What does your average day look like?
I usually scavenge for kombucha in the fridge and my day then begins with a couple of stand-up meetings. I’m on two different projects, so I have a multitude of meetings for both of those. I also love to check my emails—it’s very therapeutic.
How did you find out about Silverline and your current position?
I had a co-op with a competitor of Silverline, and that is what introduced me to the Salesforce ecosystem. I knew after I graduated college that I wanted to do something in the Salesforce ecosystem. I applied to Silverline on LinkedIn because I saw the amazing Glassdoor reviews.

Either the wine cooler or the bagels on Fridays. The office decor is so cool—I guess you’d call it “rustic geek.”
