Diane Pol stars in Nat Geo Wild's reality docu-series "The Incredible Dr. Pol." She is the wife of veterinarian Dr. Jan Pol.

Diane Pol was born in Mayville, Michigan, and met Jan Pol when he was a foreign exchange student at Mayville High School in 1961 during her senior year. Though they were only friends at first, their relationship evolved after they spent years writing to each other after Dr. Pol returned to the Netherlands. Dr. Pol invited Diane to visit him and meet his family, and the couple's relationship became more serious. Though Diane had to return to Michigan while Dr. Pol finished his studies, they eventually married in 1967.

After living in Dr. Pol's native country for a few years, the two immigrated back to United States and moved to Harbor Beach, Michigan. Diane received her master's degree in Special Reading and taught in Lapeer and Harbor Beach Elementary Schools. In 1981, Diane and Jan moved from Harbor Beach to Weidman, Michigan, and started Pol Veterinary Services from their garage. Diane gave up teaching to help run the veterinary office and take care of their son and two daughters. Today, Diane works at Pol Veterinary Services as the office manager and bookkeeper, and she also enjoys teaching Sunday School at her church.
