Founder, Your Home Watch Professionals Training and Resources - visit website

Diane is leading the way in the world of home watch. It is, currently, an unregulated industry with little barrier to entry. Home Watch providers are often untrained and uninsured. This inexperience, and lack knowledge, frequently results in damage that could have been avoided if detected in the early stages.

She is dedicated to helping Seasonal Residents know what to expect and how to hire home watch providers. There is a huge demand for quality home watch services so Diane knew the path, to helping the most people, would be by growing new home watch companies.

Diane has been training individuals, and helping them launch home watch businesses, since 2008. The Home Watch Training Program is an intense training for talented individuals who are serious about providing services that are second to none.

Diane is a true entrepreneur and has been a business owner since 1986. She co-owns a thriving home watch company, offers training locally and on-site to companies with home watch divisions, as well as webinars, custom programs and individual coaching. She leads an affiliate team of independently owned home watch business owners who are trained, tested, and trusted.

General Manager, Aquatic Systems - visit website

As a lake and pond management company in the state of Florida, Aquatic Systems works for and is committed to the restoration and maintenance of both naturally occurring freshwater lakes and ponds and man-made storm water/pollution retention ponds. Our water management plans seek to reduce herbicide use wherever possible and instead rely on natural control methods to provide our customers with the water quality, aesthetics and fisheries they expect.

Some of Auquatic Systems recent accomplishments include:

Development of Micro-LyfeTM , a beneficial bacteria for naturally improving water quality and reducing biological oxygen demand and bottom muck. ~ Installation of Vertex bottom aeration systems to naturally reduce algae, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide gases, phosphorus and nitrogen nutrient levels thereby reducing chemical applications while improving water quality, aesthetics and fisheries. ~ Perpetual grass carp stocking program to naturally control Hydrilla and other submersed aquatic weeds without use of chemical herbicides. ~ Lake dye applications to reduce weed and algae growth by blocking sunlight to bottom growing surfaces. ~ Introduction of Vertex ultrasonic transmitters to control algae by cell disruption without the use of chemical algaecides. ~ Carbon footprint reduction; ASI is currently building out a fleet of e-boats, the lake management industries’ first all-electric battery powered and battery propelled spray boats eliminating noise, gasoline and oil pollution to the aquatic environment.

Aquatic Systems will work to ensure that Florida’s lakes remain healthy both today, and for future generations.
