I am very interested in the compliance and legal analysis of corporate governance and regulatory areas of business, environmental and real estate law, as well as the energy industry. Compliance begins at the top and spreads throughout the company through guidance, training and audits.
I am a compliance specialist and legal analyst with two Associate degrees in Legal Assisting (aka Paralegal Studies ) one for Litigation Specialist and the other is in General Practice from Tidewater Community College and a Bachelors of General Studies degree with minors in Criminal Justice & Criminology and Consumer Finance from Ball State University. Presently, I am working on my Masters of Jurisprudence in Corporate and Business Law with an additional certificate in Regulatory Analysis and Compliance at Widener University School of Law.
In addition to working for companies like Eli Lilly & Co., JPMorgan Chase and respectable law firms, as a Paralegal and Analyst, I contract compliance projects through my own consulting firm. The type of work that peaks my interest the most is preventing internal fraud and other white collar crimes.
I am also working on my long awaited novel, The Angry Mom. While fiction, it dabbles into some real events and criminal cases with a few heart racing, mind blowing surprises.
