Diana's trigger for an interest in biology started when she was five years old, when her dad had arrived from an oceanographic cruise with a stuffed dolphin as a souvenir. Her family was always the doorway to nature, from camping on the beaches along the Pacific Mexican coastline to hiking in the Sierra Madre Occidental. At each vacation season, her family would pack up for an adventure in a little pick-up truck, visiting most of the states in Mexico. This sparked her career studying grey whales and humpback whales in Baja California Sur, being a marine fauna observer off Tampico, following orcas off British Columbia and ecotourism in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco.
When she's not guiding, travel is Diana's passion, particularly discovering small streets and unusual places. You'll find her on long walks with her dog, reading on the beach, swimming, riding her bike, salsa dancing and drawing wildlife.
