Diana Gallaher has made Tennessee her home, except for the 10 years she lived in Alabama. After graduating from the University of Alabama, Huntsville with an engineering degree, she worked in the defense industry In Huntsville, AL. She visited Vanderbilt University Divinity School and after meeting Harmon Wray and sitting in on Dr. Sallie McFague’s constructive theology class, she knew VUDS was where she wanted to be. Understanding her vocational calling to be with people who are poor and marginalized, she subsequently has worked at MANNA, TJC and the Tennessee Disability Coalition.
During her first time at TJC, she realized that health care justice is her passion. Diana is excited about returning to the work that is her passion. She understands and celebrates that TJC never loses focus in helping people navigate the current health care system while ALWAYS working to effect change that makes healthcare more affordable, accessible and equitable for everyone. Diana’s other passion is another exceptional program – Lady Volunteers Basketball. Go Lady Vols! You can reach Diana at firstname.lastname@example.org.
