Career path

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 Australia.

Diane uses the skills she developed in the IWC’s masters program to find innovative solutions to sanitation and water service delivery by building mutually-beneficial relationships between industry, government, and communities.
