Since her initial work in nonprofits, she has been involved in several nonprofits in various capacities, her most recent work as a Board Member for the Nourish Collective. She founded Girlforce in September 2013, in the Power of US Hub, hoping to connect to other nonprofit women using Salesforce, and to give nonprofit women a place to educate themselves and their peers through study groups and professional and personal development opportunities. From their start in 2013, they have grown from 25 members to thousands!

Random Details and Favorites: I love asking questions that have no answer, igniting passion, wearing flip flops, hula hooping, and crocheting. My children, coffee, trees, and homemade peach ice cream rock my world. The List (of the bucket variety) includes in no particular order: Burning Man, TED, learning to make the perfect mojito, and attending a holy festival of each of the world’s major religions. My passions include helping people find their voice, art in public spaces, community building, and learning. Tell me your story.
Nonprofit Open Source Community Manager, Salesforce.org
Judi started her Salesforce journey in 2006, as a new Director of Operations at a small startup nonprofit dedicated to colorectal cancer advocacy. They were one of the first 500 nonprofits to receive a Power of 10 donation. Prior to joining Salesforce.org, she worked on the Convio Common Ground team and then was a consultant at KELL Partners. She loves to share her joy of all things Salesforce as she learns what the platform is capable of. She holds 6 Salesforce certifications, has presented at Dreamforce multiple times, was co-moderator of the Pre-Hub NPSF Google Group and was in the 2nd class of Salesforce MVPs.
Judi’s passion is community and helping the “accidental Salesforce admin” meet their organization’s mission and solve problems using Salesforce. She lives in southern New Jersey, just east of Philadelphia, with her husband since 1993 and their two young adult daughters. The little free time she has when she’s not answering lots and lots of questions on the Hub is reserved for knitting … the more complex and intricate cables and lace, the better.
