Military Office Hours
Transitioning Military Veterans into Salesforce Careers
Kate Perez talks about her Salesforce journey leading up to founding a non-profit that launches military veterans and spouses into tech careers.
Kate Perez is a leader that stands out in the Salesforce community. Kate is the executive director and co-founder of Merivis, a non-profit that trains military veterans for technology/cloud careers. Her journey as a marketing strategy pro by day at top technology companies and a serial volunteer by night.
In this Military Trailblazer Office Hour session, Kate shares how a side passion project in 2015 turned into a successful non-profit that runs over a dozen cohort programs annually. Over 6-weeks, Merivis cohort programs get military veterans the coaching, mentoring, and training they need to earn Salesforce admin certification and skills to pursue their next career in tech.

About Military Trailblazer Office Hours
The primary mission of Military Trailblazer (Tech) Office Hours is to provide a live forum for those who are transitioning in the military, veterans, military spouses, and allies to ask questions and get help while on their Salesforce learning journey.
Besides answering questions and providing assistance, we also invite industry leaders, Salesforce MVPs, ISV partners, and others to speak and provide insight into various parts of the Salesforce platform and ecosystem. While our focus is on Military Trailblazers, all are welcome!
