Diane is: a beloved daughter of God and follower of Jesus Christ; wife of Jack; mother of Jonathan, Ben, Danny, David, and Jennifer; grandmother of Luke and Colin, mother-in-law of Tory, Laura, Summer and Sarah; and godmother to Grace, Sinai and Zion. She is a graduate of the Harvard Law School and Perkins School of Theology, with 20 years of experience as a trial lawyer in the civil courts; 5 years as pastor of the Asian-American congregation of Bellaire UMC, and 7 years as the Director of the Center for Missional Excellence of the Texas Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. Diane is the founder and co-director of Together in Hope – a 501(c)(3) non-profit seeking to empower the poor in the Philippines, Ethiopia and Mexico. She is a former founding board member of Justice for Our Neighbors, which provides free and reduced immigration legal services as a ministry of the United Methodist Church; member of the founding Advisory Board of the Duke Center for Reconciliation; a leader of contemplative prayer retreats; an American Leadership Forum (ALF) Senior Fellow; a social justice advocate on behalf of the LGBTQ community, immigrants, refugees, returning citizens, foster children, victims of human trafficking, and all who need to know that they are beloved children of God and of infinite worth just as they are. Diane is passionate about introducing people to Jesus Christ, who, in love and celebration, welcomes ALL to the table of God’s abundance and grace and enters deeply into our suffering so that we move from suffering into life. Matthew 25:31-46 is her favorite scripture and defines her understanding of who we are called to be as the church: loving Jesus in the least of these God’s children. Diane enjoys her family (including her dogs), hiking, writing, reading, walking on the beach, swimming in the ocean, and the company of friends.
