ACMA holds a very special place in Aimi's heart. Her first "real" job after receiving her Bachelor's at Seattle Pacific, she worked as a Special Education Assistant at ACMA. Inspired by the art and artists around her at ACMA, she signed up for her first Ceramics class, and then for her Master's in Counseling at Portland State. Prior to her return to ACMA, Aimi was a School Counselor at Hillsboro High School. Outside of work, Aimi enjoys time in the clay studio, running trails, gardening, and watching Marvel movies with her husband and cat, Frank.
