Meet Gemma!

Founder of Ladies Be Architects, proud mother, and 2x breast cancer survivor

Salesforce isn’t just software. It is a platform with an Ohana that empowers me to show my daughter, Mollie, and other working women in tech that there are no boundaries to the impact you can have on your community and career, even while battling an illness.

Who I Am

I am a cheeky 16x-certified Salesforce Architect and Trailhead ranger with 330 badges and many “Game of Thrones” action figures. I am one-half of a Salesforce-crazed couple who loves using my skills to give back to my community —  an extension of my friends and family — and sharing my personal life with others via my blog.

How I Got Here

My marriage to Salesforce began in 2008 and since then has been another happy dimension to my life. I met my husband, Chris, through our mutual love of Salesforce, and my love for trying new things drives my successful career at Bluewolf, and previously at Capgemini, FinancialForce, and small consulting firms.

Where I'll Go

I hope to conquer my Certified Technical Architect journey by the end of 2019. I will continue advocating for working moms by providing proper training via Salesforce Supermums, and by fighting for and celebrating every female architect via @ArchLadies, fellow breast cancer survivors, and my life with my family by my side.
