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 on both 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 AML Services team, which works with regulated entities on anti-money laundering compliance programs and reviews.
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 was the technical editor of "Protecting You and Your Money: A Guide to Avoiding Identity Theft and Fraud" published by CPA Canada, and work on various projects to help raise awareness on fraud and human trafficking
