Diana Adams


After graduating from Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Elementary Education, Diana moved to Florida and taught elementary students for 7 years where she earned numerous awards, notably including an Elementary Social Studies Teacher of the Year award for the state of Florida. Currently, in the process of earning her doctorate in Public Administration, Diana is a lifelong learner and enjoys new opportunities. Concerns about her physically-demanding schedule when moving out on her own combined with her desire to be independent led her to apply for a service dog through Canine Companions, and now she and Opus are inseparable. Her disability (cerebral palsy) mostly affects her mobility and while she tries to be as independent as possible when out in public, by the end of the day, her legs and feet can be wiped out so she will use a wheelchair at home. Having Opus to get things off the floor, pull the laundry basket from one room to another, and even get the fridge door open helps her to be independent. He has also encouraged her to become less self-conscious about her disability and be an advocate for accessibility and others with disabilities.

Diana is working to make a positive difference in her community, and no matter what role she’s in, Opus is working right by her side. She currently serves as Executive Director of Brevard Heart Foundation, Community Engagement Coordinator for Rock Paper Simple (a marketing company she and her husband own), and serves on the West Melbourne City Council.
