Our Team Leads
WENDY J. COCHRAN | CEO
Wendy Cochran is the CEO of Sky Bridge Therapies. After a long and fulfilling career working in personal injury law where her firm had a focus on protecting and representing children with disabilities, she had her fifth (and final) child and became a stay at home mother. At age 2 her youngest son, Decker, was diagnosed with Autism and Wendy spent 3 years traveling Pierce County to as many as 3 facilities and 8 appointments per week. Having trekked the same paths 10 years prior with her eldest son seeking therapy, it became clear that not much had changed in the therapy community. There is still a huge gap between services needed by children and what is offered in Pierce County. More than just addressing a piece of a child’s treatment needs, Wendy recognized the need for a clinic that addressed the whole child.
Wendy is a proud wife and mother who spends her free time supporting her family’s endeavors. She is the proud parent of Cooper who is attending the Doctorate program of Occupational Therapy at the University of Puget Sound and Cade who is studying at UCLA. She cheers on daughters Skylar and Taylor as they compete and participate in academics, sports and music. Wendy also supports Decker and his peers in elementary school through volunteering and coaching. She can also be found in the courtroom pews as she proudly supports her husband’s career as a trial lawyer representing victims of abuse and other catastrophic injuries.
RACHELLE BOGUE, MS-HCA | Director of Business Operations
Rachelle has her master’s degree in Healthcare Administration from California State University, East Bay. Prior to joining Sky Bridge Therapies, she served as Practice Administrator for a private MFT therapy clinic. She also managed the HIV and Hepatitis C testing and linkage to care programs at a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and Sutter Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, a 2 site emergency department hospital with over 97,500 annual visits located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Rachelle has experience in patient engagement, community outreach, strategic planning and program management, and she has presented at National and International conferences regarding best practices in the field of HIV/HCV program management. She is excited to be part of the Sky Bridge Therapies team!
Rachelle recently moved from California to Washington. In her free time, she enjoys traveling (and travel planning), crocheting, knitting, spending time with her husband and their two cats: Oliver & Luci (short for Lucifer, both named after Disney cats) reading, and exploring the beautiful state of Washington that she now proudly calls home.
JANE HANSON | Director of Therapy Services and OT Department Head
Jane began her many years of formal education earning a degree in Early Childhood Education, moved on to receive her Occupational Therapy degree from the University of Washington, and then a Master’s degree in healthcare management. Jane is excited to be a part of the Sky Bridge Therapies team to build upon the collaborative team approach and be a witness to all the amazing work that is done here.
She is a mom and grandma with lots of hands-on experience with children, including two of her own grandchildren who have special needs. Jane loves working in a pediatric setting where children are guided toward reaching each milestone, gain functional skills, and build a foundation that will assist them throughout school and beyond.
Jane enjoys photography, crafts, and spending time with her family.
MICHELLE LANE | OT Support Manager/Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant
Michelle Lane is a nationally certified and licensed Occupational therapy assistant at Sky Bridge therapies. She graduated from Green River College with an Associates degree in applied science.
Through Michelle’s life experiences she has developed a passion for working with children. She strives to connect with families to provide a rewarding and successful therapy experience while making a positive change for the children as they are working toward their independence.
Michelle got married to the love of her life last year, and is making new memories as she prepares for the future. She spends her free time with her family and friends when she is not vacationing or off on an adventure with her grandchildren.
AUBRAY MAGNUSSON | Speech Therapy Department Manager
Aubray graduated in 2014 from Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas with her M.S. in Speech Language Pathology. Although she loves working with individuals of all ages, Aubray always had a heart for working with the pediatric population because they have such a joy and innocence around them and therapy, while challenging at times, can also be so fun! Aubray love seeing her patients grow, and progress, and she considers their joy and zest for life the most rewarding part of working with kids!
Aubray is thrilled to serve as the Speech Department Manager here at Sky Bridge Therapies to help mentor incoming therapists while still working with patients and continuing to develop as a therapist herself. Going from Kansas to Washington has been a big move, but she is enjoying life on the West Coast! In her free time, Aubray love spending time with family (who are spread all over the US and Canada.) She also loves drinking coffee, reading, cooking, and puzzles/art & crafts.
COOPER M. COCHRAN | Intern
I have always been a little different than other kids. Where noise wouldn’t affect most kids it physically hurt me and caused severe anxiety. Where some kids would engage in interactions and talk with one another, I chose to be alone because I just didn’t know how to communicate with others. Everyday life was a challenge, coping resulted in tears and stress beyond what other kids experienced. My mom took me in to a Developmental Pediatrician at a young age and we realized that it wasn’t my fault. The doctor used the terms “developmental delays” and “Aspergers” which gave us something to point to for the reason why I was having such a hard time coping in life. I never knew what it all meant but from that point on life changed.
My mom took me to speech therapy and occupational therapy appointments several times a week to ensure I learned the life skills necessary to be successful in life. After nine years of hard work, I turned a corner. With the support of my parents, coaches and teachers, I gained more confidence and took on new challenges. I joined athletic teams receiving my varsity letter in three sports, and even took Advanced Placement courses in high school. By gaining the tools necessary to go through life I have become a success in school and on the field.
Today I am enrolled in the University of Puget Sound doctoral program and an active member of the Phi Delta fraternity at UPS. I am excited to continue on my path of learning pediatric occupational therapy, interning and learning at Sky Bridge Therapies as I pursue my doctorate in an area that is close to my heart.
