In January 1997, Diane assumed sole responsibility for actively managing the partnership, so that Beth could spend her days sailing, even during tax season. Fifteen years later in January 2012, Diane has resumed the role of partner, sharing the responsibilities and benefits with her partner in crime, Becky. Diane is a member of the American Institute of CPA's, California Society of CPA's, Fremont Chamber of Commerce, Fremont Warm Springs Sunrise Rotary, Southern Alameda County Estate Planning Council, and the American Association of University Women.
