Desperation and opportunity inspired Diane to start her own business. Working too many hours for someone else, Diane launched DDM Metering Systems in 1996 with a single client that she still has today. Even as an experienced business owner, Diane took WEV’s business training course in 2010 to help her reexamine her business goals. She knew a lot about her industry, but not so much about running a business. Taking the course also helped her develop a network of coaches and consultants. She joined WEV’s Thrive program in 2016 to keep her business growing. Diane is an active member and former President of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) in Ventura County, and is passionate about helping other women business owners in the community succeed.
