    My name is Diane and I am very excited and privileged to be hired in such
    a wonderful office. I have been in some form of customer service all my
    life and love interacting with people. I have always tried to be fair
    and to treat others the way I would want to be treated. I have already
    met a few of you, but for those I have not, here is a little information about me.

    I’m married, with two wonderful children and I have a great love
    for animals. My husband and I have three dogs and two cats. We volunteer
    at a big feline sanctuary in Acton called Shambala, which is run by The
    Roar Foundation. We also open up our garden once a year for The MaryLou
    Heard Garden Tour Foundation which benefits the Tustin Sheepfold for abused
    and battered women and their children. Between all of the above I enjoy
    spending time with family and friends.

    I am looking forward to meeting all of you and learning about your talents
    and interests in the near future.
