Diane Dusick received her Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from the University of Southern California in 1999 and has been teaching in graduate and doctoral programs ever since. She began teaching television and film production in 1989 at San Bernardino Valley College, where she taught in the classroom, studio, and online until 2018. Social change is important to her, particularly in the area of animal rescue. Over the past 25 years, she has rescued over 100 dogs/puppies, kittens/cats, chickens, and horses. Currently she has three therapy dogs and a horse. Her favorite charity is the Pegasus Foundation, which rescues race horses. One of her dogs, a rescue poodle named Remington, goes to a local mental health clinic as a therapy dog once or twice a week. He was the only dog used at the San Bernardino shooting to help survivors cope with the trauma. During the COVID-19 pandemic, her family makes 50 meals a week for a local food bank.
