Commons Coordinator


As the Brainerd Commons Coordinator, Diane manages the commons office in its many functions, answering questions and assisting students, organizing and planning commons events, and tracking student related issues.

Diane started at Middlebury College in 1999 in College Advancement. Her favorite part of her job is working with the students. "They all have their little quirks and foibles, and it's amazing to watch them grow and change over the course of their four years at Middlebury."

She and her husband Ray have been married for 33 years. They have 2 grown and married daughters and 2 grandsons (and another on the way) whom they adore. In her spare time, Diane likes to quilt, craft, read,
garden, play with their 4 year old yellow lab, Chloe, spend time with her famly
and play with her grandsons.
