Where I Want To Be

Diana Zimmerman grew up in Columbus, Ohio.  When she was 22 years old, she went to Hanson Island in British Columbia to help Paul Spong do research on Orcas at OrcaLab.  This is when she fell in love with the ocean and all of the creatures within it.  After returning home and since there was no oceans near Ohio, she decided to obtain a Veterinary Technician license at Columbus State University.  The reason was that she not only loved the creatures below the ocean but also above.  Around this same time is when she discovered a painter named Wayland.  She immediately fell in love with his work of ocean murals.
