Professional Experience -
I am an Attorney and Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE®) with over ten years experience advising clients in the private and public sectors.

It is one that leverages the analytical, writing, verbal communications and management skills that I've continuously developed over the past decade as a trusted advisor and counselor. My job also requires a hybrid knowledge base in both Law and Human Resources management. This allows me to have a direct impact on Agency functioning and employee engagement.
