Diana is originally from Eastern Washington where she also attended Heritage University with a major in Psychology.

Before working with the Benefits Hub, Diana worked as a financial counselor for a hospital.

Diana was motivated to become a financial counselor at Sound Outreach because this position allowed her to connect directly with students and people in the community. Financial literacy is a topic that she is very passionate about and she believes it is a tool that can empower a person for a lifetime.

A piece of advice for South students would be to have good time management skills, while still allowing yourself to be curious and explore new things and ideas!

In her free time, Diana likes to go on walks, hike and look at fruits and plants.
