Diane Stevens is a mother and enthusiastic cook with a slightly unnatural interest in cleaning products. She shares Kylie Minogue’s view that housework can be rewarding, which is lucky because Diane has helped raise three step daughters and has three children of her own currently at home. Originally from Canada, Diane retired as a portfolio manager and partner of a private asset management firm in Toronto after an eighteen-year career in the investment industry. Ten years ago, looking to escape Canada’s frozen winters and ice hockey, Diane and her family moved to Australia, where she has immersed herself in the highs and lows of family life. She’s also very mean with a jug of Borax.
