I serve as CAF America’s Vice President of Risk Management, Compliance, and Data Privacy. My work supports the global risk, compliance, and data protection work of CAF America across the organization, including leading the know-your-customer (KYC), anti-money laundering/countering financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) and related work that make up CAF America’s financial crime prevention program.

My work has been in support of companies of all sizes, including money services businesses, lending institutions, fintech developers, and healthcare entities. Post-9/11, I leveraged my extensive financial risk management and IT consulting experience to develop many clients’ robust financial crime and fraud prevention initiatives. My work also encompasses the related privacy and information security fields, advancing comprehensive, yet practical, programs for domestic and international personal data stewardship.

Since 2008, I have been a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP) and since 2013, also a Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). Since 2015, I have maintained the benchmark Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification. In 2017, I became one of the first 200 people out of 30,000 IAPP members worldwide to earn the IAPP’s Fellow of Information Privacy (FIP) designation.

I am a long-time volunteer for Court-Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for children. I enjoy cooking, tennis, and writing. And as a result of a graduate school theatre history enlightenment, I am also a dedicated student of the “Shakespeare authorship question” (and a proud Oxfordian).

What do you foresee as the most important development in international grantmaking in the next 5 years?

The continued expansion of regulations that until now have largely primarily applied to formally defined types of financial institutions, such that they add new work and add complexity to existing work for both donors and charities in terms of financial crime prevention and reporting.
