Aimee on Good Morning America

Aimee Copeland is an adventurous 24-year-old from Snellville, GA.  She attended UGA as an undergrad and is currently studying humanistic psychology with a focus on eco-psychology at the University of West Georgia.

Aimee’s otherwise private life took a public turn when she encountered an accident in early May of 2012.

What began as a beautiful time in nature with friends turned tragic when Aimee encountered an equipment malfunction while playing on a homemade zip line.  She contracted a type of flesh-eating bacteria called necrotizing fasciitis from an open cut in her leg that came in contact with the bacteria after she fell.  All of Aimee’s limbs were amputated and she experienced failure of her five major organs.

After months in the hospital, surgeries, rehabilitation, and physical therapy, Aimee is perfectly healthy and working on a second masters in social work. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia and stays busy with her graduate studies, her internship, and traveling for motivational speaking engagements.

Aimee currently serves on the Board of Directors of Friends of Disabled Adults and Children and Tools for Life, which are non-profit organizations devoted to helping people with disabilities. She also acts as CEO of Aimee Copeland Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization she launched in 2017. Aimee has earned a Bachelor of Science in psychology from the University of Georgia, a Master of Arts in psychology from the University of West Georgia, and a Master of Social Work from Valdosta State University. In addition to her work as a motivational speaker and author, she practices individual psychotherapy in Atlanta as a Licensed Master of Social Work.
