At the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Diane discovered a research center on campus and, as a student consultant, she worked with a range of local Philadelphia entrepreneurs, writing business plans and providing strategic counsel.

For the last 20 years, she has helped over 200 entrepreneurs start their business by pulling from the same skills she developed during her days at Wharton and her run through corporate America.
