She also currently serves as Governor Newsom’s appointee to the Contractors State License Board, member of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, Chair of the Policy and Legislation Committee for the Veterans Caucus and past Parliamentarian, and Vice Chair for Legislation for the California Senior Legislature. Prior to serving her community through these roles, Diana served as the President and Commissioner for the Los Angeles County Commission for Older Adults and California State Assembly field representative. Diana has always recognized that change is a direct result of action, and has additionally collaborated with organizations and sites on various boards past and present pursuing progress for California’s youth, foster care, mental health, voter registration, and criminal justice reform.
Diana has been and is still dedicated to a life of service and recognizes the importance of community outreach, voter and consumer protection in furthering both her personal and the overall mission to achieve justice for all.
