Diana says the decision to be an Extension educator came after doing an internship at the Oklahoma County Extension office and learning about what Extension is about. She loved the fact that an FCS educator can reach so many people with different programs to enrich their lives.

She also partners with Buy for Less to do market tours in Spanish. Diana is a certified Arthritis Foundation Land Exercise Program as an instructor, she teaches this program at different senior centers around the county.
Diana earned her BS in Nutrition and Dietetics at the Pontifician Xaverian University in her native Colombia. There she worked 8 years as a Registered Dietitian in a clinical setting before moving to Oklahoma to pursue a Masters of Science degree in Nutritional Sciences from OSU.
