Devon Smith

Meet our program specialist who loves to play! Devon really enjoys being around kids and has worked with them in many different settings, including years developing programs in preschools and camps.

After experiencing her first Roc Solid playset reveal, and seeing first-hand the joy it left behind, she was hooked to our mission and knew she was in the right place.

She says enthusiasm is her best and worst quality, but we’d say it’s just her best. She jumps into every situation with both feet and a great attitude, and for that we are so thankful.

Devon is also known for sharing great stories, so if you ever get to sit down with her and hear one, you are a lucky human!

We call her Dei (“Day”) for short. She was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and speaks fluent Swahili. She was named Miss Anchorage while working toward her degree in political science at the University of Alaska Anchorage.

But with that incredibly interesting background, she is also very down to earth, kind, loves to laught and has a passion for working with kids.

“I 100% believe that kids will change the world if we invest in them,” she says. “And play is one of the most important building blocks.”

In her position at Roc Solid, Dei gets to work with our families and does whatever it takes to make them feel loved and supported through their journey. She really enjoys hearing their stories and giving them opportunities to bring normalcy back into their lives during hardship.

In her free time, you can find her enjoying tea. And when she’s not doing that, she’s talking about tea. Did we mention she likes tea?
