Community

Protest Sign

Embracing my community through volunteering with a variety of organizations over the years is what truly feeds my soul. From special events management, to pro bono recruiting and coaching, to mentoring youth, to getting my hands dirty with environmental projects, I love giving my time to organizations dedicated to both planet and people.

Her enthusiasm and effective collaboration skills enlisted many additional volunteers and she participated as a classroom volunteer herself. It is a pleasure to work with Aimee!”
