Dyana manages the education programs at Coastkeeper: the WHALES Program, Kids Ocean Day, Kids Care and DROPS. She works with students in class and out in the field, teaching them about watershed health, and how their actions have an impact on water quality. Her goal is to inspire the next generation of Coastkeepers.

Dyana is from Lynwood, CA where she helped establish a recycling program at her high school and participated in monthly beach cleanups. She graduated from UC Irvine with a dual B.A. in Urban Studies and Drama with an emphasis in Environmental Sustainability. Dyana loves dancing, volunteering at animal shelters, visiting her family (hi Mom!) and karaoke.
