Continuing her passion for family service, Dianna served as Chairperson of the Forsyth County Domestic Violence Fatality Review Board from 2009 – 2011. As Chair of this organization, she engaged with many community agencies to study and raise awareness of domestic violence issues in the county and state. After working with the review Board, she gained certification as a Child Forensic Interviewer and served with a local non-profit to monitor court-ordered child visitations. From 2016-2022, Dianna worked as an Intake Coordinator at a family law firm. With her love for helping families, Dianna is pleased to serve as a parapro and looks forward to working alongside great teachers at YHALE to give children an enjoyable English language experience.
