Volunteer of the Month June 2015


Congratulations to Diana Plotkin our Volunteer of the Month for June!

Once a month on a Wednesday, the adult residents at Hillcrest Villas are lucky to have  volunteer, Diana Plotkin, grace them with her presence as she teaches the art of meditation – the art of techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. She has been volunteering with Many Mansions for 8 months. She has studied Meditation for about 4 and 1/2 years with several renown teachers in the area. Meditation is her passion!

She is described by others as a Renaissance woman: she’s a great cook, has a green-thumb, has an artistic flair, she’s very smart, she can do almost anything, and if she doesn’t know how to do something (but wants to), she learns how! Diana is kind-hearted and compassionate: in addition to volunteering at Many Mansions she volunteers at a Food Pantry in Woodland Hills and works as Real Estate Broker/ Asset Manager consulting for a company in Brentwood.

What Diana finds special about Many Mansions is how generous and supportive the residents are to each other.  She tells the people she meets that Many Mansions has an unbelievable program with support for the resident at all levels.  She has never seen any other organization that does all that Many Mansions  does!  She looks forward to continuing to teach Meditation and to bring in more and more residents to her classes!
