Like most Pacific Northwest residents, Diane is a sucker for the fall because it means all of her favorite things – football season, sweaters and boots!

Prior to becoming one of Portland’s best waxers, she was a schoolteacher and has her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Oregon State University – go BEAVS! Diane enjoys playing tennis, boxing, golfing and traveling to warm places with her three kiddos.

Cody’s favorite things are brunch and happy hour, and she also loves going to the drive in for movie time (as long as they aren’t scary).
