20+ Years Experience.
Devonne is a master trainer with specialties in rehabilitation, injury prevention and weight loss.
She started her career in health and fitness over 22 years ago. “After my best friend became paralyzed in an accident, I was inspired to become a physical therapist. Spending time with my friend during her journey to rehabilitation, I became aware of the power we have over changing the course of our healing, personal health and quality of life. For 10 years, I worked with patients and clients with neurological, cardiac, and orthopedic challenges in a variety of settings including rehabilitation, acute care hospitals, geriatrics, sports medicine and orthopedic clinics. Devonne has a B.S. in Kinesiology-Biophysics from the University of Maryland and is certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine certification.
“In 2003, I decided to enter into the fitness industry as a personal trainer with a post-rehab specialty, which has allowed me to continue my work with injured individuals but also allows me to help healthy people achieve their fitness goals. Since then, it has been quite a journey into education. I have worked as the Asst. Strength and Conditioning Coach at National Cathedral School where I assisted in the programming, training, and conditioning of over 150 athletes in 10 different sports and taught physical education classes. At Howard University, I was an adjunct professor teaching academic courses introducing degree candidates to the discipline of athletic training and weight training. I train and educate athletes from ages 4 and up who are in elementary/middle/high school, college, and at the professional level focusing services on injury prevention, strengthen conditioning, and rehabilitation. In February of 2017, I began training and educating individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities.”
