See my Trailhead Profile
Trailhead was my golden ticket into Salesforce.
How did you get started with Salesforce?
After my fifth child was born with congenital heart disease, I didn’t think I would be able to hold down a full-time job again. My husband introduced me to Salesforce and said I could work from home and still take care of our little one. With the help of Trailhead, our local Women In Tech Community Group, and a few friends, I was soon part of the Salesforce ecosystem.
How has Trailhead helped you?
Trailhead was my golden ticket into Salesforce. Trailhead made it easy to learn the skills I needed to secure my first job.
Have you been inspired to tell others about Trailhead?
I host BAM (Be A Multiplier) workshops in my area and internationally. We just had one in Guadalajara, Mexico where I feel we made a huge impact. We were asked to come back sooner than later.
What does being a Trailblazer mean to you?
To me, being a Trailblazer means that I have a responsibility to give back to my community.
What impact has the Trailblazer Community had on your Salesforce experience?
The Trailblazer Community has had a huge impact on my Salesforce success. My Trailblazer Community friends are always there for me when I need that extra little push. They believe in me when I don’t. I love our community, and I am here to help them as well. I want to see everyone move up—everyone needs to shine.
What message do you have for new Trailblazers?
Welcome to the best community in the world! Starting is the first and hardest step and you’ve already done that. We are here to help you. Please don’t be shy or scared to ask for help—we all have, and everyone is willing and wanting to help. That is the difference between the Salesforce Community and others. Good luck on your Trailhead journey!
