Diana Myers admits that she was not a natural academic. She retook her O levels (GCSE equivalent) in the first year of sixth form, and struggled through her A levels. However, she went on to do a degree in Psychology and later a Master’s degree. Diana later studied full time for career guidance/education and studied human resources by distance learning while she worked full time.
Having tried out a number of jobs before and after a degree, she decided to qualify as a careers advisor at 25, progressing to management roles in adult guidance. Ten years later, Diana retrained in human resources with management roles in finance and heavy industry. She married her partner in Mauritius in 1995 and moved to Sydney, Australia in 2000 with dual nationality.
She has further gone on to build a property portfolio while working in human resources. 'Retiring' at 53, she plans to move to Cairns on the barrier reef in 2015, where she aims to be a fundraiser for charities. Outside of work, Diana thoroughly enjoys building/interior design, finding and selling collectables/antiques, badminton, travel, and dance.
