After the brilliant timing of his exit from the health and human services sector and jumping into the financial sector of the economy eighteen months before the worst economic environment since the great depression Devlin finds himself slowly migrating back to his roots. While still finding time to manage and care for the clients he so carefully brought into his business Devlin has joined with the Mac Lane agency and put the Alpine Agency out to pasture. This is allowing Devlin to have the best of both worlds. At the current time Devlin is enjoying both sides of his professional life, that of professional educator and that of a financial services professional. Devlin is now spending a great deal more time teaching Cognitive Psychology to students attending one the largest on-line universities in the world. Devlin began teaching well over a year ago and gets a great deal of satisfaction as a faculty member teaching psychology. Devlin still finds time to remain engaged with the financial services sector to support his existing customers with their accounts.
