Your first 10 licenses with Salesforce are free - but it's free like a puppy. It needs ongoing maintenance and care that you may not have the capacity to do (or do well) internally. When do you know when is the right time to ask for outside help? Where should you look for this help, and what options can you expect?

I am the Founder, and Head Geek, of the Salesforce consulting firm Data Geeks Lab. My passion is to empower nonprofit staff to better meet their organizations’ missions by providing solid systems, allowing staff to focus their energies on what matters instead of spinning their wheels on data and technology. I hold a M.S. in Computer Information Systems with over 10 years of experience with Salesforce (5x certified), over 20 years of experience with Information Technologies, and over 25 years working with nonprofits. With a previous background in Marine Biology, I have served as a docent for Friends of the Elephant Seal and a volunteer researcher for both Bimini Biological Field Station and NOAA/Scripps. As a certified SCUBA diver since high school, I remain obsessed about shark diving and am an avid hiker, who is proud to call the Bay Area home. I know about living your passion, just like my clients.
However, above all else, I am Mommy to the most adorable, compassionate, and loving ten-year-old kiddo.
I first logged into Salesforce at the start of 2009, when the NPSP was still brand new, but was lucky to be coached by pioneers of the Salesforce nonprofit community-based in Seattle. My niche is working with arts organizations using the Salesforce Platform, and I've worked as an independent consultant, as well as with SFDO Partners. I joined the Data Geeks Lab team in Sept 2021.
I was the co-leader of the Seattle Nonprofit User Group until 2014, I ran Hub Office Hours for 5 years, and I've been a Salesforce MVP since 2014.
