Born in Chicago, Illinois with a mind for maths Diane found herself in the discipline of accounting. Years later she would find herself in Australia and eventually in the SW of Western Australia where her love of the environment really took off.
Diane served on Albany City Council Council until 2003 and then ran as a candidate for the now-defunct Liberals for Forests, with a focus on environmentalism and ending the logging of the WA's forests. She was eventually elected in 2017 as a member of the WA Greens.
This is a great conversation about ending logging, ending climate change, ending extinctions growing renewable energy, growing food, learning from indigenous cultures and increasing regenerative farming. Diane's passion for the environment is inspiring and I'm excited to see where her career goes post politics.
