Certified Salesforce Developer
Anna’s passion for using technology to unleash social missions began in 2009 during her tenure as an AmeriCorps VISTA at Shakti Rising, a women empowerment and recovery center in San Diego. From the onset it was clear that a robust, customized CRM could help them reach more people, and also ensure that those they served would not fall through the cracks.
Since her first venture into Salesforce development, she has worked with over 20 organizations to implement and improve their Salesforce systems. With training and certifications in both facilitation and coaching, she brings proven techniques to technology training.
Anna studied Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. Her studies largely centered around alternative energy, as well as utilizing large data sets to analyze policies and social constructs. After graduating from Carnegie Mellon, Anna was offered a Fulbright grant to study waste to energy systems in Namibia. Anna has also had the opportunity to work as a Sr. Analyst at Oberon Fuels, and was a Startup Leadership Fellow.
Anna is actively involved with Citizens Climate Lobby, Run Women Run, and is the founder of The Next Generation of Service. Personal hobbies include snorkeling, rock climbing, and camping. She has also had the privilege to visit 22/53 of the United States National Parks.
Working with Anna is a real honor. She is a brilliant woman with a tremendous amount of passion. She has an amazing understanding of systems and how they work with in structures. She has a great talent in seeing the big picture things that need to happen in order to maximize positive results. Anna also has great follow through and I have always seen her take things to completion I would say if you want to get something done you give it to Anna.

Danielle currently works as the Systems Administrator at Jumpstart for Young Children, with her primary focus being Salesforce administration. In her off hours, she loves to continue working with mission-driven organizations making the world a better place, one database at a time.
She has been involved in non-profits since high school filling a wide range of roles from food pantry stocker to needle exchange educator to house rebuilder and then most recently, as an associate database administrator.
Danielle earned her BS at Carnegie Mellon University where she also started a community service oriented Spring Break trip focused in local Pittsburgh. If you’re curious, ask her how 312 Clorox wipes helped to keep some of Pittsburgh’s residents happier and healthier.
In balance to her indoor computer time, Danielle can regularly be found outside running or biking. Between two cross country bike trips and two shorter solo trips, she’s gotten to bike in 29 of the US states. And in her first 5,000 miles of biking, she only got three flat tires.

[Danielle] was a vital part of the process and delivered on any project that was thrown at her. She is a delight to work with. I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful she is. She works well both in a team and on her own. She’s the most detail-oriented person I know, extremely friendly and helpful. She is sorely missed here.
