CEO & Creator, Sphere

Devon defined a new market category, co-founding Blo, the world’s first and largest franchise chain of Blow Dry Bars. The company now spans four countries, with 130+ locations, and has attracted collaborations with international mega-brands like Mattel, Guess, Topshop, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

After a decade supporting hundreds of creatives, professionals, start-ups, and founders in articulating and realizing their goals as a leadership + life coach, she's set her sights on transforming the personal-development landscape, by democratizing coaching. Born from her own frustrations with the lack of accessibility, inclusiveness and exceptional technology in the multi-billion-dollar personal and professional coaching industry, her newest venture, Sphere, reimagines and scales the way guidance is accessed and delivered. With a managed marketplace boasting 160+ vetted, best-in-class Guides from across North America and seamless end-to-end platform, Sphere  elevates the experience of coaching, making it convenient, personalized and totally approachable. So you can meet, book, and have sessions with the best-fit Guides, on an agile Classpass-style membership that makes getting coaching as easy as going to the gym. Sphere is backed by leadership from Lululemon, Headspace, Thinx and The Marcus Buckingham Company.

Devon supports the future of entrepreneurship as a board member at Futurpreneur Canada, was named 1 of the 30 'most fabulous entrepreneurs' by PROFIT Magazine, has been recognized on Canada's Parliament Hill one of the 'Inspiring Fifty'  women in STEM and awarded Business in Vancouver's 'Top Forty Under 40’.  Any time Devon isn't spending making an impact through business, you'll find her somewhere getting muddy in the pristine woods of British Columbia with her nature-loving 3- and 5-year-old kiddos Rozen and Clooney.
