Program Director: Diane Ziegnerdiane_r
Diane came to Talkeetna in 1997 for a two week visit and simply forgot to leave. Now she can’t imagine living anywhere else! She is the founding director of the Alaska Folk School. When she’s not coordinating classes for the Alaska Folk School, you can find her teaching at her yoga at Studio Z Yoga, gardening in the summer, and cross country skiing during Talkeetna’s winter days.
