Devann Webster shares her career path to success
Devann Webster is the Claims Manager for Morrison and also serves as Operations Administrator for Deepwater Riser Services.
What first brought Devann to Morrison was her participation in a high school program called the C.O.E. (Cooperative Office Education) where she was required to hire on with a company in order to gain office experience. Morrison was her first call.
As a senior in high school, Devann started with Morrison as a mail runner. Upon graduation, she began working in Morrison’s purchasing department as a Junior Buyer, while pursuing her education at Nicholls State University. In 2008, Devann graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration and decided to further her career at Morrison. She transferred to the Human Resources Department and eventually to Risk Management. When a position opened in operations at Morrison’s riser division, she moved into that role while maintaining her duties as claims manager.

Morrison has provided me with the opportunity to explore multiple career paths within this organization. I’ve been blessed to be able to work under different leadership and departments and decide which career I felt gave me the most purpose.
What aspect of your current role do you enjoy the most?
Employee engagement. Although it is during a sensitive time when an employee is ill or has had an injury. I have an opportunity and a duty to show them a different perspective of Morrison. A side that their health and well-being is important to us as a company.
What advice would you give to someone just starting out in their career?
