As a graduate of Lewis & Clark College's Hispanic Studies program, and someone who has lived in Valparaíso, Chile and Xalapa, Veracruz, Devon has the bilingual and bicultural understanding to help her clients successfully reach the Latino community. Devon has worked extensively with Oregon Hispanic media -- from KUNP Univision, to El Hispanic News, La Pantera Radio, and more.

I have worked with Devon for over six years, starting when we helped create Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s Latina Initiative together. Her grasp of the Spanish language and her understanding of Latino culture and values make it easy for her to build a bridge between cultures. She knows how to draw people in, open hearts and change minds. Across so many projects, Devon uses marketing as a force for good.
