If family history isn't fun,

you are doing it wrong!

I motivate individuals to preserve their histories to save their families. Genealogy and memory keeping have the power to heal, strengthen, and reunite families. Youth who know their family histories do better in school and life.

In high school, Devon Noel discovered her passion for teaching while serving as captain of her a high school color guard. She loved teaching potential and active guard members how to twirl flags, march, and master routines. As Miss San Jacinto Teen USA and Miss Palestine, Devon further developed her stage presence. Her favorite pageant experiences involved events where she was able to present motivational speeches and engage with her audience off-stage.

As an adult, Devon Noel has further developed her teaching skills as a teacher in her church from the the youngest child to teenagers and adults . Building upon these experiences, she began teaching at family history and genealogy events with her first gig in Cedar Rapids, Iowa teaching 'Digital Scrapbooking.'  Since then, she has been invited to present at libraries, conferences and societies.
