Diana serves as the Assistant Director of New Student Programs in VPUE's Academic Advising. In her role, she is responsible for implementing the Approaching Stanford program, which provides support to first-year and transfer students as they transition to undergraduate life at Stanford. Being one of the first points of contact for these incoming students, Diana is focused on making sure they feel well-equipped to begin their academic experience at the university. Working alongside her New Student Programs team, Diana also supports the implementation of New Student Orientation for incoming students each fall.
Prior to Stanford, Diana worked in the non-profit sector after receiving a Sociology degree from Bethel University, a small liberal arts college in St. Paul, Minnesota. Outside of her organizational development work, Diana's passion for higher education grew as she coached women's lacrosse for Bethel's club team.
