Diane’s specialization in Neuroscience gives her a unique background in the treatment and rehabilitation in concussion and sport-related musculoskeletal injuries. She works with elite athletes in their concussion recovery where her primary rehabilitation strategies focus on neurometabolism, nutrition, and vestibular-ocular motor screening.
Diane is very passionate about the brain-gut axis and the effects on sport performance. She has researched the strong evidence for the role of the commensal gut microbiota in brain function and behavior. Diane loves sports, so she is always eager and excited to investigate the bidirectional communication between the gut microbiota and the brain.
Her specialized areas of teaching include: Anatomy & Physiology, Gross Anatomy, Prevention and Care of Athletic Injuries, Clinical Evaluation of Musculoskeletal Injures, Sport Nutrition, and Athletic Therapy.
She is incredibly excited to be teaching at CSNN and hopes her personal and professional experience will provide students with many opportunities to be excellent in their practice and every day lives.
