Biography

Devra began her professional career working with youth in a residential treatment facility over 20 years ago.  She has worked within the foster care community as a home supervisor, a caseworker, and an individual and family therapist.  While working as a domestic violence therapist, she was introduced to the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn and began her own meditation practice.  Since switching to the educational realm as a School Social Worker, it has been her passion to introduce Mindfulness to the youth and other professionals with whom she works.
