Diane is a dynamic speaker who is passionate about sharing her knowledge and experience. She loves to ignite a group with ideas, exercises, theory, and stories and then witness the understanding and awareness switch on.
She combines what she’s learned raising a nonverbal child with autism with her training as a mind-body and equus coach to offer a range of topics. Diane’s unique background enables her to connect with a wide range of audiences.
Prior to raising a family with two boys, she held several sales and marketing positions in the high tech industry where she created and delivered presentations for teams of engineers, managers and executives. She earned a degree in Computer Science and she lived and worked overseas in Sydney, Australia for four years before starting a family.

I was moved by Diane Hunter’s presentation “Beyond Words.” Her calm, clear and inspiring words to parents and professionals allow us all to embrace the challenges of either having a child with Autism or teaching a child with Autism in an accepting and honoring manner.
Diane’s experience implementing the work in her own life with her son, that she uses in her coaching practice, establishes her credibility and gives hope to us all. I encourage parents to reach out to Diane for guidance. I urge schools and parent support groups to consider bringing Diane in to offer workshops and training.
