About Aimee

​I'm an experienced teacher with a master's of education 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 can demystify the submission and publication process for you and show you how to become a literary citizen and create a sustainable writing practice that will keep you showing up for yourself and your writing in a way that makes sense for you for the long haul. A little about me: 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 I birthed, one of whom is disabled. We are navigating disability and disability advocacy together. Writing my story and teaching writing to other adoptees, parents, adults reclaiming their identities in some way, and anyone with a story to tell are among the most important things I can do. Please take a look here and through my website 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.
