Diana Sanchez-Vega (aka Diana Holland) was born in Argentina and raised in a cross-cultural English and Spanish environment, where she worked as a cultural and language instructor for over 12 years. In addition, her expertise as an event producer and PR strategist was formed and she developed a reputation as a woman who could create important and fun communication events and happenings.
Diana holds a Master of Arts in Psychological Studies, having previously completed her Bachelor’s of Science in International Business in Argentina. She is fluent in Spanish and English, and versed in Portuguese and French.
In December of 1999, Diana moved to the US and worked as a Community Liaison for the Consulate of Argentina in Atlanta.
In Nashville since December 2001, she worked for The Tennessean, prior to establishing her cross-cultural communications business, where she makes bright connections happen by connecting products, services and initiatives with their intended audiences. Diana has a passion for facilitating communication and for contributing to the wellbeing of all those that cross her path. She defines her core skill as weaving communities together, a trait she has honed as a corporate cross-cultural trainer and community dialogue circle facilitator for more than 15 years, both in Nashville and in Los Angeles.
A twice nationally Spanish Certified Medical Interpreter (CMI and CHITM), Diana has interpreted in healthcare since 2007, and regularly trains beginner, intermediate and advanced medical interpreters, as well as other members of healthcare teams. A natural leader, Diana brings to every venture her business savvy and expertise as a bridge-builder and a business developer.
Additionally, in 2019, Diana launched her Nashville Spanish radio talk show Sanos, sabios y prósperos (Healthy, wise and prosperous). A long-time dream of Diana’s, the mission of this radios show is to educate and inform the Spanish-speaking community about health, wellness and prosperity. The show runs every Friday, from 10 to 11 am in Radio Luz Nashville 900 AM.
Since moving to the US, Diana has been an active volunteer of the communities she has lived in. She was unanimously voted Executive Vice President for the Atlanta Junior Chamber of Commerce, and earned several chapter awards. When Diana moved to Nashville in 2001, she immersed herself in the local community, holding office on the boards and advisory councils of several nonprofit organizations and government agencies in the Nashville area. Memorably, Diana set up and ran the impactful and engaging arts nonprofit Tango Nashville, an initiative for which she received Nashville Business Journal’s prestigious Women of Influence Nonprofit Leadership award in 2007.
When not making bright connections happen, Diana enjoys meditative coloring, planter gardening, and going out on the town with friends to discover the wonders of the eclectic Nashville, her home in the US.
