Aaron has been a valued member of the Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver team for just over 5 years. Originally from Nebraska, Aaron has made Denver his home and enjoys his job as the Manager of the Highlands Ranch ReStore. Aaron leads the day-to-day operations of the ReStore including sales, taking in donations, and supporting his team.

“I get to wear a lot of hats. I have admin responsibilities, coaching and training, and I also get to take in donations and merchandise items.” Aaron continues, “I also really enjoy researching high end furniture and tools.”

All of the profits from the ReStores support Habitat Metro Denver's mission of building and preserving affordable homeownership. “Helping people get into homes is in itself home to me,” shares Aaron.
