Hey Wizards fans!  My name is Devon and this is my rookie year as a Washington Wizards Girl.  I can’t wait to hit the court with the veterans and show all the fans how hard we have been working during the off season.  I must warn you though; my dad is even more excited than I am.  Do me a favor, if you see or hear him shouting my name, cutting lines, and taking an excessive amount of pictures please give him a nudge for me-I’d appreciate it!

What college or university did you attend? Syracuse University. GO ‘CUSE!

When you are not at work, in class or dancing with the Wizards, what is your favorite thing to do? I love spending time with my family, friends, and line sisters. They know me best and always have my best interest in mind.

Favorite thing about being a Wizard Girl? My favorite thing about being a Wizard Girl is that I am dancing again!  I absolutely love to dance and be around young women who also share that passion and love for the art.

What was your most interesting job? My most interesting job was door-to-door sales of Visa/ MasterCard machines.  It was quite a unique experience!

Something most people don’t know about you? I am the fifth generation first born female in my family.  Since my great-great grandmother, every first born child has been a girl.

Favorite thing about DC? My favorite thing about DC is the culture.  We are one of the few places in this nation that has our own music, style and not to mention our incredibly rich historic and political roots. This place is truly amazing.

Who do you admire most and why?  I admire anyone who does not allow someone else or obstacles in life to determine their own destiny. I admire all those blessed with a strong will.
