Diana (she/her) helps lead narrative strategy for CCI and writes about innovations to improve health care.

Before CCI, Diana worked as a science writer at the Center for Youth Wellness, whose mission is to help children heal from the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). An award-winning journalist, she has served as a senior editor at Time Inc., as a writer and news editor at the Center for Investigative Reporting, and as the long-time editor in chief of a health and medical startup. She was a senior fellow at the Center for Health Journalism and has covered health, science, and finance for Forbes, PBS Frontline, The Washington Post, UC Berkeley’s Energy Biosciences Institute, and other outlets.

Diana logged several years of lab science in college and taught rats how to play soccer using operant conditioning. She received her bachelor’s degree in English literature from the University of California at Santa Cruz (go banana slugs!) and a master’s degree in sustainable food systems from Green Mountain College. In her spare time she enjoys salsa dancing, reading Harry Potter with the kids, and spending time with her friends and family here, in Georgia, and overseas.
