She has been married for 27 years and is the mother of two young adults. Diana has been receiving instruction and training under Leslie Vernick since January 2016.

In her spare time, Diana enjoys walking her dog, kayaking, reading books that inspire and occasional trips to the beach during Ohio winters.
Elise is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Coach working primarily with women who are struggling in difficult and destructive relationships. Elise understands women often suffer in silence and isolation when living with a spouse who is abusive while looking like Mr. Wonderful to everyone else. As a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, Elise loves the integration of Scripture with the real and present challenges of life, especially marriage. In 2015, Elise began her work with Leslie in the professional mentoring/supervision group EQUIP. It was Leslie’s teaching and supervision that has further prepared Elise to counsel and coach women to be able to steward their life well with clarity, purpose, and direction, and to be the best version of themselves in the midst of very difficult and destructive relationships. When Elise is not working she enjoys spending time with her husband of 39 years. She also loves playing tennis and visiting the lake and beach with her grown children. Best of all she loves spending time with the next generation of strong, brave, and beautiful little women in her life… her three granddaughters!
