Diana was raised on a Minnesota dairy farm, but it was a pig that started her career path. She went from sewing a tiny pig flap into a heart valve, to engineering a new concept modifying the orifice of the valve, to founding her own medical device company.
In Too Damb Dumb To Think, Diana shares intimate and relentless questions that plagued her as she faced the traumas of hostile corporate board meetings, an arduous backpacking journey in the Colorado Rockies, hospitalization, rehabilitation, and her identity quest. It’s a trail of discovery. And as she strives to maintain her audacious grasp on life, she learns that wallowing in the mud may be necessary for a time, but staying there is not allowed.
