Diane Valenti

DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS

Knowing that I’ve accomplished my job to the best of my ability is what motivates me.

The simple things in life are what make it sweet. For Diane Valenti, that includes wine, chocolate, regular exercise and a healthy dose of the “Food Network.”

Diane’s optimism and passion for life have fueled her 25 years of experience as a legal secretary for a Major League Baseball club, Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren s.c., and Foley & Lardner, where she worked alongside Ulice Payne, Jr.

As Director of Operations, Diane manages the day-to-day operations of Addison-Clifton and is the Executive Assistant to Ulice Payne, Jr. When asked how she ended up at the firm, Diane laughs, “Just call me ‘Velcro’ – I go wherever Ulice goes!”

Diane was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She started working fresh out of high school and never looked back. “Over the past 25 years, I have acquired useful organizational skills and learned to deal with clients on a professional level,” she says. “Knowing that I’ve accomplished my job to the best of my ability is what motivates me.” For Diane, there are few things better than leaving the office thinking I definitely earned my pay today!  Although a box of Godiva chocolates is right up there.
