I am an Enterprise Risk, Internal Audit and Compliance specialist who simplifies assessments and who provides simple solutions on Governance across the Enterprise.
Board of Directors value my global pragmatic approach in marrying Internal Audit, Compliance and Enterprise Risk in a way that doesn’t distract from the strategic imperatives of a company.
I bring 25 years of global experience to the Boardroom with a background in Big 4 Accounting as well as operational experience in the capacity of Chief Audit Executive and Chief Risk officer at Fortune 500 Companies.
I have been a globetrotter until settling in Raleigh, North Carolina where I am raising two boys with the support of my husband David. I am an adrenaline seeking, CrossFit fundi, Harley Davidson aficionado, Carolina Hurricanes junkie who also enjoys baking and landscaping projects at home.
I grew up in South Africa and after putting myself through college worked for Deloitte in the South African office before transferring to the New York office. I made partner in the Global Risk Advisory practice of Deloitte focusing on Technology Risk including Cyber Security, Finance and Internal Controls, and Governance Risk and Compliance. I have spent a lot of time with Board of Directors talking about these topics and helping to relay messages of risk and related mitigating strategies.
