This week I learned that I am now a Salesforce MVP!
I know that I was nominated by at least Chris Pifer, Samantha Shain, Paul Ginsberg, and Cassie Supilowski. I appreciate their support, and also everything they have taught me over time. They are an august group. Two are Rock Star Admins and two are existing MVPs (three now, as Sam is also in the 2023 MVP class). It is my a privileged to know, work with, and learn from all of them.
I got here with community support
The Salesforce MVPs are a group of people who are recognized within the Salesforce community as leaders and contributors. It’s a group of people who, in addition to our day-to-day work, also support other people’s work and learning.
For me that looks like posts about Salesforce here, participating in Salesforce.org’s Commons program, and generally supporting people I meet along the way. While I contribute as I’m able, my own contributions are fueled by support from my nominators and others.
Sam, Cassie, and I are all leaders the Commons’ Data Generation Toolkit project. Chris has been a friend and colleague nearly my entire adult life – we often remark that we’ve had about every possible professional relationship. I met Paul planning Nonprofit Dreamin’ a couple years ago and we continue to talk regularly about life, Salesforce, and nonprofit (in no particular order). In other posts I have talked about the influence mentors had on my work.
Looking forward to more
Being a Salesforce MVP gives me access to tools, events, information, and opportunities that are new to me. It also comes with the expectation of continuing contributions to the community.
The good news for me is that I generally like contributing and supporting others. I am looking forward to continuing to advancing my personal projects, contribute to Data Gen Toolkit, presenting at events, and generally helping other succeed.
If your group needs a speaker reach out and let me know. I love to talk about Salesforce, data, the web, career paths, and just about anything you find me writing about here.
