Salesforce Trailblazer Community Group Leader?

Nope, but I help out with the Denver Admin/User Group fairly regularly.

Favorite Salesforce Feature

Probably the navigation customizations in Lightning that were added this year that allow users to move around tabs and pin things that are most useful to them. Followed closely by List Views.

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

Continuing to improve on usability for less tech-savvy users. Specifically things like List Views and Reports that most users equate to Excel functionality, but of course there are virtually no restrictions in Excel, it’s like a blank canvas 🙂

Fun Facts about me:

  1. After attending my first tech conference ever last year (#TDX17), I was fortunate to be a PRESENTER this year at Dreamforce!
  2. For the past year I’ve been coordinating Salesforce Saturday events in Denver to provide a forum for current and aspiring Salesforce professionals to network and collaborate. It’s been tremendously rewarding and I’m very thankful for Steph Herrera who started the idea in Austin, TX!
  3. I’m a life-long Green Bay Packers fan and generally love the strategy, teamwork, and sportsmanship of American Football. #GOPACKGO
  4. My wife and I love to travel (provided we can find someone to watch our 3 rescue pups). In the past few years I’ve been able to visit Iceland, Malaysia, Croatia, France, Spain, Mexico, and Aruba. We’re looking forward to visiting Costa Rica in 2019!
  5. I’ve recently gotten back into Disc Golf after not playing at all for about 10 years. Its a tremendous community and a great way to get outdoors and be active! Also, science! 🙂

Most Identifies With This Salesforce Mascot:

#TeamCloudy because who doesn’t love goats?! Also, I’m a Capricorn and I love to support the underdogs (undergoats?). Astro and Codey already have enough fans 😉

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

This is minor, but it would be helpful to have more targeted options for email deliverability settings. The only options are All, System, and No Emails, but when testing features with email alerts, it would be great to be able to turn emails on and off on a per object basis.

Fun Facts about me:

  1. Total karaoke addict!
  2. I climbed 311 steps to the top of a London monument.
  3. I rotate between almost 20 pairs of glasses.
  4. I have 2 tattoos that were hand-poked in Iceland.
  5. I haven’t eaten red meat in 24 years.

Most Identifies With This Salesforce Mascot:

Appy, because she’s a problem-solver with cool glasses.

Trailhead

Currently at 300 badges and counting!

Salesforce Trailblazer Community Group Leader?

Yes, leader of the Wellington, New Zealand user group. Since taking on the leadership (approx 2 1/2 years ago), the group has grown significantly and is a vibrant group with large meeting attendance, despite the relatively small size of the city.

Community Cloud

Fun Facts about me:

  1. Has the dream job of Customer Success Manager although not working for Salesforce (her company used the job title and description from the Salesforce CSM role!). Headhunted earlier in 2018, specifically because of being so active within the Salesforce Ohana.
  2. Has presented / spoken at Salesforce events in 3 countries!
  3. Planning next year’s trips around Sydney World Tour, Yeur Dreaming, and DF19!
  4. Established a regular Trailhead Tuesday event because, you know, organising and hosting monthly user group meetings, just don’t take up enough time!
  5. When not immersed in the world of Salesforce one way or another (on Trailhead, organising Trailhead Tuesdays and user group meetings, doing some paid Salesforce work, etc etc), she gives up the rest of her time to help in organising the sport of underwater hockey at her son’s secondary school!

Most Identifies With This Salesforce Mascot:

Cloudy – white and soft and cuddly but also very stubborn 🙂
