Every time when I post a story on my blog it feels amazing to put forth the stories of females who are stepping high in shinning like a star. When I met Ines, my perception completely changed not only towards life but also for Salesforce.
Ines from a very early age was encouraged to contribute in helping her family with daily chores like taking orders at her family shop, being on the counter and assisting in serving. It was her first job and since then she has been doing all sorts of jobs and that is why she is a strong believer of “Work is one piece of the puzzle for fulfillment” and has never been afraid to roll up her sleeves for any work.
She was stimulated to step in Salesforce about 5 years ago when she was assisting a company with the CRM roadmap. Their CEO had experience of how powerful the Salesforce platform can be for the organization. Coming from more of a business transformation background, Ines enjoyed trying to figure out how things work and how can things be optimised for continuous improvement. Relatively quickly she was ‘playing’ in her free time with the Salesforce Fundamentals Workbook. It turned out to be so enlightening for her and soon she could build stuff which actually improved her efficiency, transparency, and collaboration for the business.
She is also thankful to her Success Manager who introduced her to what is today the Trailblazer Community. It really inspired her in knowing the fact of how people help each other and the radiating positive energy this ecosystem possesses. She asked loads of questions in the answers section and that is why now she spends quite a bit of time there and in user groups now as it is her time to give back.
As per Ines, “The Community is the Salesforce Advantage that no other software vendor can compete with.”
Ines feels ecstatic to be working in Salesforce. As an organization Salesforce really lead by example from their 1-1-1 philanthropic model, Trailblazer Community to engage with fellow customers, Answers Community where users help each other, IdeaExchange so you can tell and vote on what new improvements one would like to have, supporting and promoting #EqualityForAll… and the list is endless. Thanks to programmes such as the MVP title which extends the positive impact of achievers to beyond their circle of influence.
Ines feels in one way or another all can leave their ‘footprints on the sands of time’ and she believes it is everyone’s duty to do so. Ines’s aim is to inspire a future generation and she wants to lead by inclusion and equality in everything she does.
She is currently an active collaborator leading Salesforce user groups, listed on the Answers Community leader board, running ad-hoc mentorships as well via The Mentorship Central, bringing the first Salesforce dreamin’ event to Spain as non-profit association (www.dreamole.es), and recently named as Salesforce MVP. She is of firm determination that if she can do this then anyone can, all you need is the drive, willingness to learn from others and get going.
Ines’s achievement does not end here. She is 7 times Salesforce certified.

Ines really enjoys learning, sometimes she is more indulged in the process than the outcome. One does not get surprised when they find out her Signature Themes from The Gallup Organization: Learner, Input, Individualization, Activator, and Intellection.
Her constant flow of inspiration is her partner because of the endless support, drive, and care she gets. She also feels inspired looking at her Grandparents who are incredible, hardworking, kind, caring, proactive, always meaning well to each other and anyone else.
Let’s applaud for Ines who is a strong believer of the fact, “You are the influencer of your life, so let’s make the most of it!”
