  • Unable to finish college and working as many as three jobs at once in the service and nonprofit industries, Maya Peterson took a risk and borrowed money from family in order to enroll in an admin class with Salesforce.
  • Almost six years later, Peterson has 11 Salesforce certifications and is a Salesforce MVP as a consultant at Slalom in Seattle.
  • Now, thanks to the partnership and support of Slalom, the nonprofit Dress for Success Seattle, and other members of the local Salesforce community, all nine women graduated from the inaugural class and will continue with a new cohort this fall.
