Diana has entertained over a million people live and on television. A survivor of PTSD, when diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 came as no surprise. However, resilience is one of Diana’s many gifts. She came to realize that by making people laugh, she could help them deal with life’s stresses, motivate them, and teach them what she has learned over the past 30 years about how great laughter is in nourishing yourself and changing your outlook on life and your life.
A trauma survivor on many levels, including a fall from a balance-beam at 13 that kept her from qualifying for Olympic try-outs, a long bout with Mono, a sick parent, two sick parents & caring for a younger sibling. A preventative cancer surgery on her jaw that left her unable to laugh or smile for 2 years was when she knew for sure how healing laughter was. She was miserable. As her smile and laugh came back, so did her spark and she hasn’t stopped since! Diana is a true survivor. Her resilience is as contagious as her attitude and humor!
Growing up in a small air-force town in Oklahoma, Diana began her career as a country singer. She could lose herself in the music. Be somebody else. Touring the U.S., she ended up where she had dreamed about- California! It was here that she began her career in acting, writing, and stand-up comedy. She was accepted into a prestigious comedy class that included an unknown, Robin Williams. ‘He taught me about courage.” Diana believes it takes real courage to not only succeed in business but in your personal life as well.
