Aimee Sipe

Program Director


Aimee Sipe was the first full-time hire for Both Hands in August 2011. Alongside JT, she wore many hats as the organization grew. She served as Director of Operations for 10 years then moved into an advisor role for 2 years before rejoining the team as Program Director in March 2024.

Adoption and orphan care has been close to her heart since she was 5 years old and learned a schoolmate had been adopted. She has been on numerous mission trips and supported missionaries since she started earning an allowance. She studied Organizational Communication and Global Studies in college with the intention of working for a nonprofit.

While working her way through college at a local pizza restaurant, through divine intervention, Aimee met Both Hand’s board members – Greg and Tracey Murtha. After hearing about Both Hands’ mission, she knew she would work there one day.

Aimee served as Secretary for the Middle Tennessee Orphan Alliance board for 10 years, and was a founding board member for Tennessee Alliance for Kids, where she served as a board member for 5 years and chairperson for 2 years.

Aimee and her husband Ryan live in East Nashville with their two children – Sierra and Nate. Together, they coach their daughter’s soccer team and are teaching their kids to love Jesus and to live a life of adventure.
