Born and raised in New York, Diane moved with her husband Mark to Maplewood in 1995 where her son Max and daughter Ali joined the party in 1996 and 1999. In 2003, Diane retired from Neville, Rodie and Shaw, a long standing NYC investment management firm. She had worked there since graduating from Barnard in 1983, (the last ten years spent as principal and portfolio manager). The ensuing and current life chapter have been crammed with volunteer work of all kinds, tennis and paddle matches, (mine and the kids), 2 book clubs, travel, and writing. Diane joined the MMLF board in 2012 and has been working on communications, investments and fundraising ever since.
