About our Service:
Why care, who to care for, and ways to show our care. Everyone has an important role to play in making the world a better place.
About our Speaker:
Diane received her BSN from the University of Florida in 1969. She then joined the Air Force and was sent to Davis Monthan in Tucson, AZ. There, she met and married her, now, ex-husband. She has two children, Kim and Brian. After working as a nurse in both full-time and part-time jobs, she returned to UF, where she earned her Master’s and Ph.D. in counseling psychology. She had a private practice, worked as an adjunct professor at St. Leo’s University, as a Crisis Intervention Specialist for the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, and as a Senior Psychologist at Lowell Correctional Facility. Diane was a founding board member of the Marion County Literacy Council, and she is a past-president of Altrusa International of Ocala. Today, she enjoys living right behind her son and his wife, Jae, and her two grandchildren, Dexter and Edith.
About our Musicians:
Caitlin Regan has loved to sing all her life. In college, she regularly performed the National Anthem for the Hudson Valley Renegades, the Single-A baseball team for the Tampa Bay Rays, later became the lead singer for her church’s worship band and has been a member of the Jacksonville Symphony Chorus since 2012. Her favorite audience, however, is her two young daughters, who love to hear “If,” by Bread, and Elvis Presley’s “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” before bed each night.
Job Meiller has loved the guitar for many years. It’s usually in the car, tuned up and ready to play. He is often found livening up parties or local cafes with his rich baritone voice, interesting repertoire and guitar chords. And Job is always ready to help out with a song!
