What is your role at HomeStars?
My official title is Salesforce Systems Supervisor, but I’m the acting Sales Operations Manager.
In my role, I lead the sales support team through the everyday needs of the Sales and Customer Success team. Manage our Cloud softwares and various third-party applications, as well as work collaboratively with other departments on technical infrastructure projects.
What makes you excited to come to work every day?
The wonderful people I work with. Our culture of learning, curiosity and honest feedback motivates me to face the many challenges a dynamic department like mine faces. Time really flies, there’s never a dull moment here.
How do you stay up to date within your evolving industry?
I use various resources to stay up to date in my industry, I read blogs daily, as well as participate in local associations and virtual communities. I continue to learn through various online courses and work to keep all my certifications current.
As a child what was your dream job?
As a child, I wanted to be the first female president of Argentina. All Argentinian presidents were lawyers, so at that time in my life that meant becoming a lawyer.
If you were an animal, which one would you be and why?
I would probably be a beaver. Beavers are always planning for the future, they form families and help the local ecosystem. Plus I love Canada and they’re our national animal.
What fictional place would you want to exist and why?
Hogwarts, of course!
