All age groups connect with Diane who knows what it is to be broken, homeless and hopeless. She was an elite athlete, professor, special education teacher and coach but in her twenties, Diane was diagnosed with a debilitating and incurable blood disease called cryoglobulinemia vasculitis. Pain became her constant companion. She was devastated and lost all that was important to her. Thinking she was better off dead than disabled she contemplated suicide. However, in the midst of her despair, Diane received the transforming love of Jesus. Through this experience she learned the secret to happiness and that God still has a purpose and plan for her life even if her body is broken.

She is an expert in perseverance and overcoming seeminglyinsurmountable obstacles. The disease turned into a gift that allows her to captivate the corporate executive, the athlete, the coach, the prisoner… She is Satan’s worst nightmare because she will not give up! She challenges us all to realize, “With God nothing is impossible and it’s never too late to be all He created you to be.” She’s experienced terrible tragedy yet she prevails with her husband, God’s love and the worlds first rescued Italian Greyhound Service Dog, Gracie. Diane ‘s dedicated her remaining days to bein g a light in the darkness giving God all the glory. America’s best kept secret is sharing hope and encouragement everywhere she goes and will dare you to do the same with a smile, a service dog and a second chance.
