Executive Director - All America Selections & National Garden Bureau

Biography

For more than 30 years, Diane has been immersed in gardening both personally and professionally.  She brings a passion to the subject based on a history in the field of horticulture publishing as well as a love for gardening and culinary exploration. Growing up on a small family farm in northern Missouri, Diane spent years helping her parents plant, tend and harvest a large home vegetable garden. As the president and publisher at Ball Publishing for 15 years, she led the way in connecting the commercial side of the industry with consumers via the live focus groups called Consumer Buzz Live! Diane also managed Ball Publishing’s entry into consumer garden book publishing. Since December of 2009, Diane has been leading both All-America Selections and National Garden Bureau through an exciting period of growth as they establish themselves as inspirational resources in the minds of garden communicators, public gardens, growers, garden retailers and home gardeners. All-America Selections has tripled in size with the addition of trials for Vegetative Ornamentals and Herbaceous Perennials, Container Trials, an expanded website, more Display Gardens and an ever-increasing social media presence. National Garden Bureau has also more than tripled in size with the addition of new programs, social media, therapeutic garden grants and new membership categories. With both organizations, the connection to the consumer is of topmost importance and by using that connection, she provides direction and insights to the industry as well as to GardenComm, an organization for  Garden Communicators where she serves as a National Director.
