As an elementary teacher, Sister Diane taught for almost 20 years in parish schools in Maryland, Wisconsin and at St. Pius X School in Wauwatosa. Following her teaching career, Sister Diane served as coordinator for the retired Salvatorian sisters for 11 years. In 1991 she joined the staff at Mother of Good Counsel parish in the position of Outreach to the Elderly and Homebound.
