Come on in! I’m Devan.

Are you ready to become unapologetically yourself?

I certainly hope so because I’m ready to get started with you!

First, a little about me and why I believe we would make a fantastic team!
I am the Self-Worth Coach and Life Coordinator for growth minded women and military spouses, motivational speaker and author of “What’s Your Worth? And I don’t mean money.”. I am also the creator and host of an annual Self-Discovery Women’s Summit, which I hold in-person every fall. I founded my business, Developing with Devan, in 2020 with the mission to empower women, to facilitate the changes they desire in order to be unapologetically themselves.
I have a passion for guiding people to break through societal molds that have been passed down from generation to generation. I have a strong belief in finding a work-life blend, getting to know myself and not just living for the weekend. So, after 10 years as a program coordinator in the education industry, I decided to break the mold and followed my heart into the world of self-discovery and personal growth. Certified as a Holistic, Life, Career and Executive Coach through Goal Imagery Institute and Accredited as an Associate Certified Coach through the International Coaching Federation, I use the power of strength-based coaching, self-discovery and self-awareness to empower my clients to fully accept and embody who they are with no apologies and a deep understanding of their value.
Trained at the undergraduate level in Communication and the graduate level in Organizational Performance and Leadership, I use my educational background and personal experiences to guide myself and anyone who wishes to join me on the mission to help women become unapologetically themselves, explicitly know their value and combat the social conditioning that’s been placed upon us.
Work with Me
My commitment to supporting others and my community shows up in multiple ways. As the Event Coordinator for US Chamber of Commerce Foundation Hiring Our Heroes Military Spouse Professional Network (HOH MSPN) Fort Drum Chapter, I work with Military Spouses to help them identify and achieve their professional and personal goals and visions and help empower them to navigate the obstacles associated with military spouse employment. As the Chapter Lead for Association of Military Spouse Entrepreneurs (AMSE) I have established the Fort Drum Chapter to connect Military Spouse Entrepreneurs with resources and support to launch and grow their businesses. As the Marketing Director for Women Business Opportunities Connection (WBOC) of Syracuse, I provide support to help support the success of other women in business.
As the Greater Watertown Chamber of Commerce Jefferson Leadership Institute Facilitator, I work with emerging leaders to help them develop their leadership capabilities, build strong relationships and encourage involvement in the community. I have created an innovative curriculum to update and embrace the changes in leadership related to current times. 
To expand my reach to work with as many women as possible, I developed and presented workshops at local and national conferences on: Switching your mindset, Finding your superpowers, Goal setting, Vision board creation, and Strength-based business planning.
I am continually learning new skills and enjoy sharing with anyone who asks. My hidden talents include being able to organize just about anything, confidently presenting miscellaneous tidbits of knowledge as fact, and being myself 100% of the time.
I have been with my husband, Trevor Robinson for 11 years and counting. Trevor is a Staff Sergeant in the US Army and fully supports the work I am doing to change the world. We are foster parents and currently have a sibling group of three young boys who keep us both on our toes. Our household also includes two doodles named Ares and Iris and two cats named Toby and Rei.
