About Aimee

I like birds. 
I write, edit, and teach primarily memoir and creative nonfiction but have experience with all contemporary genres. 

I'm an experienced teacher trained in both K-12 and adult classroom education teaching all levels of creative writing. I am also an expert developmental editor and copyeditor, writing and accountability coach, young person and adult curriculum developer, and a trained meeting facilitator.

I'm a domestic, tail-end of the Baby Scoop Era adoptee. I was adopted through Louise Wise Services and spent the first six months of my life in foster care after being surrendered immediately at birth. I was reunited with both of my birth parents, who have both since died. I'm queer, a native New Yorker, and a parent now, raising two daughters, one of whom is disabled. We are navigating disability and disability advocacy together. Writing my story and teaching writing to other adoptees, parents, and anyone with a story to tell are among the most important things I can do. 

Please take a look through my site and my linktree to see what I've written, the classes I teach, and the services I offer. Let me help you get your story, essay, or book out into the world. Representation matters on the page, and you have a story that needs to be told.
