Dianne Wiebe has had several careers since launching herself into
the work world. After creating and providing an innovative program
for handicapped adults, she moved to directing non-profits. In a fortunate
convergence, she found herself able to combine architectural preservation
and main street revitalization efforts to create a fusion of progress and
protection at a statewide level.
For ten years in upstate New York, she was a journalist, writing news
and feature articles for the Kingston Daily Freeman, the Shawangunk Journal
and several other local papers. She also worked as communications
and publications director for the Redemptorist Fathers at Mount St.
Alphonsus Retreat Center, and for the Ellenville School District. Ms.
Wiebe successfully combined skills in writing, photography and in layout
and design to produce high quality publications and several books. She is
co-author and publisher of a non-fiction book titled Yama Farms, a Most
Unusual Resort, set in rural New York.
