Diane has over 30 years in the Cosmetology Career Education field and prior to that owned several full service salons. Diane’s passion in training students and helping them achieve success is her greatest satisfaction. She is also a licensed instructor in Cosmetology, Spa Nail Technology and Esthetics in the State of New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts. She opened the first learning center, School of Nail Design, Inc., with her husband William in 1994 in Salem NH and opened additional campuses in Portsmouth, Bedford and Nashua and in recent years added Esthetics and Massage Therapy programs. After much hard work Diane and her family and devoted staff members achieved the school’s accreditation in 2009 with the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences and worked on the approval of the Federal Department of Education granted that same year.
