Proudest Career Moment
“My proudest career moment is being able to look back at the 14 years of my career and see the positive impact I have had on my clients, Deloitte, and, most significantly, the people of Deloitte. I have not only had the opportunity to have an impact from a business standpoint, but the personal connections I have made leave a more lasting impression.”
" It is easy to view items such as governance, risk and compliance as 'check the box' activities. However, policies and procedures are nothing more than pieces of paper if the people in your organization do not understand their role, believe that it is important and feel that there is an organizational commitment from the top and throughout the organization.”
