All the Way From There to Here - Diana’s Story
Born in West Texas and raised in a small border town with limited academic and job opportunities, Diana understands the challenges many face when they want to achieve more than seems possible. With her rich heritage, Diana set out to bring change and voice to a diverse and inclusive segment of her community in her formative years and was actively involved in extracurricular programs and in knowing how systems and government infrastructure worked.
As her curiosity for solving problems and finding solutions continued to grow, she went on to contribute her skills in advocacy and policy issues, thus beginning her career in servant leadership. Her quest for knowledge and her curiosity to meet people and experience different cultural perspectives give her insight to look at the big picture while keeping a grounded focus. From becoming the first Latina elected to represent Williamson County in the Texas State House of Representatives, to running marathons all over the world, Diana’s achievements are indications of her mental fortitude and ability to navigate challenges.
One thing Diana doesn’t take for granted is the fact she’s enjoyed a life and career full of rich and diverse experiences and she’s committed to sharing what she’s learned. Now, Diana shares key lessons from her life and business as a speaker and panelist.
