About Dianne

I was born and raised in Fresno, California. I moved with my mother, brother and sister to Colorado in 1969. That same year I married Steven Bailey. Daughter, Terrie, was born at the end of that year. In 1971, Steve and I divorced and I went to work for Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph Company. In 1982, I moved to New Jersey with Terrie to work for Bell Laboratories. In 1992, I married Ray Nyce. In 1994, I earned a Bachelors degree from Rutgers University in New Jersey. After that, I earned two Masters degrees, one from Northern Arizona University and one from the University of Colorado, Denver. I have traveled to all continents expect Australia and Africa. Ray and I have lived in Parker, Colorado, since 1999.

County Government
I was appointed to the position of Douglas County Public Trustee in 2007 and served under Governor Ritter until his term ended in 2011. This position taught me the ins-and-outs of running a small business enterprise.

COMMUNITY SERVICE SINCE 1999

Town of Parker: I was appointed to serve on the Parker Planning Commission from June 2001 to July 2005. I also participated on several Citizen Task Force projects including the Salisbury Equestrian Park plans, Strategic Plan for Downtown Parker, development of the Town of Parker Greater Downtown District Standards and Guidelines, and more recently, plans for the corner at Mainstreet and Pine Drive.

 



American Association of University Women (AAUW): I have been a member of Douglas County Branch of the AAUW since 2002. The AAUW serves the community with scholarship programs for young women and performs other community services such as women health fairs and fund raising for the national association. Branch members also support the local Task Force and other community service organizations.

HOA Service: I have served on the Canterberry Crossing Derby Hill sub-association board in one capacity or another since 1999. I was the sub-association Vice Chair and event planner for many years. I also was the writer/editor for our sub association newsletter. The Master Association asked me to expand the newsletter to include all of Canterberry Crossing. So from Winter 2000 to Spring 2005 I wrote the quarterly newsletter for the entire community. I was innovative in providing a free business card ad service for neighbors. I chose to be the HOA event planner because I wanted to bring the true small town feel of Parker to my association. My favorite events are the Community Garage Sale and the Spring Fling Easter Parade and Egg Hunt. Currently, I serve as Derby Hill Delegate to the Master Association Board.
