Amy Rowntree, Human Resources and Benefits Coordinator
With her education in Art history and Psychology, Amy naturally thought about working in a museum or being an art therapist after she graduated. But, a move to San Diego, and a chance meeting with Natalie Viani while they were both out walking their dogs, changed all that.
In her role, there is a diversity of situations and tasks that come up every day through facilitating benefit enrollment and streamlining all on-boarding for our new employees. In addition, she oversees many operational components within the company. Amy is able to apply her passion for creativity and connecting to people, each day in a position that utilizes both!
But her favorite aspect of working with VIA is providing the best assistance she can to the talent VIA Technical matches with companies. She’s on a mission to prove that working with a recruitment firm can and should be a wonderful experience for candidates, and they are joining a group that truly cares for them.
