Born in China, Aimei was adopted when she was several months old and grew up in Woodstock, New York. An only child, Aimei was lucky enough to travel a lot growing up and that included attending Penn State football games with her parents from the time she was 10 years old. It was no surprise when it came time to choose a college, Aimei became a Penn Stater and graduated in 2017 with a B.S. in Psychology. In 2022 Aimei completed her M.S. in Higher Education Administration from Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU).
Professionally, she started as a preschool teacher at Penn State before moving to Boston to become the Community Development Manager at the American Cancer Society and most recently served as the Manager of The Longest Day for the Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. Nonprofit work allows Aimei the ability to provide opportunity to those who want to be involved in a cause that is important to them, and gives her a sense of purpose each day. Familiar with Uplifting Athletes from her days at Penn State, Aimei is excited to serve the rare disease community. Aimei and her fiancé, Jeff, reside in Southern New Jersey.
