Diane Pires

Director

Diane has worked with SPIRIT Open Equestrian Program since 2013.  She has vast experience with the Program:  as a participant, a program activities volunteer and a valuable project manager for different public relations and fundraising events.

After retiring from Northrop Grumman, Inc., Diane wanted to give something back to the community and to continue being an advocate for animals and their role in human lives. Serving as a volunteer and a Director at SPIRIT unites these two interests. She believes in SPIRIT’s mission and is working to attract long-term donors, ensuring that SPIRIT will continue to serve Fairfax County residents for many decades. Diane commits to support for the horse rescue and retraining program and to continue her work in the public relations and fundraising areas.
