The Flourish HR Team
Founder and HR Consultant
As the Founder of Flourish HR, Diane works exclusively with small to mid-sized mission-based companies to deliver HR and and Organizational Development.
Beginning within the maze of Fortune 500 company Human Resources, she quickly found a disconnect between her eco-conscious nature and big company ethos.
In 2001 Diane committed to working with companies that align with her values and has worked in-house leading HR for Birkenstock USA, Avalon Organics and Numi Tea. As a consultant, she has partnered with many companies and nonprofits doing their best to change the world.
When she isn’t working, you’ll probably find Diane in her vegetable garden, doing yoga or walking/ hiking the Bay Area with her husband and two dogs.
