For all of my adult life, I have worked or volunteered at a nonprofit, service organization. At KELL I enjoy the challenges of working with a variety of organizations that invest in lives and missions all over the world. Whether it’s an educational organization, one that uses the arts to help children establish healthy lives or an organization that provides medical care after a major disaster, I love the satisfaction that at the end of the day, I was able to help someone. That’s why I entered the nonprofit world in the first place.
Prior to KELL, I had the pleasure of helping to start an international disaster relief and community development organization. With a very small staff, we were always seeking ways to save time so that we would be free to think more about moving the organization forward and ultimately serving more people. Salesforce became a central part of my job and a hub for internal and external communications.
On nearly every project I’ve worked, I’ve been told, “do you realize how many hours you just saved me?” I have always thought that it’s amazing that small nonprofits with few resources have access to a platform that major corporations utilize. Salesforce offers these small organizations the ability to efficiently manage their resources and save time so that they can spend more time working toward their mission.
At KELL I truly feel valued and that my background working with small nonprofits means something to KELL and to the clients with whom I’m paired. I often feel as if I was uniquely chosen for a particular project, and I believe our clients feel valued because of that care and effort as well.
I’ve also been pleasantly surprised that we have a staff that is as diverse as the nonprofit world and their missions. And yet KELL has created a family atmosphere that when we come together there is great respect for who we are, with all of our differences and all of our similarities.
