In 1974 I came to the United Stated from England. While here, I married an American serviceman and had two magnificent sons. I spent my career in banking for 40 years and retired in 2015. I was introduced to Unity by my wonderful friend, Diane. Although I am a newcomer to Unity of Southeast Texas, I am honored to be a member of the Board of Trustee and I am eager to learn and grow with the Unity family by attending classes and workshops offered.

Diane Pontious, Secretary

Diane’s work experience includes office administration and sales associate for a kitchen and bath showroom. She is currently a buyer for HVAC supplies at Coburn’s Supply corporate office in Beaumont, TX, serving 35 distributor locations. Diane has been married to her husband Steve since 2007. She shares a step-daughter and step-granddaughter with Steve.

She grew up attending Catholic schools in Beaumont. She was a member of St. Anthony Catholic Church (Basilica) for many years. However, she found traditional religious dogma a less fulfilling way to attain a deeper spiritual experience.

Diane was invited to join Unity of Southeast Texas one year ago. Finding a New Thought church offers her a clearer path to expanding spiritual consciousness. Currently, she serves as a Prayer Chaplain, and was recently elected to the Board of Trustees of Unity of Southeast Texas. Being on the Board of Trustees is an opportunity to help grow the church, grow spiritually, and be of service to the community.

Diane is a member of the Meta Spiritual Society – East Texas and the Beaumont Historical Society. Her interests include Tai Chi, reading, art, and historical renovation. Animals are a big part of Diane’s life. She enjoys fostering cats and kittens through Beaumont Pet’s Alive.
