The daughter of a Navy Wave and career Naval Officer dad, she has a natural love for travel and has been fortunate to visit many countries but still has many left on her bucket list! She was raised in Hawaii and San Diego, then Central California. She continued her move north and headed to Oregon with her son in 1985. They both feel blessed to call beautiful Oregon home.
Diane’s career has been truly varied from owning and operating a Christmas Tree farm, working as a paraprofessional/tax preparer and as client software support for CPA firms, to running her own bookkeeping and payroll business since the 90s. In 2000 she was recruited by a client and spent the next 27 years working as a controller for a privately owned small hydroelectric project, while still operating a reduced-clientele bookkeeping company.
Her passions are travel, dogs and kids and a proud mother to her amazing son. She began fostering dogs in 2008 and has fostered over 84 to date for rescues in Lane County. Diane has also been a strong advocate for children, especially those in foster care, and supports CASA in its mission locally.
All of this to explain that Diane hates being bored, enjoys staying busy, and has always felt her role as a bookkeeper was to be a support for her clients as they grew larger and more successful, providing them with tools to run their businesses efficiently and knowledgeably. She looks forward to working with you and helping you succeed in your goals!
