A little more about me…

My passion for technology started in pre-school when I begged my mom for the opportunity to take a computer class. Fortunately, she let me, and since then, I’ve continued to learn and grow my knowledge of all things technology related.

In college, I received a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration only after taking a computer science class and swore off programming forever! In my first job, I then saw the real-world applications of programming and the problems it could solve. After that, I self-taught myself nearly everything I know about software development. This balance of business and technology knowledge has allowed me to bring a unique and balanced perspective to the challenges companies face when implementing technology used by all departments of an organization.

In the first part of my career, I managed all facets of a Salesforce deployment inside a large enterprise company. Unlike most companies, I didn’t sit in the IT department, but instead, I was embedded on the same floor as the sales team. This small detail of desk location was invaluable as it allowed me to deeply understand the way salespeople work and the challenges they face daily.

The second part of my career shifted to application development on the Salesforce platform. Here I have been the lead developer, architect, and CTO of Geopointe and then Ascent Cloud. In these roles, I oversaw two of the highest-rated apps on the Salesforce AppExchange, Geopointe and LevelEleven. I have worked with hundreds of companies to understand their challenges and how we, as a partner, could help them improve the adoption and value they are receiving from the Salesforce platform.

I have always enjoyed teaching and sharing my knowledge, and now I’m taking all of this experience to help other companies maximize the value of their Salesforce purchase. Users of Salesforce often say they love it or they hate it. Part of the reason for this is that Salesforce is so customizable that it allows people to build great solutions and processes, but this flexibility can also lead to overly complex and flawed implementations. I want your users to say they love using Salesforce. That’s a bold claim, but I think we can do it.

When not working or learning about new technologies, there is a good chance I am exploring a city on foot, perusing museums, or sipping coffee in a cute little coffee shop.
