Jessica Macpherson is an inspiring trailblazer who has been making a huge difference in the Australian non-profit space. An ex-pat Kiwi (hailing from the Wairarapa), she founded Melbourne's St Kilda Mums way back in 2009, and has expanded this service to other parts of Victoria. St Kilda Mums coordinate and distribute physical items such as baby gear and clothing to families with new babies and toddlers needing assistance.
St Kilda Mums, Geelong Mums and Eureka Mums all run on Salesforce, and in addition to coordinating the distribution of donations, Jessica also mentors community mums and dads into learning and building their Salesforce skills, introducing them to the Salesforce ecosystem via the St Kilda Mums org, and from there to employment in the wider Salesforce ecosystem.
Last year in the Australia Day honours she was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for her contributions to the community and to the non-profit sector.
In March Jessie was awarded the coveted Golden Hoodie, virtually, at Sydney's World Tour Reimagined. This is the first Kiwi connection to a Golden Hoodie, they are only awarded at Salesforce World Tour events, so this is the closest NZ will get!
Jessie has some amazing insights to share, so please feel welcome to dial in from wherever you live in the world, and hear her story. Deep down she is still a Kiwi at heart...
