CEO & Founder
After moving between Colorado, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Texas with his family during his childhood, Devon made his way to Las Vegas where he intended to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. Halfway through his education, he realized it would be difficult to provide for a family on a teacher’s salary and changed his major to nursing. He graduated with his Registered Nurse in 2016 and went to work in the Emergency Department of a small local hospital in North Las Vegas.
From there, he worked in many Emergency Departments in the area and managed The Adult Emergency Department at UMC. He worked for several EMS agencies doing both rotor and fixed air ambulance nursing and excelled as a Regional Clinical Manager for a large aeromedical company for Nevada, California, and Arizona.
In 2016, he began to understand that local healthcare, especially emergency medical services, needed improvement. In 2017, he formed OptimuMedicine with a group of other nurses and paramedics. Their goal was simple: Elevate Healthcare in a way they could be proud to tell their children about. Since then, OptimuMedicine has been operating in the Las Vegas Valley serving the Veteran’s Affairs beneficiaries, Boulder City providing vital ground Critical Care Transport, and most recently Pahrump, providing ground ambulance services to the residents of Nye County.
Devon currently serves as both the CEO and staff nurse for ground and air ambulance transports and enjoys spending time with his wife and three sons.
