Diane Boyd, Executive Assistant to Ray Love

 

Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, Diane developed a love for music and the performing arts at a young age.  Diane's parents kept her and her siblings busy with a variety of activities.  Diane was a student of the Juanita Hamilton School of Dance for 13 years and was a student teacher for 5 of those years, teaching jazz, ballet and tap.

In the very early 80's, Diane became lead singer of a local Chicago R&B band.  In 1984, Diane gave her life to Christ and began to use her vocal gift from that day forward edifying and glorifying God, singing in three church choirs across a span of 25 years.

Diane built and ran a very successful event planning business, CAMIAN Enterprises, LLC for over 40 years, in addition to working full-time for Northern Trust Company.  Diane has somewhat stepped away from the business for the time being to focus on other opportunities.  Diane also creates custom gift baskets and diaper cakes.

Diane worked for Northern Trust for 39.5 years in various roles, from individual contributor to manager, throughout her lengthy career.  Diane retired in 2018.

Diane is the very proud mother of two awesome sons, Cameron and Ian, after whom her business was later named.

Diane is a servant at heart and finds joy in volunteering in her community.  During her tenure with Northern Trust, she chaired several committees focused on community involvement.  Diane also serviceos on the community outreach team at her local church.

Diane moved to Arizona in 2016, with her then job at Northern Trust, which is where she met Ray Love.  One conversation at lunch has led to two years of Diane serving as Ray's executive assistant.
