As a leader in the firm’s information technology consulting practice, I assist companies with various cybersecurity assessments including cyber risk assessments, data privacy, PCI compliance, and IT infrastructure. With more than 20 years of experience, I advise clients on cybersecurity risks, IT audits, forensic technology and incident response, and enterprise risk mitigation in the financial institutions, not for profit, manufacturing, and government sectors.
Since I’ve always been energized by the opportunity to help others, this career is the perfect blend of my servant nature and my industry expertise. In our cybersecurity practice, we collaborate with management teams and business owners who want a guarantee of high network security. Our clients appreciate that we don’t hope or guess for best outcomes, rather we work every day to put our strongest efforts into securing their organizations.
I’m often asked to present on security-related topics for webinars and conferences throughout the year and available to speak to a variety of audiences as requested. I’m a member of the AICPA, the MICPA, the ISACA, and the ACFE. My certifications include Certified Information Systems Auditor, Qualified Security Assessor, Certified Fraud Examiner, and CPA. I have a B.A. in mathematics from Grand Valley State University and a BBA in accounting information systems from Eastern Michigan University.
While we’re in the business of high stakes, I try to take a relaxed approach with clients and with my team. Whether I’m amusing my staff in Michigan by eating three super burritos or keeping the mood in Colorado light with, in my opinion, my great sense of humor, I want to keep building great teams of professionals who can tackle any clients’ situation.
