My passion for the nonprofits began when I was 10 and wanted to help save the manatees. In that endeavor, I was introduced to nonprofits and the vital role they play in our world. This shaped my perspective and as such, I’ve worked my entire career in the nonprofit sector, ranging from grassroots organizations to statewide policy advocacy teams. Within those roles, I have worn many hats (including Accidental Salesforce Administrator) which provided me with a global understanding of the barriers nonprofits face and ultimately how Salesforce can help.
Five years ago I was introduced to Salesforce and was mesmerized by this unique platform and its ability to create powerful yet scalable solutions for our day-to-day processes. It quickly became thefavorite part of my day, and I feel so fortunate that I am now helping others use Salesforce to transform their overall operations to take their missions even further. The icing on the cake is that now I get to also work alongside a dedicated group of individuals who are fueled by the same passion.
What’s something you like about the Salesforce technology?
What don’t I love about Salesforce technology?!? That’d be a shorter list! I love its sheer power to automate mundane (yet also complex) processes to work smarter and maximize impact with limited resources. It truly is a blank slate and can be customized to fit the unique needs of each organization – and you don’t need to be an IT expert to use it!
Why do you like working for KELL?
KELL is unlike any other place I’ve worked at. My colleagues are here because of their own personal passions to help nonprofits succeed through Salesforce. It’s not a competitive environment, as the overall view is that everyone– and I mean everyone – is supportive and wants to help you succeed because that’s when our clients succeed. That combined with the fact that the folks at KELL are the best of the best in this industry and are always striving for the next best idea, which fuels me to continually challenge myself. I truly love coming to work every day and that’s a tribute to KELL and my colleagues.
