She began her professional career in Northern Virginia as an editor in the book publishing industry before transitioning to technical writing for a large real estate company. In 2006, she and her husband moved to Huntsville, Alabama, where she spent seven years as a freelance writer, editor, and publications manager before joining UAH as an academic writer/editor for the Office of Marketing & Communications (OMC). Since 2016, she has served as the Director of Admissions Communications while continuing to write and edit for the OMC.

She is also active in her community, regularly participating in charity 5Ks and teaching a weekly ESL class at a local church.

“Diana LaChance intuitively understood how to improve my book manuscript without altering the scope of my scholarship or changing my voice as an author. Her ability to grasp content, structure, and composition strengthened my work, giving me a heightened sense of confidence when I submitted my manuscript to an academic press. While Diana provided clear and concise comments that pulled no punches, she also became an encourager and a friend. I would recommend her to any author looking for a good editor who cares about her work and her clients.” – Dr. John F. Kvach, Associate Professor of History, University of Alabama in Huntsville
