This month on our blog we are featuring GAMMA's Marketing & Communications Manager, Paige Powers. Read the interview below to learn more about Paige!
What is your job role at GAMMA and how long have you worked here?
I am currently the Marketing and Communications Manager and have been with GAMMA for almost 3 years.
How did you come to work for GAMMA?
How I started at GAMMA is not very exciting, like some others! I was in the market for a new job and applied via Indeed.
What is your favorite part about working at GAMMA?
My favorite part about working is the team dynamic. We all have one similar goal in mind. Of course, we like to have fun, but we all are extremely hardworking.
What are three words you’d use to describe GAMMA?
Three words that I would use to best describe GAMMA are innovative, driven, and lively.
Do you play tennis or pickleball?
Before starting at GAMMA, I actually have never heard of pickleball. Since then, I’ve tried pickleball and really like it, though I’m not very good. I’ve never played tennis.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?
I’m very much a homebody when I’m not working and love to be with my two cats. However, I’m a pretty big foodie and love trying new restaurants around the city of Pittsburgh (and others when I travel). Some of my favorite restaurants are Umami, Fig & Ash, and Mad Mex.
What is something that people would be surprised to know about you?
To be honest, I’m not a very exciting person. I’ve thought long about this and really can’t think of anything that would be surprising.
If you were stuck on an island and could only have three items, what would they be?
If I was stuck on an island, I would probably bring a waterproof lighter, a water filter system, and a knife.
What is a quote you live by?
“We accept the love we think we deserve” – The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Favorite Food: Mexican
Favorite Place: I guess Florida, because I’ve been there so often, but really just love experiencing new places in general.
Favorite Holiday: Well, I would say my birthday but apparently people don’t consider that a holiday, so I would have to go with Thanksgiving.
Cats or Dogs: Well, I have 2 cats, so I obviously love them, but I love dogs so much too.. so I can’t really choose.
Favorite Movie: Don’t really watch movies, but I do love Joe Dirt.
Messy or Organized: I’m a perfectionist so organized.
