She studied cooking at the HomeChef school in San Francisco and acting at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Pasadena.

Diane regularly appears onstage and in film, and teaches improvisation.

She’s been a member of the Omaha arts scene since returning to Omaha from California. She’s worked at the Omaha Symphony and currently serves as board president for the Great Plains Theatre Commons.
