Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Aimee has been active in the marketing, recruitment, and outreach offices at multiple colleges and universities throughout the US. She discovered her passion for higher education during her junior year at Iowa State University when she was selected as part of an elite team to help incoming students during their own freshman orientation. After graduation, she continued her career in university recruitment at a large community college and later became a Regional Director of Admissions at a larger four-year university. Aimee relocated to Oxford, UK in September 2013 to pursue her MSc in marketing degree and fulfill a life-long dream of studying abroad. She has a true passion for travel and study abroad and is excited to work with her team at FIE, an organization that promotes and encourages both.
As the Director of External Communication, Aimee is responsible for the development and implementation of FIE’s comprehensive communication strategy across all channels including the website, social media, electronic and print materials, new initiatives and events.
Aimee holds an MSc in Marketing from Oxford Brookes University, a Certificate in Direct and Digital Marketing from The Institute of Digital Marketing, and a BA in Journalism and Mass Communications (Public Relations emphasis) from Iowa State University. She is a Disney enthusiast and chocolate lover with a flair for online shopping. She tries to get home to visit her family in Minnesota as often as possible.
