Head of Housekeeping
Hometown: Louisville, CO

When not down in the housekeeping department, Devyn can be found singing, participating in pilates and cooking. She also loves spending time with her family and friends. Three, of many, things on Devyn’s bucket list include singing at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, running a 10K and half marathon and living in Nashville, Tennessee. Fun fact: Devyn graduated from Boston Conservatory with an emphasis in songwriting, so a lot of the music you will hear her perform is her own music!

Michelle will be spending her third season at Vista Verde as a housekeeper this summer. She loves playing softball and basketball and will actually be on the ranch’s intramural softball team this summer with many other staff.

Before coming to the ranch, Michelle worked in the pharmaceutical industry for two years. Fun fact about Michelle: she has an allergy to gluten, yet her favorite food is pizza.

She is also an avid traveler, having been to many places; her most recent adventure included traveling to Moab, Utah this past off season. She also loves making/eating chocolate chip cookies and drinking Kombucha. Interesting fact about Emily: last summer, she hiked the Appalachian Trail, a hike lasting for about six months.

Grace is currently studying Hospitality & Tourism Management. Grace worked at a daycare facility for five years and was tired of changing diapers so Colorado seemed like a great change of pace for her! She loves to travel and try new things. One of her passions includes singing. You might just find her singing as she’s tidying up your cabin!
