Diana is a fountain of inspiration, a treasure trove of support. Diana see’s you, she listens with her whole heart, and she meets you wherever you are, and guides you into the boundless worlds of story. I'm so thankful to be a part of the Imagined Life family. "

"Diana was instrumental in helping me bring poetry to my work. She lead me to develop the spirit and mindset of a creator. To design my life around my vocation. But most importantly, she gave me the tools to help me locate where I was small. Where I was hiding. My dark areas that I didn’t want people to see. She taught me to not hide from that darkness, but rather to embrace it as an aspect of my own complexity, my full humanity, a doorway into my own vulnerability. This practice of authenticity has not only grown my empathy through my art, but it has also widened me as a human being living my life. I am forever in gratitude."
