In Summer 2019, Diana made it to the semi-finals as a first-time competitor in the Twin Cities Amateur Comedy Contest at Acme, and is proud to say she's between the 6th and 25th funniest amateur comedian in the Twin Cities. A short film she is a lead in was the winner of the Film Score Festival last summer. Watch the behind the scenes video here, and look for Snack Table at upcoming film festivals.

She was proud to participate in spring 2019 as an actor in Market Garden Theatre's Fresh Roots Series, an initiative committed to premiering new works by local playwrights. In the Fall of 2019, she made her Prime Productions debut in their reading of Waiting in the Wings.

Last Christmas, Diana took part in Yellow Tree Theater's holiday show, Miracle on Christmas Lake. Read a review here. She wrapped two films in 2018; a feature length in which she is a supporting actor is due on AmazonPrime in the fall, and a short, in which she is a lead, premiered in October. She's appearing regularly in commercials on Fox Sports North, and during the 2018 Olympics, was in a Comcast commercial. On her native east coast, she was in Table for Three which won its division at the Cannes Film Festival. For more film credits, see her IMDB, check out this fun commercial, or take a look at a hysterical short she's in from Comedy Fiends.

In 2017, she performed in the Orchard Theater Collective's A Doll's House, as Elizabeth in Taking Steps, Constance in The Three Musketeers at Theatre in the Round, and various roles in Paul Bunyan Playhouse's Almost, Maine

In the world of voiceover, Diana is on the airwaves nationally, lending her voice to several major corporations including Walmart, Coursera, Health Partners, DelMonte, and Hyvee, as well as regional organizations on Spotify, Pandora, and iHeartRadio networks. 

An avid theater educator, she has directed and choreographed Fiddler on the Roof, Peter Pan, Shrek, The Wizard of Oz, Seussical, Cinderella, The Music Man, ​Once Upon a Mattress, and Steve Martin's WASP for students in the MSP and Washington DC metro areas. She's assistant directed Craig Johnson on Torch Theater's ​Boeing Boeing and Michael Bigelow Dixon's Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure. Diana is SAG-must-join, and is represented in film, print, and voiceover exclusively by Moore Creative Talent

She loves music, dancing, competitive and recreational swimming, painting, cooking, comedies, and tea.
