Dana DeVoe joins BAM after a decade navigating the industry from the talent side, supporting her daughter’s career in film and television as a child actor. It was through this experience that she realized just how critical a Manager can be when navigating this very competitive and challenging industry. This developed into a passion to help others succeed.
Prior to managing, Dana worked 20 years in the Semiconductor Engineering field developing new technologies and managing cross-disciplinary global teams. She has a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a Masters of Business Administration. But the highlight of her previous career was developing talent within her engineering team, helping them to become experts in their field, and driving them to excel-- something she brings into her current role as a Talent Manager.

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Eric, and two teen daughters, Ava and Cameron. They love to travel, binge watch good tv, and spend time with friends.
Mindi St Peter
Literary Manager - BAMbooks
Production Manager - BAM in Motion
Mindi St. Peter taught herself to read at the age of three. She then demonstrated her newfound ability to her mother by climbing into her lap and reading to her from the Sunday comics. Mindi has been a voracious reader ever since.
Knowing how much reading was a positive and important part of her life made Mindi want to pass that gift on to as many people as she could. This is what made her decide to be a teacher of tiny humans. After getting her B.A. in Sociology, she went on to get her teaching certification and then her Masters of Science in Education. She has been teaching for 21 years.
Mindi is no stranger to the entertainment industry. For as long as she can remember, she has been surrounded by authors, voiceover artists, musicians and actors. She has been getting her feet wet in the entertainment industry for a few years now and is now ready to marry her unique abilities and aforementioned voracity so that she may help authors get their books into the hands of the perfect publishers. BAM Management is the perfect home for Mindi because she has the perfect balance of skill, a love for artists and a tenacity to see a book project from concept to completion.
Mindi lives in Huntington Beach, CA with her husband Dan, their two daughters Abigail and Juliana, and their bearded dragon named Thomas. They enjoy spending time with each other at home, on the beach, or traveling and three out of four of them love to read ;)
