Diana Drake is a journalist who has been connecting with nature since floating her Barbies down the creek behind her childhood home in Somerset County. After graduating from Skidmore College, Diana felt certain she was destined for a life of new adventures in faraway places…until that cute boy in a baseball uniform kept showing up at her waitressing job at the local Rocky Hill Inn, where she was earning extra cash to supplement her budding journalism career at a N.J. newspaper. While she has long since retired her black-and-whites, she kept the guy. A few decades later, they live across from a 235-acre horse-breeding farm in Pennington with their daughter, 14 and son, 4. Yes, 10 years, and yes, it keeps you young. Diana has run a successful freelance writing and editing business, Drake Ink, since 2001, publishing articles, newsletters and supplements for the likes of NJBIZ, The New York Times New Jersey section, New Jersey Monthly and The Trenton Times. She is currently managing editor of Knowledge@Wharton High School, an online portal published by The Wharton School, U of Penn that promotes finance, business, entrepreneurship and leadership for high school students and educators.
