Dianna Wagner

Health Program Specialist II, California Department of Social Services

In the last 23-years Dianna has passionately worked for foster youth in California. She spent the first 16 years working directly with foster youth from various counties in California, providing them therapeutic services within an RCL 13-14. She then directed her focus to work in a county HHSA system in order to provide therapeutic services to those in her community at a Perinatal Substance Use Program. After a short time, she took a director position over both child welfare and children's mental health. It was in these roles that she witnessed the impact that adversity in childhood had on the health and wellbeing of young people and their parents. Now Dianna brings her experience and training of trauma informed work to the team at CDSS.
