Diane enjoyed growing up on a dairy farm which led to a job with Blaise Dairy for two years.  She then continued helping out on the family dairy for one year.  Shortly after, she started a 12 year career at Westown Gas Station in Alexandria.  In the last couple of years, she enjoyed working as a Direct Support Professional for LifeQuest in Mitchell.
