Diane is in her 6th year in the program after earning both her MA and BA from FIU while working in the IT division of the McClatchy Company, the corporate owner of The Miami Herald. Diane has been teaching US Federal Government and Social Environment at Miami-Dade College in Kendall since 2015.

Diane's dissertation topic is economic development on US Native American reservations. She believes that there is not enough knowledge in this area for public administration and the lack of knowledge contributes to deficiencies in inter-government activities.
