Senior Solution Engineer – Salesforce
I was born in England of Jamaican parents and emigrated to Canada as a child. I stayed in the same job for a long time because I didn’t know I was able or I would be hired for other jobs.
After changing roles and having a number of unfortunate experiences (where I felt like others were limiting me or had no faith in me) I choose to face failure and I applied for my dream job at Salesforce (spoiler alert, that’s where I work now).
The recent BLM and pandemic has brought out my fearless side. Still exploring it but I changed roles 3 times in 2021, eventually ending up at my dream job.
So many of us are more able then we know and I would love the opportunity to empower others.
