Jami L. Sentz
Senior Human Resources Manager
Jami L. Sentz leads SME’s human resources group and is responsible for recruiting, benefits administration, compliance, talent development, engagement and retention, and employee relations. With 10 years of experience, she works closely with the leadership team to ensure SME’s policies and practices are aligned with our core values and strategic vision. She serves on the strategic planning committee, and is involved in the planning and execution of SME’s HR related strategic initiatives. Jami also serves as a member of SME’s safety committee, ensuring team members safely return home to their families each day.

Jami’s passion is helping to develop SME’s most important asset - our people. By helping team members reach their fullest potential professionally, their personal lives are in turn enriched. All too often, our personal and professional lives intertwine, even when we might not see it, and helping people work through that is what she enjoys the most about human resources.

Jami holds a Bachelor of Science from Eastern Michigan University and was awarded the SME President’s Award for Excellence in 2017. She has a knack for coming up with creative solutions and has the ability to make tough conversations easy.

Outside of work, Jami enjoys spending time with her family – attending her daughters sporting events, going to the lake, and taking vacations with them as often as possible before they grow up! Her husband is her best friend and their favorite thing to do is to work out at the gym together.
