Professional Biography

Prior to joining the Center on Aging at KSU, Dr. Fox taught lifespan human development and family science courses at the University of Utah. During this time, she also worked in the Utah Department of Health as the Developmental Screening Coordinator for the state and collaborated with the Utah State Office of Education and United Way of Utah County to promote optimal care and education in early childhood. After a shift in her teaching, research, and community engagement interests to the health and well-being of older adults, Aimee decided to continue her education by earning a doctoral degree at Colorado State University in Applied Developmental Science with a focus on adult development and aging. She is actively involved in the Gerontological Society of America, serving in the Emerging Scholar and Professional Organization, as well as in community programs for older adults, such as the Alzheimer’s Association and her local Extension offices. Dr. Fox is currently a teaching assistant professor of gerontology and is excited to continue supporting older adults and family caregivers through her teaching, research, and community involvement.
