Photo of Aimee Whalen-Meyer Aimee Whalen-Meyer joined the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in May 1991. Her career at JPL has taken her from working directly with the Magellan Science Team in her role as Science Secretary to working jointly with the Mars Pathfinder Project in 1993 as the Assistant Education and Outreach Lead. In mid-1997, she joined the Stardust Project as the Opportunity and Outreach Manager, bringing a wide range of successful knowledge of education and general public outreach procedures necessary for a successful outreach program. During her tenure, Aimee has independently developed a thematic small bodies exploration outreach group, working to achieve successful partnering between JPL, NASA's Centers relating to small bodies, and the Applied Physics Laboratory at John Hopkins University. This thematic outreach approach has proven to be on the cutting-edge of outreach along with being a tremendous financial benefit for all institutions and programs involved.

She has been the recipient of a variety of group achievement awards ranging from the NASA Group Achievement Award, Magellan and Mars Pathfinder Group Achievement Awards, and the Thomas O. Paine Award for the Achievement of Human Exploration of Mars. In June 1999, she was awarded the SESPD NOVA Award for Leadership and has recently been nominated for the NASA Award for Excellence in the Area of Leadership.
