Rouch, Devon

La Push, Washington

I am the first floor counselor here at Kingston High School. This is my first year here, and I am excited to join the team that will be working to support you, as a student or parent. Please visit the Counseling Center webpage to get quick information regarding graduation requirements, college, university, and career information, and so much more. Please contact me at if you have any questions.

I am originally from the Orlando area in Florida, where I attended University of Central Florida studying Psychology. I found college very challenging at first, resulting in extensive learning about priorities and how to self-advocate. After I graduated with my bachelors degree I took a break from school, moved to Washington, and started to Farm:

Whidbey Island, Washington

Willowood Farm

Chimacum, Washington

Red Dog Farm

I love farming, but after a few years I realized that my body couldn’t handle the intense physicality forever. I started to explore my other strengths and interests, which led me to Counseling. I went back to graduate school with new vigor to study Counseling with a specialization in schools at Seattle University . I continued to farm while in grad school and now continue to maintain a large garden while I work as a counselor. In addition to Farmer, I also identify as a Gamer (PC and Tabletop), Disk-Golfer, Archer, Climber, and ISFJ.

Life is an adventure, full of twists and turns, and we do the best we can with what we have. Learning the skills to self-advocate and meet our needs along the way is one of the most important and rewarding things we can do to prepare for those twists we don’t expect. I hope to be able to improve my students’ self-awareness and foster a desire to learn, while empowering them to make the choices that will be right for them. I wish you luck on your big adventure.
