Spotlight: Nina DeVoe - Improving the Quality of Life for Women in Delaware
DPA Communications Contest: Looking Great in 2008 Spotlight: Nina Irene DeVoe Nina DeVoe With an infectious smile on her face, DPA member Nina DeVoe says, "I have been blessed with having had some great people in my life-my parents, my relatives, numerous friends, associates and neighbors, and the Mermaids I swim with at the Y. And . . . I have a secret skill. Nina is also a whiz in graphic design, publishing, grant writing, event planning, Web writing and design, audio visual training, e-learning and coaching. She uses her many talents to author and publish an assortment of printed materials, create displays and develop and lead special projects that have the potential to change lives. Whether in her job or as a community volunteer, Nina is most passionate about creating substantial and sustainable projects that improve the quality of life of citizens. She led the first statewide Online Learning Program for Low-income Working Single Mothers in the U.S. (the program has been replicated in other states); planned and organized refurbishment of a nonprofit Montessori school; and planned and implemented "Tech Savvy," a training program for underserved Dover-area girls. The result: increased resources and visibility for the Delaware Commission for Women. She is also a volunteer board member on the Marketing and Public Relations Committee with United Way of Delaware. A self-described rebel and artist who challenges the status quo, Nina says, "For the last ten years I've had one of the most interesting jobs in the State with the Delaware Commission for Women. Nina says, "The result will be a marketing plan with promotional printed materials created with input from a diverse state-wide committee." Another day includes a tour of one of Delaware's little-known museums with a historic interpreter whose perspective on women's roles (pre-Columbus) will help shape ideas for an educational partnership exhibit for Women's History Month. "Then," Nina adds, "there are the days when I spend hours in front of the computer working on documents, research and graphic design." A lifelong learner, Nina is interested in futuristic and cutting-edge ideas. She attended the Chicago Public High School for Metropolitan Studies (a "school without walls"-one of the first experimental high schools in the country), Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, and was graduated from Columbia College in Chicago. She is knowledgeable about many crafts, especially jewelry making-her hobby turned business. Prior to coming to Delaware in 1997, Nina lived in Berkeley, California; Olympia, Washington; and San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. She led a water conservation program for the city of Houston, Texas, and she spent two weeks in Senegal on a photo expedition. Nina counts her son first among her blessings. "As a single parent to one fantastic Nicholas Edgar," she says with a laugh, "I rely on a good sense of humor. He's currently going through his teen years and is more like me than I'd care to admit. I've been able to manage because maturity, lifelong learning and a variety of experiences have helped to create balance in my life." "A couple of years ago," Nina says, "I had the opportunity to work with Katherine Ward on the Commission's highly successful 25th anniversary celebration of the Hall of Fame of Delaware Women. Nina, Katherine and Barry received a first-place award in the 2007 communications contest for their work on a PR campaign to orchestrate and promote the Hall of Fame event. One judge said, "Incredible (!) high-quality materials. Excellent product and campaign for relationship building. From Nina DeVoe, no less would have been expected.
