In her role as an Academic Advisor/Success Coach, Aimee supports the success of first-generation and/or limited-income students in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. Aimee brings over 10 years of experience in teaching and advising students from middle school to post-college level.

Aimee earned a BA from the University of California, Los Angeles, where she studied economics. After college, Aimee moved to Washington, DC to work as an accountant in a private equity firm. It was during a volunteer event that she found her true passion in education and working with students. Upon this realization, Aimee pursued a career as a teacher in Baltimore and earned a master’s degree in education at Johns Hopkins University. Aimee then moved to Michigan to join a doctoral program in higher education at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. There, she worked as a Doctoral Fellow at the Center for Educational Outreach and Michigan College Advising Corps, training college advisors across fifteen public schools in Michigan to help low-income and/or first-generation high school students access postsecondary education.
