Diane Pucci loves the adventure of life and learning and meeting new people. Her big Italian family and great friends win the best of her time. Professionally she has worked as a teacher to children with special needs. Prior to that she was a child life specialist dedicated to meeting the needs of children and families in health care settings. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Bridgewater State College and her Masters at Wheelock College. She is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and earned a certificate of advanced study in special education administration known as GACS or Guardian Angel Community Services. She has lived and worked in Chicago, New York City, and Naples Florida. In her private life she is in constant pursuit of traveling and exploring the foods and customs of other cultures. Where she can, she sneaks in time for her love of reading, movies, cooking, and theatre. Most importantly, she is a dedicated advocate of the Adult Congenital Heart Association or ACHA.
