Aimee holds a B.A. in English from Cornell, plus an M.A. in history and a Master of Science in information science from the University at Albany. Before Hackbright, she worked in academic/research libraries. Most recently, she was the Assistant University Archivist at Stanford, where Aimee helped preserve historic university records and personal papers of prominent faculty (while learning lots of strange/fascinating Stanford history facts.) She realized that working on technical projects gave her a sense of satisfaction far beyond what she got from my day-to-day archivist responsibilities. Aimee started learning Python on her own, but it wasn’t until she heard about Hackbright that she realized a career in software engineering was within her reach. She worked as a backend software engineer at Flixster for a few years before joining Google as a site reliability engineer.
