About Devon Harris

Every desire, every worthwhile goal, every dream that you have in life is sitting on its equivalent of a 650lb bobsled. In order to overcome inertia, and make audacious goals a reality, you must launch with maximum effort and then continue to push forward with deep intention, and focus. As with a bobsled athlete, when you begin to make steady progress towards your goals you must maintain the intensity. This builds momentum and gives you the best chance to reach your full potential and beyond.

I asked you to try to inspire these young men and women as they begin their careers in health care, and you certainly did that. Your life story is remarkable and the positive reflections you make are very empowering.

Dr. MaryBeth Mandich, Assoc. Dean - Professional Programs - West Virginia University School of Medicine

We truly enjoyed having Devon as the speaker for our event. His warmth and passion really engaged the audience members. Most importantly, he was able to tie his expertise (athletics and sportsmanship) to what's important to our audience.

Aviva Belsky - Association of Medical Publications

Devon Harris spoke to our church prior to our participation in a medical/dental mission trip in rural south Jamaica. His personal story, with his energetic and engaging speaking style, greatly increased the focus and personal ownership of the work.

Bill Todd, Christian Formation Director - Woodcrest Chapel

Devon had the audience in tears and laughter almost at the same time. His ability to compare his story with a pattern for conducting our lives was outstanding. He received one of the few standing ovations we have ever given a speaker.

Chuck Brandon, Director of Field Services - National Propane Gas Association

I want to personally thank you for your polished and incredibly motivating presentation at our annual meeting. The way that you wove our organization's mission and challenges into your presentation was uncanny.

Donna Wachter, Executive Director - Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics

Thank you so much for making our meeting a memorable event. When Devon started to speak the room became so quiet you could hear a pin drop! The audience was hanging on to every word he said. Everyone was so inspired and challenged by Devon's story.
