Meet Anna !

Problem solver, amateur piano player, and a self-taught Salesforce rockstar.

My career’s been shaped by seeing a problem and saying, “Yeah, I can tackle that.” Always saying yes and never stepping away from a challenge has led me on a career path I never would have imagined back when I was an international economics major in college.

Who I Am

A California girl at heart, I moved to Seattle to take on a new challenge in life and at work. I’m a self-taught Salesforce administrator and developer, with a career that has bridged both analytical and technical roles. I learned Salesforce before Trailhead existed, which forced me to find my own answers and understand things quickly.

How I Got Here

Right out of college I wrote a job description for a support desk role and thought, “I could do that.” I asked for the chance to try it and haven’t looked back. I’ve built my career on saying yes to things I have no idea how to do, starting with taking on Salesforce administration duties without ever using Salesforce. I’m where I am today because I believe in saying yes to things that scare me.

Where I'll Go

I’m super competitive, and I’m always trying to be the best I can possibly be. I want to continue to grow my leadership skills since I love influencing both businesses and people as they grow, but other than that, I’ll keep saying yes to new opportunities that come my way, and see where that takes me.
