With over ten years of experience in digital media, Devan is a trusted voice in the parenting space, honing her instincts for creating engaging editorial and social strategies that tap into the topics that matter most to parents. She has worked with many leading media brands, including Disney,, POPSUGAR,, Distractify, Scary Mommy, and more.

As a disabled person, Devan is equally passionate about promoting visibility and inclusion for disabled voices in parenting spaces.

Devan lives in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, with her husband, their four kids, and four cats. In her free time, she’s probably watching the latest reality TV drama unfold or rewatching every cat and goat video online instead of going to bed at a reasonable hour.
