At Amilia, we keep busy. Whether we’re adding new features, tweaking old ones, writing blog posts, or hosting webinars, we’re constantly improving our platform for you and your members. None of this would be possible without Marie-Eve, our HR and Administrative Director.
Marie-Eve is the ice cream of the Amilia ice cream sandwich—she holds this place together. From accounting, to payroll, to ensuring the general wellbeing of Amilia employees, she makes it possible for everyone to do their job. Get to know her better in this interview!
Explain your job at Amilia?
I am the administrative director and HR so I take care of everything from accounting, the arrival of new employees, payroll, insurance, purchasing, and office activities. In other words, I oversee many aspects of the office to ensure that all employees work in a comfortable environment. You could say I'm the "mom" of the office!
What was your last search on Google?
I searched for haircuts ideas! My hair has been long for a while and this week, I had this sudden urge to change it! This is one of joys of being a girl!
What's the wallpaper on your phone right now?
I have a picture of New York City at night because I love the city. It's always exciting to be back in Times Square with the crowds of people, the lights, the restaurants, and the shows on Broadway. I love it! (Suggestion: If ever you go, I recommend the Asian restaurant Hakkasan. It’s delicious!)
What one thing drives you absolutely crazy?
Towels that aren’t folded properly! Yes, I admit; I have a small obsessive-compulsive side! If I see a towel that isn’t folded properly, even if it’s not mine, I can’t help but refold it properly!
You enter an eating contest. What food?
This is easy: Chocolate chip cookies! I’m a real cookie monster. I love cookies!
What word are you guilty of using too often?
I often use the word “Really”. I use it to ask a question, I use it to emphasize something and I often use it in response to a compliment. I really use it to much…really!
What's your favorite thing about working at Amilia?
Definitely the very friendly atmosphere in the office. Everyone works really hard and takes their work very seriously, but it's all done in a relaxed atmosphere. For me, coming to work doesn’t feel like work.
What's your favorite Amilia feature?
It’s definitely the all-in-one aspect of “The Store”. I am the mother of two children, I know what it's like to stand in line to register them for activities and then go wait in another line to order their uniforms or equipment. It is often complicated and time consuming. Amilia facilitates this process and makes the experience so simple and very user friendly.
