Aimee Shields, MSW

Community Engagement Coordinator for Eastern Washington

Aimee holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work and has spent the past decade working in child welfare.

Aimee’s passion for supporting caregivers began during her time as a DCYF social worker and then as a consultant for DCYF.  Most recently, Aimee enjoyed a long tenure as a foster home licensor for a private agency in Spokane, which resettles and supports refugee children across the world in local, loving families. Aimee also comes to CaRES with personal experience as a kindship caregiver for her teenage nephew.

When she is not working or trying to keep her teen fed, Aimee can be found walking her dogs, bird watching, growing flowers and doing puzzles.
