Although Devan is originally from the smallest of all 50 states, her passion for health and humanity stretches globally. That interest was sparked by a public health service trip to Central America as an undergraduate at Boston University. Since finishing her Master of Public Health, she has spent the last five years using that theory to influence her practice in the South American Andes.
When not on a Medical Service Trip, you can find Devan traversing the mountains of Cotopaxi by pick-up truck and by foot, practicing the little bit of the indigenous language of Kichwa she has picked up. She has spent much of the past year in collaboration with different clinics, organizations, and the ministry of health in an attempt to access affordable and culturally appropriate care for the patients referred from our primary care clinics in Guangaje.
In her free time, Devan enjoys running and hiking, which has led her to explore various parts of Ecuador. One of her favorite things about the country is it’s diversity and natural beauty, but above all is her appreciation for the locally produced coffee and chocolate she tries in every new part she visits.
