In 2015 she was a Writer in Residence at SA Writers Centre. The following year, she was selected for Critics Campus at Melbourne International Film Festival. She’s set to appear as an artist at National Young Writers' Festival in October 2017.

Aimee is a poptimist who digs gender equality, sexual diversity and good mental health. Dancing on stage with Bruce Springsteen didn’t cure her anxiety, but it sure did help.
