She served on the Emerging Leaders Council for seven years, spending time on the Campaign Cabinet and Board of Directors, and in 2017, Aimee joined Women United. She brings so much creativity, expertise, and passion to everything she does. Thank you for all you do, Aimee!

Thank you to the volunteers that made our LINC Together Through Community Schools event a success! LINC volunteers had the opportunity to read books to a K5 classroom at Zablocki Elementary School and held mock interviews for seniors at South Division High School to help students prepare for life after graduation. A special shoutout to our wonderful volunteers who came out to conduct these mock interviews: Madison Ashman, Nora Godoy-Gonzalez, Kaila Mitchel, Ethan Schulting, and Bridgette Yang.
