Having focused her undergraduate studies in International Business and French, Diane’s favorite quote is from Voltaire’s Candide: “Il faut cultiver son proper jardin,” or “You must cultivate your own garden.” Not surprisingly, Paris followed by Munich, ranks as the place she would most like to live (behind St. Louis of course!).
When it comes to sports, Diane is an athlete as well as a fan. She enjoys ice hockey from both sides of the boards, whether cheering on the St. Louis Blues or playing for a women’s ice hockey team. Her favorite player is former Blues star Keith Tkachuk. She loves dogs and horses. And if she weren’t an attorney, Diane would spend her time working to strengthen animal cruelty prevention laws and volunteering for organizations assisting children with disabilities.
