What I Do
I am a manager in Accenture’s Risk Management service line, where I help clients create and implement integrated risk management capabilities focused on generating higher economic returns, improving shareholder value and increasing stakeholder confidence. My key areas of experience include fraud management and anti-money laundering, ICAAP, and banking.

In my tenure with Accenture, I’ve worked for a range of clients in the banking, capital markets, oil & gas, and transportation industries.

Day In My Life
I’m currently working with a banking client to identify and resolve an application issue. Our team is analyzing production data to look for patterns, develop hypotheses, troubleshoot and help resolve the client’s challenges.

Outside the Office
I have 2 boys – a 3 year old and 1 year old, which keep me quite busy. I’m quite picky when it comes to food so I’m always on the hunt for new recipes and trying out new restaurants. I like to paint, read and blog in my spare time.

My Advice
Never be afraid to ask for what you want. People are not mind readers. The worst that can happen is for the other person to say no and you’d be in the same place as you were before.
