Fraud is a complex and growing problem, and it comes in many forms. As an investigative forensic accountant (IFA) and a certified anti-money laundering specialist (CAMS), I’m passionate about helping my clients protect their business through fraud prevention tools and strategies.
I lead the national forensic and dispute resolution advisory practice at Grant Thornton. Over the years I’ve worked with criminal and civil cases, testified as an expert witness, and led complex fraud investigations and regulatory reviews.
I also head up Grant Thornton’s national forensic team, which works with regulated entities on anti-money laundering compliance reviews and issues.
Through public speaking and writing, I work to raise awareness of fraud, be it the form of identity theft, money laundering, corruption, kickbacks, employee dishonesty, E-discovery or IT security issues. I’m the technical editor of "Protecting You and Your Money: A Guide to Avoiding Identity Theft and Fraud" published by CPA Canada, and I’m often cited in media articles on fraud awareness.
I’m the proud mom of two boys who keep my husband and me very active and involved in our community. If we’re not spending time with family and friends, you’ll find us playing or cheering at a local park or rec centre.
