Amelia came to Talent Retriever after working in healthcare as a Human Resources Manager. She was driven to the idea of recruiting because of the connections she made while working with new hires at her previous job. The sense of community outreach and collaboration necessary to connect the right people to the right job is inspiring, and something upon which Talent Retriever bases its core values. It makes perfect sense for Amelia to have found her way to the TR team.
She received her BA in International Affairs from the University of Maine, Orono, actively participating in the UMaine Singers and Chi Omega. After serving two years in the Peace Corps in Burkina Faso, West Africa, Amelia became invested in learning about new people and different cultures wherever she went.
On the weekends, Amelia enjoys spending time in nature, reading, and cuddling with her twenty-pound cat Fred. She also participates in a local community theater group called Voices of Hope and attends a fire spinning and breathing festival twice a year.
