She made her stage debut in tap at the age of four in N.Y.C. (1955) performing "Anchor's Aweigh" with Tanya and Walter's Dance Studio troupe from Middle Village Queens, N.Y. Her mother, Doris Louise Slack had been a major in costume design, and created the wardrobe for all of their performances. Her father, Lawrence Otto Young, a small refrigeration corporation owner, enrolled her at Our Savior Lutheran School in Queens, NY. at the age of six. He insisted she give up formal dance lessons to pursue academics, religion and sports. Immediately, Diane got involved with school plays and once again, her mother did the costumes. By five, Diane and her two sisters Barbara and Patricia already had begun to stage shows. They collaborated makeup and costume design, also creating settings that were very entertaining and lots of fun for family and friends to watch. They created scripts and rehearsed dance and song routines, and the audience clapped. Diane (alto)was the lead singer, while Barbara and Patricia (soprano) sang backup, much like the Supremes, The Ronettes, and The Four Seasons.
Her mother was also an amateur photographer and fine artist, which led to Diane's interest in modeling. She signed her first contract with Foster-Fell Agency in N.Y.C., in 1978. Immediately, she was subcontracted by Miyama International in Tokyo and Universal in Paris.

Afterwards, she entered the music industry as a singer-songwriter, and landed a contract with Next Plateau Records (1988)where she released an EP entitled, "Call On Me" (You Tube).
In 1995, she returned to college and became a secondary E.S.L. teacher(NY)having had acquired several languages in the twenty-eight countries she has visited. Currently, she lives in San Antonio where she truly feels at home in the film industry with her husband, Artie Mozzone, who is also an actor.
