“ESSE offers a smart combination of art, fashion, and history that gives an intimate portrayal of women in 20th-century America – and seeing guests of all generations, both men and women, connect these dots and reflect on the past is a wonderful thing.”
Before joining ESSE, Devin has worked in many fields. From legislative work in Austin, Texas, and outside sales for her family’s engineering company in Virginia to coordinating for a study abroad program in Berlin, Germany, she definitely enjoys taking on new roles and experiences. Her BA in Politics from the University of Virginia and MA in Russian & East European Studies from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill led her to appreciate major movements in history, especially in 20th-century Europe.
Since joining ESSE she has enjoyed learning more about women in American history and helping guests make these same connections.
Devin’s favorite books are Dr. Zhivago by Boris Pasternak and The Quiet American by Graham Greene, and her favorite movies are L.A. Confidential and Fantasia.
