Director of Impact & Sustainability for MFC Tie-Dye Inc.
Julia Whitcavitch-DeVoy is an applied psychologist working in both business and academic settings. She studies the relationship of social class variables to the human lifespan. Her work and research focuses on social mobility among low income global citizens, and examines personal aspects, as well as, ecological contexts such as family, faith group, workplace, community and educational settings that facilitate or constrain optimal development. She is currently studying ways in which economically disempowered individuals develop dual class-based psychological identities in order to transition to elevated economic success levels while maintaining healthy emotional well-being and relational support connections.
She has been involved nationally and internationally in social impact, social entrepreneur businesses and social justice work since 1989.
She holds a B.A. from Saint Lawrence University, MTS from Harvard University, PhD from Boston College, and expects to complete her MBA from Oxford University in 2017.
