I joined BrightStep Partners last year after overseeing all of the internal technologies and databases for Save The Bay. I hold a M.S. in Computer Information Systems with more than 15 years of experience in Information Technologies, over 6 years working with Salesforce and over 25 years working with nonprofits. My passion is to empower nonprofit staff to better meet their Organizations' missions by providing solid systems that allow staff to focus their energies on what matters and not on fighting with their data and technology. I love my role as Salesforce Technical Strategist at BrightStep Partners as it allows me the most impact across so many nonprofits that I love. 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 passionate about shark diving and am an avid hiker who is proud to call the Bay Area home. However, above all else, I am Mommy to the most adorable, compassionate and loving 5 year-old boy.
