  • Pam Carey brings 15+ years of marketing experience to Sercante. With 5+ years of Pardot experience and the Salesforce Pardot Specialist and Consultant certifications under her belt, Pam is excited to be part of the Sercante team helping customers be successful in their chosen tools, especially Pardot. In her previous roles, Pam's marketing system repertoire led to Marketo and after 7 years, she was tasked with the changeover to Pardot. Starting with some formal basic training, Pam then took on self-learning, dubbed herself as the account admin, and became the go-to resource to train colleagues, handle lead management, create automations to solve business needs, and more. Outside of work, she enjoys the corniest of "Dad jokes," fancy cocktails, gardening, reading, hiking (while watching out for bears!), and more with hubby, Kevin, and her favorite fuzzies, Maddie and Finnegan. Every day, Pam strives to learn from her incredibly talented team members and the greater Salesforce community. But most importantly, her goal is to help others move forward quickly with the right answers and strategic solutions.
