Dyane Garvey is a grant writer and storyteller. She is married with two daughters. When she is not mopping up tears from her eldest (the compassionate diplomat), she is working to not be out-witted by her youngest (the strategic thinker). Meanwhile, her husband, when as a young man who wished to be surrounded by girls, is now constructing his man-cave in the garage as a sanctuary from the “girls” in his life. Currently, Dyane’s passion is to reconnect with her Hmong heritage through ways her family can live greener, healthier lives while supporting local producers and businesses as much as it is possible.
