Samantha is a Remote Project Management Administrator and joined the PMG Team about seven months ago.
I am originally from St. Paul. I spent a couple of years living in Salt Lake City. I have a Bachelor or Science in Gender Studies (the study of people with an emphasis on gender, class and race).
What are your main responsibilities as a Remote Project Management Administrator?
I find hotels for new client projects and during existing projects if need be. I book all project lodging for PMG technicians and conduct exit interviews with PMG technicians once they finish a project. I also send safety quizzes to new PMG technicians.
How did you learn about the opportunity with PMG?
Linked In. I was looking for a job and every morning I would look through positions on the site.
What do you like most about your job?
I like that I’m able to do the same thing every day but, at the same time, I find I’m also challenged with something new every day. I also like how our team is small, confident and works well together. I like how I can ask questions at any time and I will be able to get an answer. I also like that my boss is confident in me because it makes me feel confident in myself.
What do you like most about working for PMG?
I like how PMG takes the time to talk with their employees, makes them feel safe and offers growth opportunities. I like all of the fun events and how the company feels like a family.
What are some hobbies you do in your free time?
I love baking. My chocolate cake is amazing, but I really like my Hummingbird cake. I also like hanging out with my family especially for dinner at my parents on Sundays.
Where is the best place you’ve traveled and why?
Salt Lake City. I lived there for four years and while there, I was able to discover who I was. I was able to explore my interests and challenge myself. I ended up lobbying on Capital Hill and got a bill passed. I was able to get free feminine hygiene products on my college campus. I was really able to explore who I was.
What celebrity/inspirational person do you admire the most?
Audrey Hepburn. I find it intriguing that there isn’t anything out there that makes her sound like she was a bad person. She was always willing to help people out and had the best intentions. She always took on people’s responsibilities and lead by example. She loved love and always wanted people to be happy.
What did you want to be when growing up?
A dolphin trainer because I really liked dolphins. When I was 9, I went to the zoo with my dad and I remember watching the dolphin show. I told him I wanted to be a dolphin trainer and for the next 4-5 years, everything in my life was about dolphins and figuring out how I could become a dolphin trainer.
You’re happiest when…
…when I’m with my sister because she laughs at all my jokes and always has my back.
What advice would you give to a recent new hire at PMG?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions and write everything down. Even if you don’t think it’s necessary, write it down.
What animal describes the “work you”?
Maybe a Husky because huskies are team players, hard workers and goofy.
