Diane is fully blind. So naturally, she has superhuman hearing, right? Nope. That's not how it works. Diane spent her entire life learning to navigate the world without vision to guide her and boy, did she figure it out. Diane suffers from Retinitis pigmentosa but that doesn't hold her back from being a tri-athlete, a former stand up comic, and currently the director of the CNIB Guide Dogs. We dive into the lack of accessibility, her love of cycling, and ALL things guide dogs!
