Community

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.

“Aimee is a highly creative, talented professional with great communication and teamwork skills. For the past several years and at two different companies, Aimee provided internal company promotion and support for our volunteer outreach program to schools. She is passionate about contributing to community-based programs that support education. 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!”
~ Darrin Marks, Business Education Compact

"Aimee is a bright and enthusiastic addition to the Portland tech

community. She's a regular at tech networking events, and

organized a volunteer opportunity at a local elementary school

that I participated in. She's worked hard to establish connections

between education and non-profits and the tech sector and

succeeded with her efforts to pull me into the fray. Aimee is a great connector of people and fun to work with."
~ Selena Deckelmann, VP / Mozilla

“Aimee was a fantastic addition to the “Careers in Sustainability”

panel at PSU. She really connected with the students and gave them

great information about career preparation and strategic job search

and also demonstrated a genuine understanding and compassion

for their challenges. Aimee’s energy and enthusiasm is infectious and students gave the panel rave reviews!”

~ Mary Vance, Portland State University

“Aimee’s knowledge is bountiful, and she shared it generously

through captivating stories, inspiring a group of people in the

process. Also, Aimee has very effective and subtle communication

skills. She tactfully articulated a difficult matter that needed to be

heard, and in a way that was well received.”
~ Austin Erdman, Reach Community Development

“Aimee is a Connector Extraordinaire! She organizes events to

connect university career centers and faculty with her organization

to help us steer candidates her way. Having worked with Aimee

since she transitioned from Volt to Puppet and positions in between,

I can attest to her versatility and adaptability. She is also energetic

and talented, and is generous in sharing her energy and talents. I

always look forward to working with Aimee!”
~ Jan Goodyear, Oregon Institute of Technology

“Aimee is the greatest mentor anybody could ask for. When she

takes you under her wing, you can be certain you will learn much

more than you bargained for. She is the most helpful, passionate

and dedicated person you will ever meet. Her way of working is completely organic and she has an innate gift of bringing out the

other person’s interests. Aimee is always looking to connect you

with your passion and given her gift of talent spotting, it’s a recipe

for success! She is as dedicated to weaving the fabric of

sustainability within her organization, as she is to promoting women

in technology outside the organization.”
~ Nandini Mitra, University of Oregon (Sustainability/IT Intern)
