Who Is Milestones HR?


Angie Addison


We are results-focused consultants who enjoy all aspects of Human Resources and the value that solid practices can bring to both individuals and companies collectively. We offer Human Resources Generalist services to companies who need Human Resources expertise but do not require a full time Human Resources presence.

We offer various solutions including serving as an on-site human resources generalist in a short- or long-term capacity, complementing existing Human Resources teams with project work, and/or setting up an HR function and then training existing employees to maintain it.

Angie founded Milestones HR, LLC in 2014 and enjoys working with small- to medium-sized businesses. Angie been fortunate to work in both a Human Resources and an Operations capacity allowing her to become familiar with the inner workings of a company. Angie uses this knowledge to partner with business leaders on how to best integrate Human Resources as a contributing function of the business.

Angie has led the Human Resources function from setting up a Human Resources department from scratch to improving an existing function. The results of her work have included:

  • Creating highly functional, mission-focused Human Resources systems & processes.

  • Managing organizational structure through rapid growth or constriction for various disciplines.

  • Partnering with company leaders to implement recruitment strategies reducing the hire time for needed talent and building a future candidate pool.

  • Securing the right hires by identifying candidate profiles, recruiting, conducting behavioral interviewing, candidate selection, background & reference checking.

  • Creating and onboarding new hires to increase the new employee's ability to acclimate and contribute to the company's goals as well as building retention.

  • Creating or modifying Employee Handbooks which align with the actual business practices.

  • Designing and implementing real time, results-focused performance appraisal and development programs.

  • Securing and aligning benefit offerings (health, dental, life, disability, 401(k), Vacation/PTO, etc.) with demographic needs of employees, company size, industry and budget.

Professionally, Angie believes that Human Resources done well can add significant bench strength and contribute to business outcomes. She partners with clients by linking arms with them and becoming a part of their team and culture. She holds certifications as a SHRM-CP (Society of Human Resources Management – Certified Professional) and PHR (Professional Human Resources). In addition to being a Member of the National Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM), she is a former Board Member for the Greater Madison Area Society for Human Resources Management (GMA SHRM). 

Personally, Angie is an avid nature lover!  She enjoys the beauty and peace nature has to offer via kayaking, hiking, boating, and gardening whether it is solo or with her family. She grew up in Lancaster, WI and attended college at UW-Platteville (go Pioneers!) While she has a fondness for Dilbert comics depicting the evil HR Director Catbert and HR cringing scenes from The Office, she is none of those characters.

Client Feedback

Angie has been a tremendous asset and contributor to the Iconica team for over 15 years! I recently engaged Milestones to assist in recruitment for a new position. Angie really helped in clearly defining what our need was and then crafting job postings that attracted a very talented group. We were fortunate to find a perfect fit for our requirements. Milestones saved us countless hours by streamlining the hiring process. I look forward to my next engagement with Milestones!
— Jim Pientka, President and CEO, Iconica
Angie has been a great HR resource. I have used her expertise often when approached by new companies to the region that have questions and need help on human capital issues. She is always helpful, insightful, and very trustworthy.
— Michael P. Gay, CEcD, Sr. Vice President of Economic Development Madison Region Economic Partnership (MadREP)
Hiring Angie Addison to manage our Human Resource department has had a positive impact on the success of our company. She is a gifted individual who has helped us manage our staff, refine our HR policies, and recruit talent who are well matched to our needs. She deeply understands our company culture and is a joy to work with. I highly recommend her both as a professional and as a person. I trust her experience and advice and we do not make any major HR decision without her wise council.
— Kathleen Marsh, CEO & Co-Founder Musicnotes, Inc.
Professionally, I have worked side by side with Angie in mutual client situations where she brought a great deal of value. She is one of the few HR professionals that can dissect issues, get to the root cause and put it back together in a way that makes sense for the business. I have seen her work through various complex issues from rapid company growth to “right sizing.” She is a strategic thinker who outlines all of the “what ifs” and puts together plans which gives owners a peace of mind. She delivers value to businesses with both her expertise and heart-she takes tough decisions personally and puts the business in front of herself. I trust Angie’s business and human resources judgment in any situation a business owner could encounter. She is a true HR generalist (benefits, hiring, employee relations and more) and a strategic business partner.
— Nathan Brinkman, CFBS, President Triumph Wealth Management, LLC
Angie helped me build job descriptions that focused on outcomes instead of tasks, which aligned my employees to actively contribute to the business’s success. She then took those descriptions and created performance appraisals that focus on metrics which impact the business. My team is clear on how their job results affect our client’s satisfaction and the business holistically. In addition, Angie participates in on our performance appraisals to help foster conversation, set goals, and improve our overall work practices & culture. I’d highly recommend Angie’s services to any business owner.
— Anne Pientka, RN, BSN, Owner Radiance Skin Therapy & Laser Therapy
Angie has worked with our company since 2014 providing HR consulting services. She initially conducted an audit of our existing procedures and documentation and helped ensure we were on track. Since her initial work she has helped our company handle benefits, recruiting, compliance and other HR duties. In addition, she provided training for our staff on interviewing procedures and questions. We found Angie to be very knowledgeable and hardworking, and she interacted well with our staff. She helped our company transition from a staff of 40 professionals to a large employer with a staff exceeding 50 across multiple offices.
— Ken Baumgardt, P.E., President & Co-Founder Edge Consulting Engineers, Inc.
Angie has been a huge asset to our company. A highly motivated individual that is professional yet down to earth. I believe all of our employees feel she is easily approachable and truly cares about them from a personal and professional perspective.
— Andrew Bradley, Partner Edge Consulting Engineers, Inc.
I have worked with Angie for almost ten years; during which I have always watched her demonstrate a “can do” attitude. Every project that Angie takes on is approached with a blend of enthusiasm and tenacity that has consistently proven effective in producing results. When addressing employees or coaching managers on how to address their reports, Angie has a unique ability to identify the behaviors and/or issues that need to be addressed and can effectively establish what improvements are needed. Angie has a thorough understanding of the laws, rules, regulations, and best practices as it relates to Human Resources and Benefits Administration. Angie has the answer when asked the what’s and how’s of her discipline. On the rare occasion that she doesn’t know the answer, she will quickly find the answer through her network of resources. Angie benefits all organizations she works with and provides value that extends to employees, managers, and the business itself.
— Aaron Gibbons, President K&M Concrete
Angie was an invaluable asset in our search for a new manager of human resources for Iconica. She helped us drill down on our exact needs and then crafted that image into a job posting. She saved hours of our time by reviewing resumes and then pre-screening candidates. She then provided a succinct summary for those she suggested for interviews. I would recommend Milestones to any firm needing assistance in hiring.
— Kathy Pientka, Operations Manager, Iconica
