She began playing full-time on the AVP tour in 2001 capturing her first tournament win in the Santa Barbara Open and a Bronze medal finish in Brazil, on the FIVB World Tour with Liz Masakayan. Her second win came in 2009 in Coney Island, New York with Carrie Dodd. In 2010, she and her partner, Brittany Hochevar, competed in the finals in Santa Barbara. She has consistently been ranked among the top 8 players on the AVP in hitting percentage and blocks throughout her career.

Dianne brings her experience as a player along with her excitement for the game to her coaching of young players. Dianne has coached 3 seasons at COAST, 12U and 13’s. She has high school JV and Varsity coaching experience along with coaching many volleyball camps and clinic over the years both indoor and on the beach.

She believes working with players on proper technique and having fun while they’re at it. Volleyball is a difficult sport, which requires many repetitions to learn and improve each skill. Also, she believes in teaching the players to be patient and persistent in practice and competition. Dianne believes strong practices and preparation give the players and the team as a whole much more confidence in competition.
