Diane is a native of the Capital District, having grown up in Niskayuna, New York. After high school, she received her B.S. in Religion at Hartwick College and went on to complete her M.S.Ed. at the State University College at Buffalo. 

After working in the field of student personnel administration for a number of years, Diane found her passion in a completely different profession… Electrolysis! In January of 1978 she attended the Kree International School of Electrolysis in New York City and opened her offices in September. It was in this profession that she found the greatest satisfaction in serving people on an individual level, forming deep relationships with each client, and changing their ability to feel good about themselves. There is no greater joy! 

In 2020 her wildest expectations were exceeded when her son, Cody Curtis Crimmins, decided to join her in this profession becoming the second generation serving the Capital District at Curtis Electrolysis.


Cody is a native of the capital district as well, graduating from Columbia High School in 2008. After receiving an associate’s degree from Hudson Valley Community College, then went on to complete training at Bryant and Stratton in both phlebotomy and EKG.

Cody worked for LabCorp as a phlebotomist for a number of years both in Albany and Charlotte, NC. He then decided to apply his highly trained precision skills to the study and practice of electrolysis. After successfully completing studies at the Berkowitz School of Electrolysis in New York, he joined the staff at Curtis Electrolysis in 2021. Since that time he has been rapidly developing a clientele of his own, enabling Curtis Electrolysis to significantly expand its services… and, as Cody says, “Changing lives, one hair at a time!”
