I am a Director for the Financial Crime, Fraud, and Investigation Services (FFI) practice at Guidehouse with over 20+ years of financial crime experience. Leveraging my experience as a prior regulator and in-house at several of the most prominent banks in the world, I provide clients with tailored risk-based approaches to their toughest compliance challenges. I have extensive experience developing AML/BSA compliance programs including global sanctions, export controls, restrictive measures, software integrations, FinTech, faster/ digital payments schemes, wallets, payment processing, compliance operations, trade finance products and foreign investment expertise.

Most recently, I was the lead advisor to the Payments and Trade business a global financial institution focused on economic sanctions regimes. I have worked on a variety of compliance challenges in-house at global banks and as an examiner reviewed a variety of banks and broker-dealers ranging from $100M to $1B in size. I create, build, and structure compliance organizations from the ground up to develop a best-in AML/CFT and Sanctions programs.

While in-house I have worked on an array of projects, including gap analyses, compliance program reviews, risk assessments, financial investigations, remediation efforts, and transaction reviews. I have provided training to colleagues as well at industry events on AML/CFT and sanctions topics and have authored several papers on emerging financial crime risks.

In my spare time, I love traveling and experiencing different cultures around the globe. When I’m not traveling, I am a personal chauffer to my daughters who participate in over 6 classical dance classes a week in various disciplines – it’s an absolute pleasure to watch them learn and develop their skills.
