Diana is Mom of two beautiful girls and has been married to her best friend of 4 years. Two under two is tough but never boring! She loves spending time with her little family, crafting, and reading. She recently quit her day job to accomplish a mission in spreading PPD and suicide awareness by sharing other mothers stories on her podcast called, Always With Me. Although she has experienced a tragedy, she has found joy and has never been happier. Life is so short and we must choose to live every single day!
