We all have hills we'll die on. Mine is that understanding behavior is vital to everything, whether it's in marketing, content creation, or human relationships.
Humans deserve to be understood.
Professionally, I'm a detailed oriented and data-driven marketer passionate about strategic initiatives and implementing behavioral science-based techniques. I've had success in delivering sustainable revenue and profit gains in competitive markets while leveraging my strong knack for quantitative measurement, data analysis, and enterprise resource planning, behavioral economic analysis, and content creation.
Personally, I'm an author who writes Non-Fiction about themes like imposter syndrome, fear, and neurohacking, and poetry about love and human connection. I'm also the founder and editor-in-chief of DORD Magazine, an online resource and monthly magazine devoted to destigmatizing the conversation around mental health by offering holistic dialogues based on neuroscience, psychology, economics, finance, lifestyle, culture, nutrition, physical health, and mindfulness. At DORD we believe mental health is every aspect of our lives, not just the hard parts.
Brands I Work With
The best art educates the heart and the mind, and Diana Vilic has done both in this collection of poems. At once lyrical and educational, Vilic's work is a must-read for the committed explorer of the self.
Dr. Daniel Crosby, NYT bestselling Author, Psychologist, and Behavioral Finance Expert,
Amidst the chaos of my life and a global pandemic these words transported me to something that felt familiar yet ethereal. Every page felt written for me, connecting to some part of my journey in this life which helped me find connection to others during a time of intense isolation. Every page had a flashback and a memory. Every page had hope. Diana gave me hope of finding love that will meet me exactly where I am, every day.
Amanda Goetz, CEO of House of Wise
Diana’s poems are all mock dictionary definitions, but unlike Ambrose Bierce, her tone is earnest and hopeful. She uses the conceit of fractured language to talk about (and ultimately, too) her own fractured self. She has a knack for deft turns of phrase that invite her reader to experience the horrors of trauma and dysmorphia, as well as the romance that is the journey toward healing and wholeness.
Christopher M. Jones, Professor of Religious Studies, Washburn University
What an odd experience it is, to put yourself in someone else's shoes when actually looking at your own. Diana's writings and stories are more than relatable; they're universal, appealing, human in all its splendour. A ride about a life that, although not mine, has a very comfy, familiar tone to it.
Frederico Roberto, Creative Director at Interweave Agency
Diana Vilic’s poetry is simultaneously modern in style and timeless in theme. She draws upon contemporary psychology and even neuroscience to tell an emotional love story that everyone should want to experience for themselves. I finished the book wanting more ... more of her poems and more love of my own.
Nathan E. Yates, MSF, Digital Marketing Consultant Specializing in Financial Services
In the time I worked with Diana her work ethic was something I could always count on. She was reliable, worked hard, and her quality was always consistent. The products she made for our clients were done well and with care. When given the space to use her creativity for promotions or advertising her final piece was nothing less than stellar.
Tiffany Hardges, Customer Relations & Business Operations
Diana is a ray of sunshine when everything seems overcast. If anyone can find a way to make something positive out of a bad situation, it is Diana.
