About the Speaker:

Ranger Aimee is from rural northeast Missouri, and a summer internship at Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield in Republic, Missouri summer 2010 clued her in to working for the National Park Service (NPS). She graduated from Missouri State University December 2010 with a triple major in History, Global Studies and Spanish, and May 2011 moved out west to pursue her NPS career as a seasonal park ranger at Carlsbad Caverns National Park. A few seasons there, and one at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in Colorado led to a longer position at Muir Woods National Monument in the San Francisco Bay Area where she worked for 3 1/2 years. Ranger Aimee then got her permanent and current position at Lava Beds National Monument in Tulelake, California in September 2016, where she’s been having a blast ever since. She lives in Klamath Falls, Oregon with her husband and one-year old son, and enjoys traveling, cooking and hiking.
