Our Central Office Director, Diane, moved with her husband, Lou, and two sons, Sam and Jack, to Missouri in 1994. A native Virginian, she majored in English Literature at Radford University and worked as a legal secretary and corporate paralegal for fifteen years in various law firms in Richmond, Virginia. She was also employed as personal assistant to Justice Charles S. Russell of the Supreme Court of Virginia for five years before his retirement from the bench. Diane has been with Restoring Hope since January 2014. Her chief responsibility is organizing and managing the steady flow of documentation throughout the agency while pursuing the relentless paper chase of State-required certifications, and her main objective is to do so with a smile!
