She left that position to raise her children and work part time asĀ  a bookkeeper for Alcamo Pools and Granite for the past 25 years. She is currently still employed there. During her time raising her girls, Diane became the advocate her daughter needed to ensure she received all the programs and services she would need to flourish. She served as a SEPTA president for four years. It was here she saw families like hers, who needed to learn that they have resources available to them and how to pursue them.
