Aimee holds a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Shippensburg University.  Aimee’s been a part of the Sylvan team since 2005.  Her responsibilities include meeting with parents to determine and monitor student goals, hire and train staff members, and the development of partnerships with local schools and nonprofit organizations.

Aimee loves being able to see students succeed at the center and then see them build confidence to carry what they learn at Sylvan over into the classroom.  There is nothing more rewarding than having a student share with us the fact that they did well on a test, or that they got an A in a class at school for the first time.
