A Warm WELCOME
Devin Wallace is the new Program Manager for the San Luis Obispo County and northern Santa Barbara County regions. Before joining the Society, Devin was Director of the Edward R. Gordon Stroke & Neurological Wellness
campus in Inglewood, California. Previous experience includes six years as Director of Education at the Stroke Association of Southern California, where he designed and managed therapeutic and educational programs for stroke survivors and their families. He also taught at the ARISE Stroke Recovery Center in Seattle, Washington and served for several years as Program Coordinator for the Evergreen Stroke Association in that city.
One of Devin's particular interests is the role of the arts in health and wellness. He has created and facilitated music, theatre, and writing therapy programs for both neurological and drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. This work grew out of Devin's extensive professional experience as a playwright and musician in the Northwest. Devin has expertise in stress management and mediation, and is eager to put these skills to use in support of the National MS Society’s mission.
Devin looks forward to expanding the programs and services available for the MS communities in San Luis Obispo County and northern Santa Barbara County.
