This month on our blog we are featuring GAMMA’s HR Generalist, Jamie Holmgren. Read the interview below to learn more about Jamie!
What is your job role at GAMMA and how long have you worked here?
I am the HR Generalist and I have worked here 8 months
How did you come to work for GAMMA?
I had taken HR certifications (PHR and SHRM-CP) and was looking for a more HR-centered role in a small company. I applied on Linkedin and have enjoyed it since.
What is your favorite part about working at GAMMA?
The flexibility both professionally and personally. If I have an idea for something we could be doing, it is a quick turnaround time to execution. I also enjoy the personal flexibility as I am not from the area and must do a lot of traveling to see my loved ones. I am given the option to work from other locations as needed to see them.
What are three words you’d use to describe GAMMA?
Fun, Passionate, and Adaptable.
Do you play tennis or pickleball?
I have terrible hand-eye coordination so I don’t really play either sport, but I will always cheer from the sidelines.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?
I like to explore Pittsburgh with my friends and family. I also enjoy spending time with my cats Mr. Biscuit and Cheddar.
What is something that people would be surprised to know about you?
I played classical percussion for over 12 years.
If you were stuck on an island and could only have three items, what would they be?
Sunscreen, a good book, and a lighter.
What is a quote you live by?
Hope is not a strategy.

Favorite place to visit: Saint Joseph Michigan
Favorite holiday: Christmas
Cats or dogs: Cats

Messy or organized: Chaotic Organization. There is a system but if I tried to explain it to someone else it would not make sense.
