Her experiences led her to recognizing how important it is to begin fostering health promotion during youth, to lay the foundation early on for making positive health choices. Diane embraced a career shift to dedicate her energies to inspiring and empowering young people to develop a healthy view of caring for their bodies and minds, for life. During her graduate program in Health Education, she became inspired to seek further training to prepare her to share yoga with children and teens, so that they might reach their full potential for happiness and well-being.
