Principal, CISSP, CISA, CPA


I provide cybersecurity consulting services to financial institutions, governments, and family offices. My specialties include cybersecurity risk management framework implementations, information security general control audits, regulatory reviews (GLBA, FDICIA/Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX 404)), application security assessments, and developing policies and procedures such as information security programs, incident response plans, and disaster recovery plans.

In addition, as clients look for assistance in identifying unknown areas of concern, I follow our team’s seven-point cybersecurity assessment process, as well as general cybersecurity consulting in a variety of areas.

I originally planned to be a financial auditor, following in the footsteps of many CPAs in my extended family. As I began to learn about the world of IT auditing, I was quickly drawn to the world of cybersecurity in my initial work at Plante Moran and have never looked back. I enjoy working with clients year-over-year, continuing conversations outside IT audits to help with security questions as part of ongoing discussions.

I received a B.A. in accounting and information systems and an M.S. in accounting and information systems from Michigan State University. I’m also a member of ISACA-Western Michigan Chapter, FS-ISAC and the MICPA.
