Devon empowers our clients to get outside their comfort zone, to think outside the box, and to be proactive rather than reacting out of habit. She energizes clients by helping them to focus on their accomplishments as well as to take pride in what they have achieved and can achieve. She currently serves as the project lead on the evaluation of Federal Reserve Bank of Boston's Working Cities Challenge in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. Devon was the co-lead of Phase 1 of an evaluation of Invest Health, a cross-site initiative involving 50 small cities addressing the intersection of community development and health, and is now co-leading Phase 2, which kicked off in the fall of 2018. She previously led evaluations of the Brookings Institution's Project on State and Municipal Innovation, an evaluation of the influence of Living Cities, Boston's SkillWorks Phase II, and the Workforce Solutions Collaborative of Metro Hartford.
