"I am trying to master being a webmaster!"
Diana Milton is back in her home stomping grounds.  She is originally from Susanville, California, but spent 30 years in the Bay Area as a personnel officer and an office manager for a hospital and then a home health agency. 

She currently works out of the Surprise Field Office and is a resident of Lake City with her husband of 19 years, Rick.  They live on 240 acres of beautiful land and Diana is very involved with her local community.  She is part of the Chamber of Commerce, is on the Board of Directors for the County Fair, belongs to the Sorority and the Red Hat Society.

So what is the Red Hat Society?  Apparently a lot of fun!  Diana gave us a brief description of the group starting with a loose dress code; women 50 or over in red hats and purple clothes and women under 50 in pink hats and lavender clothes.  The group is fairly new in Diana's area and they have already organized numerous social functions.

Diana also speaks with deep affection of the pride a smaller community like hers takes in its community events, like the County Fair.  It is this ambience that is particular to small communities that attracts Diana.

Besides Diana's social life and community obligations, she is the Contact Representative for BLM's Surprise Field Office.  She is also their personnel person and their webmaster.  Busy bees and beavers have nothing on Diana!!

Diana originally worked part-time with the Forest Service then was hired to the Alturas Field Office as a Contact Representative for about two years.  When a position became open in Surprise, Diana moved over.  She has been with the BLM for about five years now.
