Relocated to the Austin area in July of 2010 and became Travis County’s Director for Human Resources Management Department. Prior to joining Travis County, Diane was most recently employed as the Director of Human Resources at the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, where she restructured the Human Resources, Benefits, and HRIS Offices, leading the Archdiocese to receive the HR Impact Award for Human Resources Service Technology in 2009, an award given by the Houston Chapter of SHRM. Diane has also led HR Services in both the higher education and healthcare fields.
As a Human Resources professional, Diane is interested in how initiatives driven by Movability Austin will assist employers in reframing the necessity of getting employees to work into an opportunity for greater employee satisfaction. In addition, as the mother of a special needs child, Diane is also highly concerned in how movability solutions can provide new employment opportunities to the disabled, who may face more challenges in commuting to and from a downtown employer.
