Devon is an LA-based impact producer, strategy consultant & event producer. She's led the campaigns for several documentaries, including The First Step, which follows Van Jones as he attempts to bring bipartisan advocates and politicians together in order to pass a landmark criminal justice bill, and Undivide US, which speaks to the roots of toxic polarization and how communities can overcome it with those in which they disagree with. Additional films Devon has worked on as an impact producer include Hulu's I Am Greta (intergenerational climate action), The Farmlink Project's Abundance (food waste/food insecurity), and Indican Pictures' Life & Life (criminal justice reform/redemption).

Devon's specialities within impact production include building strong partnerships, coordinating impactful events and film discussions, and providing creative marketing approaches to film campaigns and audience engagement.

Devon was formerly the Project Coordinator at the Skoll Center for Social Impact Entertainment at UCLA, where she co-organized events such as Skoll’s Spark Change Summit, a day-long event for impact-focused filmmakers, and a fully accessible screening of the Oscar-nominated film 'Feeling Through' for LA's DeafBlind community. Devon is on the leadership team of SIE Society and previously served as a Board Member for Young Entertainment Activists, for which she was an associate producer for their virtual 2020 Hollywood Digital Climate Summit. Her workshop "Documenting the Climate Crisis" focused on how documentary filmmakers can be successful in creating social impact and changing climate policy through their stories and adjacent impact campaigns.
