Director of Accounting + HR
Diane Schmidt has worked with the founders of DDS for 19 years, starting at Codale Electric Supply with Dale as his corporate controller. She handled the accounting for Dale’s wife’s technology company for several years, and when Dale started DDS, he brought her in to head the accounting and administration once again.
Diane graduated from Southern Utah University with a master’s degree in accounting and she is a licensed CPA. She has long recognized that the best part of accounting is the relationships you build. Utah-born and -raised, she comes from a farming community of less than 1,000 residents. She learned the value of hard work from her dad, which has served her well through her life. She also learned to love the outdoors and the simpler things in life from her small town upbringing.
In her free time, Diane can be found reading a good book, working on her many yard and gardening projects, or vacationing with her family. She especially enjoys visiting Yellowstone and Disneyland, two of her favorite places in the world.
