Dione comes back to our Youth Program which she has been involved with since 2001!  Dione started in the Youth Program as an adult sponsor and then took over as Youth Director in 2002.  In 2004, she adopted twin boys and then found out she was pregnant, so she decided to take a small break from the Youth Program.  After the birth of her daughter in 2005 and an additional year off, she returned to the Youth Program as a Co-Youth Director in 2007 and stayed until 2010; she returned briefly in 2014 as the Interim Youth Director while also working in School District 11 with special needs and preschool students.

Dione came to Calvary with 12 years’ experience in corporate and University public relations having gained her BA in Mass Communications with a PR emphasis.  

Dione’s twin boys and daughter are all in middle school now (7th and 8th grade) and Dione is a busy single mama managing work, kids, and a dog!  For fun, Dione likes to run, read, watch movies, try new places to eat, and laugh…a lot.
