Diane holds the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation, the highest certification for a speaking professional, earned by less than 10% of the professional speakers in the world.
As an emergency room nurse for over 20 years, I have seen it all. The 40-year-old executive who fell asleep at the wheel because she was too tired. The electrician with 80 percent of his body burned because he got too distracted. The young mother of four who ignored the lump in her breast the size of a grapefruit!
So many of the patients I treated had one common denominator—they were trying to do too much, too fast, too often. All were living in chaos!
Although I literally put people back together in the ER, I have always been more interested in empowering people to breakthrough and take care of themselves before they break down. As a professional speaker since 1996, I have spoken to thousands of men and women in health care, sales, banking and women’s conferences. I have also been involved in the health and fitness field for over 20 years, as a lifesaving coach, seminar leader, personal trainer, and fitness instructor teaching everything from kick-boxing to my current passion, yoga.
I wrote my first book, STOP Living Life Like an Emergency, because I wanted to illustrate how so many of us were living in such a frenetic state of more, better, faster. While I was very close to this material as a nurse and as your typical overachiever, in recent years life events have allowed me to go deeper with my personal journey. My most recent work focuses on teaching people how to move from chaos to calm by increasing their awareness and setting their intentions with a daily practice.
My professional memberships include the National Speakers Association, National Speakers Association-Colorado, Colorado Author’s League, American Association of Lifestyle Counselors and the Sigma Theta Tau Honorary Nursing Organization. I am grateful to be so well-connected with the professional relationships and personal support that have made writing Voice Lessons possible.
I have lived in Colorado for the past 20 years and can’t imagine living anywhere else since I love to be outside as much as I can. I have two nephews who I adore and still consider “my boys” even though they are 18 and 20 and wear size 15 shoes! I stay sane and active with yoga, gardening, hiking, and biking.
