Her experience of playing flag football began as a young child playing with the boys in the streets of Brooklyn, NY. Even from a young age she saw the lack of importance that our society gave for girls playing sports. As an adult she leveraged that experience to make change in the world.
Diane founded the International Women’s Flag Football Association in 1997 to help organize the sport as well as spread women’s flag football to other regions of the world.
