Devin has had a passion for travel since a very young age, which has taken her all over the world to more than 50 different countries. Growing up in the suburbs of Toronto, she graduated high school and wanted to explore the world.
She headed to Vancouver to study economics at UBC, then did a year abroad in Australia, followed by a solo backpacking trip around Asia. After a brief stint in Toronto, Devin traveled to the U.K., first to do her Masters in International Development in Bristol, and then to work in London as a Country Risk Economist, covering Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Working in this field gave her great exposure to the business world, and the opportunity to analyze and visit faraway lands like Kazakhstan and Kosovo - just slightly off the tourist path!
Devin decided to come back to her beloved Toronto and swapped economics for a career in travel. She is now Director of Digital Strategy and Senior Staff Writer at Travelweek magazine - a Canadian travel trade publication for over 40 years - leading her team in the exciting and fast-paced world of online digital media. Devin is looking to connect with like-minded individuals in Toronto to build engaging professional relationships, and also make some new friends.
