Devin was born and raised as a military kid, and she had the good fortune of being stationed primarily along the coast; she was swimming in the ocean before she could walk, and joined a competitive swim team at the age of 5. She competed in many state and national swim meets up until high school, when she became an assistant swim coach and lifeguard at her local YMCA. There she taught children of all ages how to perfect all four strokes and how to apply that to swimming competitively. She went on to swim for an intramural team in college, where she majored in Painting and Illustration. Devin now works as a jeweler, but she still has a passion for swimming. When she's not at work, you can most likely find her in a pool or in the ocean. She can't wait to pass on her love for the water! She is certified through Red Cross in CPR/AED for professional rescuers and first aid.
