    Raised in Los Angeles and New Orleans, Ms. Diamond moved to the Netherlands in 1985 where she completed studies in aerospace engineering, English and mathematics. Her youth in New Orleans and Los Angeles, as well as spending the majority of her adult life in the Netherlands, instilled in her a dedication to public service.
