Diana Ivelis knows, first-hand, the challenges of having a child who is a talented actor but not knowing how to get them started professionally. Since 2014, she’s been managing her three children in the entertainment industry, moving from their hometown in Pennsylvania to Southern California. With her experience and knowledge of the industry, she’s helped her son land a series regular role on a popular prime-time network television series.

Diana’s innate ability to successfully navigate the industry has led to her becoming a talent agent in Los Angeles—working in the youth department—submitting talented children for amazing opportunities and helping parents understand what is needed for their children to succeed. She is most active in her “Affirm Your Star” Facebook group and YouTube channel where she shares tips, tools, and resources that can aid any supportive parent in helping their child become a successful actor.

Since the age of 21, Diana Ivelis, a Philadelphia native, was a licensed cosmetologist who designed hair and make-up behind the scenes for photoshoots, fashion shows, and other events before her children exposed her to the world of entertainment.

In 2010, her oldest Aniya started taking theater classes, which led to each of her three children landing representation in the spheres of print, television, and film by 2014. Eventually, all three children exercised different paths within the entertainment realm, but they all continued to grow within their respective spaces. Through these experiences, she has furthered a unique understanding of just how the modern entertainment industry functions in front of the camera and behind the scenes and shares these lessons to encourage and inspire other families.
