Diane Stover is vice president for marketing and innovation strategy at Memorial Health System, and in her career as a communications expert she’s had to dance around some hot issues from time to time. She’s got the gift of rhythm by default having been born and raised in Philadelphia. The Philly beat had her and her girlfriends first on and last off the dance floor throughout most of her life. A former city champion field hockey player, Diane takes competition seriously and is willing to work diligently to get the audience ready for a good time. Diane has proudly supported a variety of Center for the Homeless programs sponsored by Memorial. Her son Ben was a Center volunteer in high school. Diane is hopeful that her performance won’t embarrass Ben, fiancé Bob or dog Sydney. She also hopes the other competing couples understand that unless they’re dancing machines, they should give up now!
