Marketing and Design, Vice President
Diane graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Design and Environmental Analysis and began her design career working with small architecture and engineering firms in Santa Fe, NM and Ithaca, NY creating construction documents and details for residential, commercial, and heavy industrial projects. She also taught basic AutoCAD and 3D modeling. She became an official co-owner of Parkitects in 1997 and took the lead on in-house design, marketing and finance. Now that the company has dedicated personnel for each of those positions, Diane has stepped back from the day-to-day office functions to raise children and pursue a new career as a children’s book author. She continues to oversee the marketing campaigns and assists in various roles as needed around the office.
Diane spends every autumn volunteering as costume director for her children’s school musical. She’s not great with needle and thread, but is a whiz with safety pins and hot glue guns.
