Current and Past Occupation
Past: Nanny for Adam Chandler III
Di first surfaced in the correctional institution where Krystal Carey was serving her sentence for her hand in kidnapping Bianca Montgomery's baby. Di was there for failure to cooperate with the grand jury.
One of Kystal's visitors, Dr. David Hayward, was struck by how much Di resembled his past love, now presumed dead, and upon Di's release, David struck a bargain with her to impersonate Dixie, hoping Di could persuade Dixie's son, JR Chandler, to allow David's daughter, Babe, to share custody of their child. Di promptly went to the Chandler mansion and applied for the little boy's nanny position, and was hired
Di ingratiated herself into JR's life and also became romantically involved with Tad Martin. Neither of the men could explain the familiar attraction they felt for the woman, and when David started dropping hints that she might be Dixie, Tad confronted Di and she lied and said that she was. Fingerprints and DNA tests manipulated by Dr. Hayward, confirmed her false admission, and Tad fell in love with Dixie all over again.
When Del Henry came to town and discovered his other half-sister masquerading as the one presumed dead, he agreed to keep her secret. Di was successful until Julia Santos and Noah Keefer were followed to Pine Valley by Garret Williams, also known as The Dragon. He was the man who caused Di to serve time because of her fear that he would kill her if she testified against him. Having to help Julia get the man after he killed Noah, blew Di's story apart.
When Di was exposed as a fake, she still loved Tad, and although he eventually forgave her and understood what drove her to the lie, their planned marriage fell by the wayside. Di's pain was soothed by her friendship with Aidan Devane, who was also reeling from a failed relationship. The real Dixie's search for her missing daughter, Emma, brought Dixie Cooney Martin back from the dead, and Di is determined to help her half-sister and Tad find the child that the devious and now dead, Dr. Greg Madden, stole from them.
Di began a relationship with Aidan Devane but when it became clear that the relationship was going nowhere, Di left town to take a job in New York.
Annie lured her back to Pine Valley, explaining that she needed Di to care for Emma so that she and Ryan could have some time alone to heal their marriage. Di became Annie's dupe in the kidnapping plot.
