Diane Retz, MPA


Diane, a TriWest Group consultant, earned her BA in Politics and English from Mount Holyoke College and her MPA from the University of Colorado – Denver. She has over a decade of experience in management and leadership in both the private and nonprofit spheres.

Much of her prior experience was in early childhood education and development. Diane believes in practices and policies promoting equity, and her work supports these efforts. Most recently, she designed and executed an evaluation of a two-generation, school-based intervention model for teenage mothers and their young children. Her findings added to the growing body of data suggesting these programs are efficient, effective, and equitable. Diane continues to combine context, data, and nuance into evidence-based practices to best serve populations and communities.

Diane lives in Denver with her husband, their rescue pets, and sometimes additional foster kittens. In her spare time, she enjoys origami, finding new stand-up comedy, and wordplay.
