Meet Devan

Washington Women Who Explore Ambassador

I’ve been an outdoor instructor and guide for over a decade and being in nature is one of my favorite things. This summer, I was honored to guide a week-long white water trip on the Salmon River and a rim-to-rim day hike through the Grand Canyon.

For fun, I explored the remote mountain community of Stehekin, through-hiked the Enchantments, backpacked over the Cascades, and facilitated two Women Who Explore getaways!

I own my own business in which comes a lot of freedom and emotional rollercoasters: but worth every moment to see people feeling confident and comfortable in their clothing.

I joined Women Who Explore because of their mission. The outdoor culture can be super intimidating and judgmental, especially for women, but I’m crazy passionate about bringing people who culture says “don’t belong” and proving that stigma wrong. You do belong, and there is healing found in community outdoors.
