Our Mission

Welcome to the ConservaTruth Association, where we are dedicated to upholding and safeguarding South Carolina conservative values in the realm of State and Local politics and governance. As a watchdog organization, our primary mission is to ensure that State and Local elected officials stay true to their commitment to conservative principles, including advocating for low to limited taxation, preserving personal freedoms, promoting a free marketplace, and advocating for limited government. Our Association strives to hold State and Local elected officials accountable and champion the values that our supporters believe in, fostering a stronger and more responsible government for the benefit of our society and economy. Together, as an Association, we stand united to protect the core conservative principles that shape our nation’s future and educate our members on current legislation that will impact the conservative values within our State and Local communities.

Diana moved to Charleston in 1994 as a young adult. She has raised three children in Dorchester County. Grace, her oldest, is now raising a family in Dorchester County with her husband Lloyd and baby, Henry. Diana’s twins, Katie Beth and Chipper, attend the University of South Carolina.

Diana has worked as a realtor since 2005. She made an exciting professional leap in 2017 by purchasing the first Realty ONE Group franchise in South Carolina. Now known as Realty ONE Group Coastal, Diana located her first office in Summerville. In only a few short years, Realty ONE Group Coastal has gone from Diana and her dream to three offices buzzing with more than 200 agents, plus support staff, property management, and HOA management.

Realty ONE Group is known for being a dynamic, full-service lifestyle real estate brand and franchise model, dedicated to empowering and advancing tomorrow’s real estate professionals today. One thing that is important to Diana is that life is more than just having a successful career, which is why she also serves her community in many ways.

She has worked with several local charities on different projects. She was a Guardian Ad Litem, working to protect children through family court in the Lowcountry. She currently is involved in the fight against child sex trafficking locally, nationally, and internationally. This gives Diana the opportunity to be a voice for children. She has always taught her three children to give back to their community.

Diana got involved in local politics in 2020. She helped organize a group to attend school board meetings in an effort to have masks removed from our children. That same group helped change the leadership of the Dorchester GOP by just a few votes. She has remained committed to helping make change and bring awareness to corruption that has taken over politics on all levels and in all parties.
