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!
