Dianne Pittarese began work at ETSU in the fall of 2011 as an Executive Aide in the Department of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology. In January 2013, she became the Office Coordinator for the College of Clinical and Rehabilitative Health Sciences.
Dianne has a B.S. in Home Economics and an M.S. in Elementary Education from Pensacola Christian College. Prior to her work at ETSU, Dianne spent 14 years as an elementary schoolteacher at a private Christian school and 3 years as a curriculum and textbook editor for an academic publishing company. She credits both of these jobs with giving her the multi-tasking, communication, and organization skills needed to handle the diverse work of a busy ETSU college office.
Dianne and her husband Tony, who is an associate professor in the Department of Computing, moved to Johnson City in 2007 from Pensacola, Florida. They love being part of the Johnson City community and ETSU. Dianne is originally from Colorado and is very happy to be back in the mountains. The aspects of her work for the university that she values most are helping make the jobs of other people in her college easier and helping students efficiently navigate life at ETSU.
