Diane Lindsay

Branch Co-Leader Picture
Diane has a BS in computer science and worked as a computer software analyst before taking advantage of an early retirement in 2003. She was born with CMT but was not officially diagnosed until she was in her 50's. She knew something was wrong, but her doctors didn’t know about CMT, so she was diagnosed with a number of ailments from a big toe too short for balance to vertigo. Diane was born in a small town in Quebec and spoke only French until she came to the US at age 18. She’s happy to be supporting Roy with the Hartford Branch.
