Lead Solution Engineer
Salesforce (Apr 2014 – Jan 2016)

In my first role at Salesforce, I worked alongside Sales and Product teams to develop solutions to customers’ most challenging business problems using the Salesforce Platform. In this role, I developed a focus on Sales Cloud products and solutions. A desire to help drive the go-to-market strategy and shape the future roadmap led me to a role in Product Marketing. 

Engagement Manager
Bluewolf, an IBM Company (2012 – 2014)

As a consultant, I traveled globally to manage the implementation of Salesforce for more than 50 clients, including American Red Cross, Berkshire Hathaway, Harvard Business School, Sprint, Stanley Black & Decker, and Sunnova. My passion for the Salesforce platform led me to pursue a product and solution-focused role at Salesforce.

Senior Manager, Customer Insights
Lenovo (2008 – 2012)

I managed the customer intelligence hub for Worldwide Marketing. In order to unlock and continuously improve this critical resource, I drove the implementation of Salesforce and marketing automation globally to increase productivity for sales and marketing. This experience led me to attain my first Salesforce certification and seek a consulting role to help other customers implement Salesforce and related cloud applications.
