VP | Enterprise Compliance

A life change that seemed risky at the time, but it turned out really well

Bored and unchallenged, I was ready for a change. I quit my job on a Friday afternoon and sold everything I owned. With only my Rottweiler and all my belongings in the back seat, I moved across country to San Diego. One of the best life decisions I ever made. On a shoestring budget, I lived on the beach and graduated from law school before returning to Virginia a few years later.

Something about me people might not know

I grew up in Cajun & Creole Country in southern Louisiana and spoke fluent French by the 6th grade.

One word my colleagues would use to describe me



My favorite book


The Fall by Albert Camus

Most valuable piece of advice I ever received


Do what you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life
