She served as the Office Manager for MMR from 1979 until 1985. While working for the trade magazine, she met her husband, Martin Johnson, who had been the editor for a competing trade publication, Piano Trades Magazine (PTM). After leaving PTM, Martin formed Publishing Dynamics for which Diane would later serve as CFO and as President before the publishing firm was sold in 1995 at which point the couple retired.
