For over six years, I’ve been helping educational institutions and nonprofits grow. I love to meet with the people that make these organizations successful and learn how they work, and I love when technology can help them work smarter. To me, that is the best part of my job: discovering the ways that Salesforce can transform someone’s day-to-day, allowing them to focus on their mission and goals. Your systems should work for you, not the other way around!
I get a thrill from truly partnering with an organization and getting to know their strategic plan and goals for the future. I want to help build sustainable practices more than putting out fires or finding a temporary bandage-style solution. More than anything, I just want to help people. People are the beating heart of these schools and nonprofits, and people are who they serve. If I can help passionate people who do good with their work, then I feel great about my own work, and that is what keeps me excited to be in this role.
What’s something you like about the Salesforce technology?
The barrier to entry into the Salesforce world is very low, but there’s always room to grow. They make it easy to get started and easy to learn, but you can always find new and exciting ways that others are leveraging Salesforce technology. It’s a very flexible and scalable system, and can grow with you as you grow in your skillset and experience and as your business grows as well. And of course, you can’t beat the community – from your local user group to the larger global hub, there are amazing people contributing to the platform’s success and helping others.
