I’m from the San Francisco Bay Area and completed my undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley (BA Economics). In addition, I have a Masters in Accounting from the University of Texas at Austin. I previously worked as an auditor for PricewaterhouseCoopers. More recently I held a variety of financial positions at Hewlett-Packard. I also worked in the internal audit department at First American Financial Corporation. I hold the CPA license as well as the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) and Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) credentials. I enjoy distance running and run several marathons a year. I’m looking forward to working with all of you in this course.
