Di was one the first female adventurers to walk 1,600 miles, the length of California in 1973. She broke ground as the first female Outward Bound Instructor in Utah, she spent 10 years as a commercial river guide and trainer, and co-led the successful start up of California’s first sea kayaking company, Sea Trek, in Sausalito in 1982. For Di’s 50th birthday she set off on a successful 23-day solo sea-kayaking adventure 30 miles off the coast of Australia, and more recently swam 18 miles over 5 days on an expedition in the Sea of Cortez. Di’s vision to start helping women to become more effective leaders took full shape on one her solo adventure retreats (she had an airplane drop her off on a tropical island with her kayak for a few weeks). She left the island inspired and with a plan to serve women who are in a position to make a difference
