Simone has also served as a Salesforce solution implementation partner, helping to design, build, and launch an integrated financial and fundraising system for the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. As part of Cause Craft Consulting, Simone leveraged her nonprofit expertise and SI partner experience to help Feeding America prepare for a major Salesforce migration.

She also holds certifications in Volunteer Management, Data Analytics, Business Analysis, and Salesforce Administration.
