Diane Calello, #24878
Diane has seen camp through many lenses, first when visiting her future husband #14278 P.J., then almost 20 years later as Camp Doctor, and now as mother to camper #23878, Caroline and Max and Cosmo (Camp # TBD).
Since graduating from the College of William and Mary, Diane obtained her medical degree at the New Jersey Medical School (Rutgers University) and completed residency and fellowship training at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. A pediatric emergency physician and toxicologist, she is excited to bring her experience to the health and safety of campers, continuing the good work already being done on that front. As Executive and Medical Director of the New Jersey Poison Control Center, she has broad experience in management of non-profit organizations and multi-agency partnerships. She also serves on the Board of Directors for the American College of Medical Toxicology, the professional organization for her area of specialty nationwide.
Diane first came to Dudley in 1993 and it was “love at first sight.” She said, “The caliber of people, and the friendships between them, were exceptional. This was no ordinary place.” She now senses the power of both Dudley and Kiniya to shape the leaders of tomorrow. She is excited to lend her expertise and enthusiasm to an organization in which she has “tremendous faith and to provide a safe and nurturing space for the development of intellect, values, self-confidence, self-discovery, and healthy lifelong relationships.”
