K. Diane Losavio, Executive Director

Diane spent five of her elementary school years in Baton Rouge and has since then considered it her home, even though her family moved severaltimes before she returned in the 70’s. She has had a diverse work history, both in business and the non-profit world, giving her the needed experience in administration, supervision, and non-profit management to take on the position of executive director for Baton Rouge Green in 2007.

"The future of Baton Rouge Green is important to me because this city is my home.  The first thing you notice about Baton Rouge, when returning from a trip elsewhere, is our magnificent trees. It's the responsibility of all our residents to care for this urban forest and of Baton Rouge Green to demonstrate how it should be done."


Diane is married and has two daughters, two sons-in-law, and four grandchildren.
