By April 25, 2016

For the month of April, we are proud to highlight the community contributions of Katharine Anderson and Sergey Erlikh. Thanks to Katharine and Sergey for all you do!

Katharine AndersonKatharine Anderson
The Nature Conservancy California Chapter

Two truths and one lie about Katharine:

  1. I was an aunt six times over before I was born.
  2. I took a picture with Bono at Dreamforce…or at least I think it was Bono. It might have been a really good look-alike.
  3. I took a class in Elvish in college, but I don’t remember a word of it.

Why is community important to you? What motivates you to contribute?
The first database I built was an Access database almost 8 years ago now, and I’ve been driven to learn more and more about them ever since. The HUB has been a great resource in my own quest to learn more about new features, best practices, and solutions to my most aggravating problems. I always look for ways to give back, and I find that contributing in the HUB is a great way to do that. It’s great to interact with other nonprofit staff and hear about how they use the system and the issues that come up for them. Additionally, as someone who started in Salesforce as a solo admin, where no one in my office quite understood what I did, I found I could go to the HUB for advice from people who had been there, which was essential to my own professional development.

Manifesta Foundation

Two truths and one lie about Sergey:

  1. I have only one unanswered question in the Power of Us Hub
  2. I can cook any Moroccan tajine dish in 10 minutes
  3. I chased a flock of barracudas on 30 meters depth

Why is community important to you? What motivates you to contribute?
The Power of Us Community is the tremendous source of the collective knowledge, sharing information and experiences enriching me personally and professionally. I am still amazed by amount of incredible and diverse people contributing daily – by asking and answering questions.

I am still learning so much from the community. I want to give back as much as I can and inspire a new generation of Hubbers (especially here, in Europe). I also realise, that one day, I will meet many amazing Hubbers face to face – I am looking forward to that.
