What is your role at Bridgepoint? As a Senior Salesforce Consultant, I help companies get the most from their Salesforce.com investment. And I love it!

How did you decide upon a career in consulting? And what attracted you to Bridgepoint? I got hooked on Salesforce in 2011, and had often entertained the idea of one day going into Salesforce consulting. When I found out that Bridgepoint was starting up a brand new Salesforce Consulting practice last year, I felt like it was a perfect opportunity for me. Bridgepoint’s terrific reputation, people and culture made it even easier to make the leap!

What’s your favorite aspect of your job? I like that no two projects are the same. It keeps work interesting!

What gets you excited about going to work each day?  I like solving problems. And did I mention that I’m hooked on Salesforce? To be able to use Salesforce to help clients solve thorny business problems gets me excited to go to work every day.

What do you like to do in your spare time? What are some of your hobbies? My awesome kiddos are now grown, so I miss my days as a “band mom.” But it gives me more time for reading, volunteering, travel and being on the lake. Spending time with my kids is still my favorite thing to do.

What is one fun fact that would surprise people? I used to play drums and was a member of the Marching Owl Band (MOB).
