Meet our lead staff! We are continuously complimented on the amazing staff that we have here at Northwest’s Child/Aaron’s Place and we couldn’t agree more. Please meet the faces behind Northwest’s Child and Aaron’s Place.

Brian: Hello, my name is Brian Cash and I am the head teacher at Aaron’s Place Shoreline.  I have been with Aaron’s Place since 2011, and have worked at the Seattle, Shoreline, and former Bothell site. I became head teacher at the Shoreline site in October of 2016, and have loved the position ever since.  Aaron’s Place is about community, togetherness, inclusion, and love, and that makes every day at Aaron’s Place a true treat.  I love coming to work each day, and it is because of the compassion and heart all the clients here have.

Gabe: My name is Gabriel Rochon and I have been with Northwest’s Child/Aaron’s Place since 2017. I started out as an Assistant at Aaron’s Place Bothell site before I became the Head Teacher at Aaron’s Place Kirkland in the summer of 2018. I absolutely love every day that I get to come to work, it is always an adventure and no two days are the same! In the 3 years I have been here I can honestly say the students have taught me just as much as I have taught them. When I am not at AP/NWC I am probably on the baseball field coaching at Marysville Getchell High School, where I am the Varsity Baseball Head Coach, or with Seattle Select, where I am a head coach and hitting instructor youth travel baseball.

Jessica: Hi Friends, I’m Jessica! After growing up all over the country as an Army Brat, I now officially call the PNW my home. Pullman, WA will always have a bit of my heart though, after I graduated from Washington State University in 2010. GO COUGS! I’ve been a part of the Aaron’s Place Seattle team for NINE YEARS now [with 8 years as Head Teacher], and I’m still loving every minute of it!  Our students have truly become my family, even though one or two treat me like I’m their annoying little sister…hmph. My favorite things to do at the program are arts & crafts, puzzles, and rocking out to music, and my favorite field trips are going to the Zoo and Kangaroo Farm every year.

Susan: Hello! My name is Susan and I am the lead teacher at NWC Edmonds. I have worked with kids for almost the entirety of my professional life. Working with the kids at NWC brings me so much joy. I especially love sharing my passion for music, art, baking and hiking with them!
