AStep Ahead Adoption Services, LLC was founded by Diane Hogan in 1999 in North Carolina. The business plan offers several independent consultants throughout the country who are available to help our clients with their own adoption journey.
Diane holds MA & BS degrees in education and has spent over 20 years in the greater adoption community as an educator and advocate. Prior to her adoption work, Diane worked as a classroom teacher, district administration and state administrator in public education. A volunteer for Junior Achievement, Diane believes in taking her dedication to education back to the classroom specifically helping special needs’ students. In addition, in 2015, Diane was appointed as a CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocate) for children in the El Paso County foster care system.
As a registered North Carolina LLC, A Step Ahead Adoption is now a member of the New Bern Chamber of Commerce, and the Coastal Women’s Forum.
