Title and Company

Senior Consultant, Nuvem Consulting

Certifications
  • Salesforce Certified Pardot Consultant
Are you a User Group Leader?

Yes! Omaha Women in Tech

Favorite Salesforce Feature

Open API and ability to integrate with almost anything. As a marketer, we are in control of the business much more than we think or have historically been given responsibility for. With Salesforce, I have the ability to peek into everything going on in the organization to better understand my prospects and customers, and their experience with us. It’s a complete game changer, and businesses that are unifying their systems, data, processes, and teams with Salesforce have a unique advantage.

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

I don’t feel like the standard Salesforce object structure supports the goals companies have towards lifecycle marketing. I have a lot of clients with a rational use case to combine Leads and Contacts in list views and reports. I also have clients who need Contact Queues. Customers no longer follow a linear process, which is how Salesforce is built. They are constantly going through a cycle of nurturing, selling, re-marketing, up-selling, cross-selling, and more. It’s difficult for Sales and Marketing to keep up on where people are at.

Salesforce Goal(s) for 2017

To become certified admin and to present at a regional event.

5 Fun Facts about Stephanie
  1. Plan A out of college was to be a political speechwriter. I stumbled on Salesforce during what became Plan E.
  2. I spent several years chasing railroaders across the U.S. as a contractor in corporate communications for CSX, UP and BNSF. I know a lot about railroads. That was Plan C.
  3. Plan D was returning to school to get a Master of Marketing & Communication degree (Plan B was a short stint as a newspaper editor)
  4. I love spending summers on the lakes in rural Nebraska
  5. I’m a mom to two little boys!

Trailhead

Favorite Salesforce Feature

The Debug log is my favorite because it allows me to drill down to uncover the source problems in an org or potential problems in the future in relation to governor’s limits.

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

The errors that I get for Visual Workflow and Process Builder could be more descriptive and it would be better if the error delineated between Flow and Process Builder.

My 2017 goal is to continue growing my Salesforce skills and obtain more certifications.

I’m really enjoying the power of Flows. They’re pretty amazing if you have some complex logic within an application. It’s a very powerful tool.

As much as I love the developer console, it does some odd things like skipping when you scroll through you class that tends to drive me a little nuts.

Process builder and flow! This puts the power of automation in the hands on the admin. Clicks not code!

Quick create. This causes data issues for us where validation rules are ignored and you can’t customize the fields shown on the page and bypasses record type selection. Why do we still have that?!
