Diana grew up in Utah and moved to Washington state over 14 years ago where she is now raising her family. She focused her high school and college years around childcare and education and has spent countless hours volunteering in elementary schools, nannying, tutoring and lesson planning.

Being a witness to some patients literally learning to see the world in a different way has been an honor for her.
