“Diane is one of my favorite writers to work with. In my time editing her articles, she has been a true team player, taking on quick-turnaround assignments without missing a deadline and delivering top-quality pieces on a wide range of business and HR topics. She has both deep industry knowledge and the ability to convey it to the audience at hand with clarity and credibility. Above all, though, I value the care Diane always brings to her work, from turning in ready-to-go content to proactively ask questions and identifying opportunities for our team to excel—like sending over the schedule of a conference she was attending to ask what panels we might want her not to miss. She always takes pains to do her best, letting her editors rest assured.”
