Office Hours: 12-1pm on Fridays

As VP of Sustainability Consulting at Stok, Devon advises clients on how to define, develop, implement, and manage customized sustainability programs and standards for their building portfolios that authentically align with their corporate brand, values, and purpose. Her efforts work to reinforce clients’ broader strategic goals to enhance ESG initiatives, develop corporate carbon strategies, and improve their overall sustainability impact. Devon recently authored The Sustainable Real Estate Program Handbook to guide corporate real estate professionals, ESG leaders, and executive teams in using their real estate programs to advance company climate commitments and ESG goals. In addition to guiding clients, Devon works alongside the firm’s other team leads to broaden and enhance Stok’s signature ability to meet clients at any point and phase of a project. She also supports the growth and development of Stok’s subject matter experts and new strategic initiatives within the company. 


Her people-centric method and collaborative approach stem from her passion for making it personal and human-focused, and connecting the dots—whether people to people, challenges to solutions, or goals to actions. Devon has been working in the sustainability consulting realm for over 15 years, spanning from New York to Denver to Santiago, Chile to San Francisco. Before landing in the high-performance building world, Devon researched the benefits of green roofs, managed an art gallery, and spent a memorable year in New Zealand picking apples, racing her twin sister down mountainside hiking trails, and cleaning holiday homes. Devon holds an MBA from Presidio Graduate School and a BA in Environmental Studies with Literature from Middlebury College.
