WOMAN ON FIRE HONOREE
Diana Francis, Entrepreneur, Author & Personal Trainer
Diana Francis is a successful entrepreneur, author and professional trainer with a passion for empowering people through natural healing methods. She started her journey as an administrative assistant but eventually fulfilled her entrepreneurial aspirations by starting her own spa where trained others in skincare and massage therapy. After selling her spa, she joined the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) as a streetcar and bus operator, and eventually rose to a management position where she developed her leadership and strategic planning skills.
Despite her success in the corporate world, Diana felt called back to her passion for self-development and entrepreneurship. She became a licensed Mortgage Agent and now operates her own business, Porchlight Mortgages, where she helps clients achieve their financial goals through home ownership.
Diana is a dedicated mother of four children and a proud grandmother of six. She has also mentored over 100+ new Canadian women for Newcomer Employment Services Toronto (NEST). Diana’s passion for natural healing methods led her to study and write training manuals on skincare, aromatherapy, and massage therapy. She firmly believes in growing older gracefully and serves as an example of the benefits of these practices.
Diana’s expertise and accomplishments have garnered media attention, and she has been interviewed on radio and podcasts. She is also a published author. Through her diverse experiences and achievements, Diana Francis continues to inspire others to pursue their passions and live their best lives. Her dedication to helping others achieve their goals is evident in everything she does, and she looks forward to continuing to make a positive impact on those around her.
