With that, meet one of Amount’s talented team members, Sireze Booker.

Introducing, Sireze.

Sireze Booker - Womxn wednesday

What role do you play on the Amount team?

I am a BSA/AML Coordinator for Amount’s AML Team. 

What’s your favorite thing about working at Amount?

My team! Everyone is so supportive and we all share so many of the same likes and ideas. And not to mention the laughs and jokes. 

What are you most proud of in your career thus far? Why?

I am most proud of taking the leap of faith and leaving Social Services after being in that field for four years and landing a career at Amount. That was one of the smartest moves I have ever made and for that, I am forever grateful for Amount allowing me to join such an awesome company and team! 

How do you “fill your cup”?

I fill my cup by giving thanks to the universe and during COVID, keeping myself grounded by partaking in some of my favorite activities such as listening to music, seeing friends and family (while social distancing, of course) and allowing myself to rest when my body tells me to rest. Before COVID, concerts, concerts, concerts! And traveling. (But I miss concerts so much!)

What advice would you give your younger self?

I would tell my younger self to STAND IN YOUR TRUTH and GO FOR YOUR DREAMS! Never let anyone tell you otherwise or make you feel that you aren’t valued or appreciated in this world. And most importantly, LOVE YOURSELF.

What womxn inspires you and why?

The womxn who inspire me on a daily basis would be my biological mother, my adopted mother and my sister Toya. Those three womxn have been a huge part of my life as a child and adult and are my biggest cheerleaders! They all have shown me what it means to not only be a survivor, but also what it means to be a powerful womxn! Without them, I would not be the young man that I am today and for that I will forever be grateful for them. 

Amount is dedicated to creating a supportive, inclusive workplace. Interested in joining this mission?

Introducing, Sireze.

What role do you play on the Amount team?

I’m a Senior Technical Project Manager and Scrum Master for the Partner Facing team. I’m also the Scrum Master Captain in our new Squad structure.

What’s your favorite thing about working at Amount?

I love the scrappiness of Amount. Previously, I worked on a government-funded project that was much more conservative. It’s exciting to see the speed of change that happens here from a technology and process perspective.

What are you most proud of in your career thus far? Why?

I am really proud of every team that I’ve built or helped to grow. It’s amazing to me to see a group of strangers come together and build great things. I’m proud to facilitate that success.

How do you “fill your cup”?

I run at least four times a week, meditate, and I’m a Reiki Master. I also try to maintain strong barriers between my work and home life.

What advice would you give your younger self?

Listen to your intuition and avoid the people and places that don’t align with your highest self.

What womxn inspires you and why?

To me, leadership is not about necessarily being the loudest in the room, but instead being the bridge, or the one thing that is missing in the discussion and trying to build a consensus from there.

Amount is dedicated to creating a supportive, inclusive workplace. Interested in joining this mission and these talented womxn?
