Diane is a founding principal of Cho Benn Holback (formerly Cho Wilks Benn), a women owned architectural firm noted for projects in the cultural, educational, and community realm where the focus has been on the creative re-use of aging, historic building stock. An early focus on housing led to market rate warehouse renovations such as Tindeco Wharf and Canton Cove, but then Diane began  focusing primarily in the cultural realm including many award-winning projects such as the Baltimore School for the Arts, the Jim Rouse Center at the American Visionary Art Museum, the Everyman Theatre and Center Stage.

As an active leader and a patron for many cultural organizations, she has helped to position and celebrate the arts as a vital ingredient in the life of strong and vibrant cities. After 35 years of building the firm in Baltimore, she and her partners sold their architecture firm in 2017 to Quinn Evans, a national firm headquartered in Washington DC with 5 other branches throughout the mid-Atlantic and Midwest. Diane remains a principal with Quinn Evans.
