Dianne received her nurses training at the Mack School of Nursing. She attended Brock University for her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and her Masters of Education. Experience in a wide variety of clinical and nursing settings gives Dianne a rich knowledge base that allows her an understanding of the severity of the injuries that our clients face.

Her role as the Executive Director of the Brain Injury Association of Niagara for six years gives her the advocacy skills that are required as a Medical Consultant to Gluckstein Lawyers. The additional services that Dianne provides to the clients of Gluckstein Lawyers are unique to this firm. Beyond the legal expertise in our office, Dianne offers medical insight that assists the lawyers to understand the degree of disability and impairment. Her knowledge is particularly supportive in “catastrophic determination”.

Among her various commitments, Dianne is a Board Member of the Hotel Dieu Shaver Hospital Foundation and the Niagara Board of Trade and Commerce. Dianne was a Member of the Board to Headway Homes, a non-profit organization that intended to provide residence and services for severely brain-injured individuals. She was a committee member to Brain Injury Awareness Month (BIAM).

Dianne is also an instructor for the “Brain Injury Training Program” offered to Registered Nursing Staff and Community Support Workers across Ontario. She co-ordinates conferences, some of which include “Compassion Fatigue”, “Seize The Day” and “From Hospital to Home” and the Toronto Collaborative Neurosciences Symposium. Dianne is continuously asked to share her knowledge and expertise at various conferences and clinics.
