We asked few questions to Holly for you to know her better. Here are her answers 🙂

Have you been to France before?

This is my first time in France, and I’m very excited to create some new memories here! Up until now though, one great impression I have of France and French culture is from my favorite chef in San Francisco, Dominique Crenn. She is originally from Brittany, a huge inspiration, and I love both of her incredible French restaurants.

Is there something you want to eat when you will be in Paris?

I don’t even know where to begin with this question. French Macarons are probably my favorite dessert in the world, so the opportunity to eat them in France is amazing. I can’t wait to try them everywhere. I’m also very excited to try lots of great French cheese, wine, bread, and every single pastry I can get my hands on!

Can you share a fun and unknown (of the many) fact about you, your youth or whatever you would like to share with us?

I met my husband at a dive bar in San Francisco and we exchanged contact information because he told me his office had event space, and I needed a place to host a User Group Meeting. Always thinking about the community! 🙂


If you are as excited as we are to listen Holly’s keynote and talking with her about Salesforce community, do not be late on the 17th!
