Aimee serves on DNAngels’ Board as Secretary, and she’s also a Lead Genetic Genealogist. She comes to DNAngels with a medical background and was previously an officer and board member of a non profit organization focused on the elderly and children. Aimee leads a team of Angels and has helped to develop our training and mentorship programs. She is a member of National Genealogical Society, NGS, and International Society of Genetic Genealogy, ISOGG. She has taken multiple certificate courses through National Genealogy Society and attended numerous webinars and workshops. She attended the RootsTech conference in 2020 and will be attending their future events.
Aimee’s personal journey goes back 18 years. In 2014, her interest morphed into the study of autosomal DNA (focusing on single nucleotide polymorphisms) in search of a diagnosis for her daughter who has a rare medical disorder. Between Aimee’s diligence and finding the right specialists, her daughter was finally able to be tested and appropriately treated. Aimee went on to solve several family genealogical mysteries.
In her spare time, Aimee enjoys photography, roller coasters and visiting Cedar Point amusement park with her family. Aimee realizes that without help from our Search Angels, many of our clients would never know their true biological parents. She takes great pride and feels blessed to share her knowledge and gifts helping families reunite, answer questions, and ensure each client does not feel alone in their journey.
