Program Description

Event Details

What's the "spark" that shaped the lives of our local leaders? Hear from a different speaker each month as they share their "Spark Story,"  the specific experience that sparked them to create change in the community. In addition, we’ll hear details about the work they are doing and what keeps them motivated to stay involved.     

Diane is a Social Worker by profession and Founder at A-NOD For Situational Awareness LLC, which is working to create a safe environment where those with special mental and behavioral health concerns are treated with dignity and respect by public servants. She is also a wife and mother of 4 sons, 3 of whom deal with invisible anxiety conditions.

The series includes committed volunteers, founders of organizations, business leaders, philanthropists, city employees, elected representatives, and more.
