Who We Are
Founder | Head Geek
I love geeking out to data. I’m one of those freaks that loves deduping and performing magic with Excel formulas. One of my favorite data memories was back in college, working at a shark lab in the Bahamas. While the rest of the team was outside in the blazing sun dealing with an overflowing septic tank, the Shark Doc had me holed up in the air-conditioned lab entering and analyzing years worth of field data logs that had been just sitting on a shelf. While the lab was excellent at collecting the data out in the field, it didn’t have a way to do anything with that data. That day had me rethink what I wanted to be when I ‘grew up’.

Salesforce Consultant | Bug Smasher
I’ve spent my entire career with nonprofits–from fundraising and communications, advocacy and program delivery to consulting with dozens of organizations on the same. I geek out over all the ways supporters can engage with the mission and how tech can–and sometimes even can’t–make that as easy and effective as possible. And I’ve rarely met a technical puzzle that I won’t tackle!
I am proud to be an active nonprofit community member. I have been a Salesforce MVP since 2019, lead a local Trailblazer Community Group, and co-lead the popular Nonprofit Salesforce How-To Series. The tech is fun and useful, but it’s the people that make this work so great.
I’m also a bat-loving Master Naturalist, avid explorer of new places–real and imagined in books– boardgamer, and crafter (ask me about Knitforce). I was a bi-coastal gal for 40+ years, but now I live in the midwest with my partner and two ridiculous cats.

Salesforce Consultant | Flow Fanatic
Ever since the first job where I had back-end access to any kind of software, I’ve enjoyed (and sometimes been yelled at for) poking around and figuring out what the program can do, what data is stored and how to manipulate it. I got my start with Salesforce like so many others: I was the accidental admin because no one else at the organization wanted to deal with our database, and I thought it was fun. I’ve been working in the Salesforce ecosystem since 2011 and as a Salesforce consultant since 2016, primarily with nonprofits. I’ve been mildly obsessed with Flow for years; sometimes I think back on the first one I ever built and wish I could overhaul it. I sure hope someone has refactored that monster.
When I’m not poking around in Salesforce, I’m an avid reader; most recently I’m on a speculative fiction binge. I love sailing and traveling, and I’m trying to get back into cycling. I also spend a fair amount of time at my sister’s farm; I can tell you far more than you ever wanted to know about dairy goats and their babies. I live in Seattle with a cranky calico cat.

Office and Data Assistant
Carmen is the Administrative Assistant here at Data Geeks Lab. I play an integral role in keeping client projects on track as the Administrative Assistant. I also handle data entry for some of our clients, which helps me to improve my Salesforce skills to support the rest of the team.
I’m a stay-at-home mom with two wonderful boys (who are besties with TJ’s kiddo!). I love cats, and traveling, including to visit my family in El Salvador.
I’m a “geek” bookkeeper, who after 27 years of accounting is still passionate about numbers, invoices, and reconciling spreadsheets!
I have two grown children and four grandchildren. I’m now “mom” to a two-year old Golden Retriever named “Rocky” who keeps me busy when I’m not working. I enjoy gardening and being outdoors.
