Devan manages the ChIPs Operations by supporting ChIPs’ day-to-day operations and assisting with the Global and Next Gen Summits. Devan joins ChIPs after years in event planning in the Bay Area, where she has worked with companies including Apple, HP, Seagate, VMWare and more. She most recently managed events for Giants Enterprises, the entrepreneurial arm of the San Francisco Giants. She worked on events from intimate dinners for 12 VIPS to private concerts for 40,000. Devan is a native San Franciscan and loves dogs and horses. Her father selected her name, which is Gaelic for poet, to represent his Irish heritage. Luckily, it also passed her mother’s sole requirement: that it be worthy of a Supreme Court Justice. Though neither a lawyer nor a poet, she is proud to support the women of ChIPs.
