All of Diana's extensive background as an actor & screenwriter is evident in the way she teaches. Her rich experience allows her to treat each student with an independent approach tailored to meet the most effective way each individual learns.
In addition, Diana truly cares about you, which allows you to safely open up to your own vulnerabilities & master over them.

Diana is kind, but she put's you through your paces. I have booked a lot of gigs after working with her. She helped me shape my college auditions too. I'm really so happy to recommend her.

One of the top teachers at SCR. I've always loved working with her.

My interaction with Diana is as an insightful and non- judgemental mentor for playwriting. I experienced her teaching in workshops at Breath of Fire- a writing cohort in Santa Ana. Her interactions with the students was inspiring as she created a safe space for students to express their creativity. Although I have not experienced her as an acting instructor, I can share Diana brings to the table a knowledge and respect for the art that I imagine would lend to a positive acting instructional experience.
