As the faculty offices coordinator, Diane Wetzold helps keep the hive of the 4th floor buzzing. Learn more about the new grandmother and what brought her to Indy from Queens, NY 20 years ago.
Q: How long have you been at Kelley?
Diane: It was six years in August. Before that, I worked for 15 years in the elementary school my three daughters attended. It was a great set up for a mom – I was off work when they were and I worked in the office and served as the treasurer.
Q: How did you get into your first role in education?
Diane: My husband’s job relocated our family to Indianapolis from New York in 1997. It was fall time in Indiana so it was rainy and gloomy and I missed my family and friends. Someone suggested that I volunteer in the elementary school. I went one day and ended up volunteering for a year and a half, after which they hired me.
Q: What were some of the biggest differences moving here?
Diane: New York is crowded and always busy. Indiana is much less so. I’d never visited Indiana before moving here, but it turned out to be a great place to live and raise our three daughters.
