I've always been in love with the non-profit world. In high-school I participated in volunteer trips, my undergrad was in international development, and I completed a post-grad in Fundraising and Non-Profit Management. For me, what's most important in everything I do is the "why" or "purpose" behind it. I feel very lucky to be able to work with so many organizations because what gets me out of bed in the morning is knowing their work is making the world a better place.
What's something you like about Salesforce Technology?
Having worked for Salesforce for almost 4 years I'm certainly biased, but I strongly believe that technology is one of the best equalizers of our time. Non-profits have unique challenges, such as limitations on spending and innovation (queue Dan Pallotta's Ted Talk.) What I love about Salesforce is that it provides an enterprise-level solution to organizations, which fundamentally puts non-profits on an equal playing field. I've worked with hundreds or organizations to advance their impact and mission with Salesforce, and it never ceases to amaze me that regardless of your size, mission, program type, etc, Salesforce delivers.
Why do you like working for KELL?
Everyone at KELL genuinely cares about the organizations they work with. There's an altruist commonality among us, and I believe this really shows through in our work. We have all worked in the non-profit and education industry before joining KELL which gives us a deep understanding of our clients' needs and how best to accommodate.
