I’m Dianne, but I’ve already acquired the nickname ‘Daisy Di’!
I first heard about Driving Miss Daisy a few years ago, and loved the whole idea of a helpful and friendly personal service, driving and accompanying people to appointments, shopping and on outings. At the time I never thought that one day it would be me ‘Daisying’ around my local area of West Auckland!
My background is in office administration, but I’ve also worked for a large home care organisation and looked after a group of adults with brain injuries, in their own home. This has shown me the difficulties some people face with day-to-day living. I have also worked with my husband, John, in our engineering business in Ranui.
When the opportunity to be a Daisy came up I was really excited to be picked to be in the bunch!
I’m naturally a couch potato, particularly enjoying reading and quilting and other craft work, but I’m training for several half marathons and I love supporting John in his motor racing (he has an open sports car). We both enjoy photography and we have two terrier mutts, our fur kids Daisy and Sparky.
My area covers Oratia, Glen Eden, Kelston and Glendene, across to Titirangi and right out to Laingholm. Please give me a call, I look forward to hearing from you
