I teach Salesforce, Zoom and Home Business Courses. I am passionate about helping you become a 'Creator in a Consumption World'

I gravitate towards tools and tech that empowers the non-technical to build and create amazing things online.

That is why I was drawn to amazing tools and platforms, such as Salesforce, Zoom, Wordpress, and more.

I am currently creating a series of courses that teach you all of the fundamentals and specifics related to launching your own home business, make money online, and how to build your own brand while building applications and businesses on the Internet.

Before discovering Salesforce, I worked as a Technical Writer, Trainer, and built blogs using Wordpress. Once I found Salesforce, I saw it as the quickest path to building world-class web and mobile applications for businesses and consumers. I've attained 6 Salesforce Certifications along the way: Salesforce Developer, Salesforce Administrator, Salesforce Advanced Administrator, Salesforce Sales Cloud Consultant, Salesforce Service Cloud Consultant, and Salesforce Platform App Builder.
