My journey with Salesforce and Technology


👋 Hi there and welcome to my little slice of the interwebs. While you’re here, let me tell you a little bit about myself and the motivation behind my blog.

🏡 I grew up in Lexington, Kentucky then moved to Bowling Green to attend Western Kentucky University where I double majored in Computer Science and Spanish, graduating Summa Cum Laude. In college I joined the Spanish Club so that I could spend more time with a girl I liked. It worked out and we got married after graduation, have two wonderful kids, and now call Nashville, Tennessee our home.

🎓 Ironically, my first job out of college was to migrate a company from Salesforce to an in-house CRM that my team was developing. After seeing the power of the platform, I pivoted and built my career around helping companies to adopt and run their businesses on Salesforce.

👨‍🏫 My passion for sharing knowledge, helping people learn, and developing with Salesforce led me to become the Nashville Developer Group Leader, a RAD Women Apex Coach, present at conferences and webinars including Dreamforce, and recognized as a Salesforce MVP in 2016 and 2017.

🏆 I’m also proudly Salesforce Certified, most notably holding the prestigious System Architect, Application Architect, and Platform Developer II certifications.

👨‍💻 By day I’m a Principal Member of Technical Staff on the Trailhead Content Engineering team for Trailhead at Salesforce, creating engaging and fun modules and projects for developers and technical architects to learn leading technologies like Salesforce DX, Heroku, and Lightning Components either online or in a classroom.

✍️ By night I can be found here blogging about my Salesforce exploits, answering #askforce questions on Twitter, or coding on one of many of my open source projects.

👣 I invite you to follow me on Twitter, LinkedIn, GitHub, Salesforce Trailblazer Community, and YouTube where I post tutorial videos that complement my blog posts.
