Diana's passion in patient care motivated her to pursue her education further.

Diana then began working for the Torrance Memorial Physician Network as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Diana joined Dr. Gunn's practice in January 2017.
Outside of work, Diana enjoys watching football and hockey games, traveling, and spending time with her husband, Andrew, and her miniature schnauzer, Oliver. Diana's favorite trip was when she had the opportunity to visit Japan; be sure to ask what her favorite meal was!
