Senior Brand Strategist
Dianne Maher is an experienced brand strategist who is thrilled to put her extensive brand development and communication talents to work on behalf of non-profits that make a difference. She is Vice President of her local Public Schools Foundation, an AVID tutor for aspiring first-generation college bound middle school kids, and a long-serving champion and facilitator for her school district community’s successful, ever-evolving fundraising initiatives.
Prior to joining Mission Minded, Dianne was an independent consultant supporting brand development, messaging, and tactical implementation for winery and non-profit clients. After an early stint at Coca-Cola, her career tastes took a more adult turn when she led adroit and accomplished brand and creative teams managing luxury wine brands in the Napa Valley and beyond.
Dianne earned her BA in Political Science from UCLA and her MA in International Relations from Boston University. She’s also always seeking to improve her tennis game, retain her waterskiing skills, explore more of Northern California’s stunning hiking trails, and catch up on that long list of books she wants to read.
