This polymath…

I am Samantha. I have had some very disparate jobs, from your typical teenage fast food gig to college retail, from antique’s dealer assistant to obituary writer, and from 9-1-1 dispatcher to teacher. I did a few things in between, too. I have learned a lot doing these things.

2 years ago, I stumbled into a job now labeled “Marketing Data & Systems Analyst” (it used to be a longer title!), which introduced me to Salesforce and Marketo. Within a year, I was certified in both, and I have been drinking enough kool-aid since then that my tongue is permanently blue. Worth it.

I am now a Project Manager with Arkus, Inc, where I get to help companies and non-profits of all sizes be successful with Salesforce. Dream. Job.

This blog started years ago a crafting blog, but life happens, and crafts stopped happening. My weeknights and weekends are now spent either playing video games or tackling Trailhead badges. I still can barely ever make up my mind because everything sounds fun or interesting.

Somewhere along the way I decided that I should just accept that for what it is, and then I decided, since I was a writing major, that I should write about it. A lot. On a regular basis.

So this is my attempt at reconciling my interests’ differences.
