Having received a BA with First-Class Honours from the University of Tasmania and an MPhil (Dean's List) from the University of Queensland, Aimée commenced her doctoral research in English at the University of Cambridge in 2005. During her time at Cambridge, Aimée also served as President of the Cambridge University Australia and New Zealand Society.
Aimée's career since her postgraduate study has centred on communications: first in the non-profit world, where she held senior roles in charities focusing on culture, education and international development, and then in the private sector. She now runs her own business as a communication and integral coach, based in London but working globally. Her extremely varied work supports clients, from young people to internationally recognized leaders, to speak with confidence and clarity, and to cultivate richly expressive lives.
Her long-standing passion for language and storytelling led Aimée to Columbia University in New York, where she recently took short courses in Narrative Medicine with the University's College of Physicians and Surgeons. She was a member of the National Advisory Council for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, has been a London reader for the Guardian First Book Award, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
