her understanding of the community and her experience as a caregiver made her a perfect fit for the position.
Diane has over 15 years’ experience in marketing and product development. Her education as an architecture major at Kansas State University and business management at Temple University led her to a career as a product manager for Silpada, House of Lloyd, and Saks Incorporated. That expertise and knowledge took her around the world to work directly with designers and factories throughout Asia, Europe, Canada, and Mexico. When it became time to care for her parents, Diane took a sabbatical. Now, she embraces her time with The Atriums’ seniors with the same dedication she had throughout her career.
