You’re likely to find this Allison Park resident hitting the slopes at Seven Springs or Hidden Valley in Somerset County, hiking with her lab-mixes Kennedy and Colby in Fall Run Park in Shaler or even biking across a snowy North Park.

When she’s not outside, Piatt is a talent acquisition supervisor at EQT, the downtown-based natural gas production company that has hundreds of open jobs. She’s also helping to spread the word about as a tool that puts EQT in front of job seekers, and showcases the great LIVE, WORK and PLAY options of the 10-county region.
