Meeting Dianah 10 years ago, it was evident immediately that she has a dynamic drive to advocate and improve our world. 

Her strength in character and knowledge of current issues is supported by her actions to initiate change, challenge the big issues and be the backbone of her community and State.

Dianah assisted our business with advocacy and guidance through council constraints and red tape. Giving up her own time she willingly assisted in writing letters of support and coordinated meetings.

With a sound knowledge of her local community, she linked us with Regional Development Australia, local tourism, and other similar business. Dianah is the glue that holds our community together.

Dianah keeps herself well informed and always has a strong grasp of issues affecting South Australian people. Her strengths remain in finding well thought out practical and cost-effective solutions.

For many years Dianah has been campaigning state and nation-wide for medicinal use of cannabis. She has been a speaker at rallies and has met with parliamentarians to get our State up to speed with other forward-thinking countries.

Dianah is not afraid to take a stance and challenge those at the top!

Other local businesses have been the beneficiary of Dianah’s support with evidence in improved marketing and sales.

Dianah made significant contributions to improving the health and wellbeing of her former community, Port Pirie. Her ability to engage with that community at a grass-roots level, as well as with community and other leaders, enabled positive inroads into a complex public health issue – lowering blood lead levels in Port Pirie’s children. This is further evidence that she is not afraid to tackle complex issues.

My personal opinion is that if Dianah is elected she will “keep those at the top honest” and will be a “strong voice for all”.

We can trust in her wholeheartedly and I would like everyone to know that she always makes time to listen and has the power to problem solve to find positive resolutions.

Dianah will be formidable in parliament taking on community and state issues whilst remaining grounded and in touch with people’s needs.

Thank you for all you do Dianah.

I have had the privilege of knowing this remarkable woman since our first meeting in the advocacy space that is, Cannabis and Hemp almost a decade ago.

That privilege extends to the enduring friendship we now share.

Dianah's passion and commitment to Regional Communities, local and state industry, the environment, our youth and our aging population, health, and wellbeing and so much more, is evident in her years of advocacy and voluntary contributions and support across many areas.

I have witnessed the diverse range of work Dianah has engaged in from persuasively lobbying for legislative change for legalisation of Medicinal Cannabis to South Australian Farmers being able to grow Industrial Hemp.

Dianah has been a captivating speaker at rallies, and equally compellingly, the quietly spoken voice at expos and regional and local industry events. She is just as comfortable facilitating, leading or supporting a cause behind the scenes.

She continues to support the efforts of United in Compassion and its founder, Lucy Haslam. The primary mission being to advocate for “patient access to Full Spectrum herbal Medicinal Cannabis extracts and dried herb Cannabis; in a manner which is safe, effective, affordable, equitable and favourable for patients, for the dignified relief of suffering.”

All the while, Dianah has encouraged and empowered sufferers to share their personal stories, further aiding the mission.

I have seen her graceful style of leadership open dialogues that may have otherwise been left wanting.  She is engaging, supportive and real!

Dianah's voice has always been one of compassion, integrity and authenticity and I could not think of a better candidate to grace a seat for you and your community.

Wishing you every success throughout your campaign and on election day.
