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 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.

Favorite Salesforce Feature

Service Cloud

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

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 🙂

Salesforce Community Group Leader?

No

Favorite Salesforce Feature

Omni-Channel Presence and Routing in Service Cloud! The routing and prioritization of cases make life easier for agents and keep SLA’s intact.

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

Getting more things out of classic and fully up and running in lightning. Knowledge is a prime example of a feature that would be incredible if so much of it didn’t get left in classic.

Fun Facts about me:

  1. I went back to college at 36 to try and earn my degree! I hope to graduate in 2020 or 2021
  2. My favorite book is John Steinbeck’s East of Eden, my favorite movie is O Brother Where Art Thou and my favorite band is the Old 97’s
  3. The writings and spoken word of Henry Rollins best known for being in the band Black Flag have been a huge influence on my life.
  4. My music tastes range from alt/texas/outlaw country to punk to trip-hop/downbeat.
  5. I just started my Salesforce career at 37 and it is my 3rd career path since I was 17. I spent almost 10 years in the Navy where I was a Persian linguist then 10 years in IT support.

Most Identifies With This Salesforce Mascot:

Cloudy! I like that her bio says “Cloudy brings out the best in everyone and encourages you to tap into your own unlimited potential.” We all need someone like that in our lives.

Salesforce Community Group Leader?

No

Favorite Salesforce Feature

Flow! I can’t wait for the upcoming reboot, but to be honest, everything I can’t do with flow keeps sending me back to thinking about getting serious about learning to write, instead of just read, code.

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

I’m with SteveMo on this one. (https://success.salesforce.com/ideaView?id=0873A0000003aQvQAI) I wish Salesforce would cross some of the low-hanging fruit off their to-do list. I’m excited to see what’s behind Brett Taylor’s initiative lately in acknowledging the Idea Exchange is broken.

Fun Facts about me:

  1. I’m not an Accidental Admin. Everything happens for a reason. I’m a didn’t-know-where-I-was-going-but-hey-look-this-is-clicky Admin. Part of my senior art thesis in college was about how I was comfortable as a Semi-Luddite and a bit of a technophobe. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  2. My partner and I run our home on Agile principles including a Kanban-style to-do board in the kitchen.
  3. My love for puppets is unparalleled. We named our son Henson…
  4. I’ve been homebrewing for about 10 years. I started out in an apartment, which is no small feat and I hope it gives me street cred. See the “Ales” in @ales_force.
  5. I used to be a trained caller for frog varieties of the NorthEastern Illinois region. No, I can no longer demonstrate.

Most Identifies With This Salesforce Mascot:

Cloudy! It’s a carry-over from my past life in the New York art scene. Robert Rauschenberg is one of my favorite artists and Monogram is one of my favorite pieces. https://g.co/kgs/e6NjhP
