Diane is a civil engineer by training, with
a longstanding passion for sanitation and water. The cultural, environmental, and political complexities in finding
and implementing lasting solutions to the international sanitation and water
crises have attracted her to leave Canada to learn in Africa, Asia, and
Diane uses the skills she developed in the IWC’s masters

government, and communities.
"I've grown so much personally and professionally thanks to the IWC team."
