Diana C. Giraldo is a storyteller who began her career in print journalism writing for community newspapers across the San Joaquin Valley. Since then, Diana has applied her knowledge in strategic communications through a holistic eye at Westlands Water District and the Fresno Chamber of Commerce.
While at Westlands, Diana worked closely with District staff to inform and educate stakeholders, the press, members of the community, and elected officials about ongoing regulatory implementations, technological advancements and innovation, and the effect water availability has on the region. Through a boots-on-the-ground approach, Diana became the "face of the District" and led tours teaching interested parties of District operations, the Central Valley Project, and community impact of water reliability to advance the District's interest.
Diana obtained her B.A. at California State University, Fresno in Mass Communications and Journalism, with a specilization in print media, and a minor in Spanish. As an Environmental Policy and Management graduate student at University of California Davis, Diana plans to specialize in Climate Change Science & Policy and Water Resource Management.
