Profile: Diana Luke: Diana is a Canadian who has been living in Britain for over 25 years.  However, she is frequently asked whether she is on holiday, what part of the United States she is from, whether she is Irish and is also regularly admired for her accent.  She thinks that some of her ancestors from County Cork join her when she has a drink because the Irish intonation seems to be more prevalent then.

Her eclectic career began in health when she studied Nursing but left when she realised that bed pans and injections were considered more important than saying "How ya doin?'" She then went to train as a Health and Fitness Adviser, then left for England.  She worked in Adult Education as a  Lecturer in Health Education and also ran groups and saw patients in three general practices.   Her innovative work was filmed for Channel Four's Wellbeing Series and on Yorkshire TV.

Her first acting role came in a BBC2 programme where she played a TV show host.  Then came the lucky fluke of being in the right place at the right time.  She was asked to take part in a 'round table' discussion on 'love and sex' at Hallam FM - her provocative statements got her her first radio job at Viking Radio in Hull as their first female presenter.

Her career than took her down to London for many new beginnings including work at the BBC and Jazz FM.  She has now come full circle for "quality of life" back to Sheffield.  A few years ago, she trained as a professional Hypno-Psychotherapist and works with clients on self-confidence issues, relationship problems, stress management etc.  She also does Tarot readings for private clients and even managed an evening of Tarot for up to 200 people in London.

She is the mother of four grown up children who are great friends and lives with her youngest daughter, her radio star dog Brandy and Tia, her cat.  In her spare time, she enjoys walking in the beautiful countryside surrounding Sheffield, visiting country pubs, reading a good novel or a self-awareness book, chatting with friends and listening to music - loudly!  She has begun writing two novels and hopes to finish them one day!

For those in the know, she is a Cancerian Water Snake with a Life Path of 4!
