Professional Projects or Initiatives of Interest

I have a long history in the banking industry serving both as a regulator and a compliance officer. As a regulator, I examined banks and credit unions on safety and soundness, information systems, and CRA compliance. As compliance officer, I oversaw all aspects of bank operations. With over 27 years in banking, I am very knowledgeable with challenges banks and credit unions face, particularly with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s consumer protection initiatives.

I attend industry seminars and conferences and stay current on banking developments. I am a good resource on banking and I encourage you to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns regarding the industry. I served as chair of the Eastern Massachusetts Compliance Network and as a member of Massachusetts Bankers Association’s Legal and Regulatory Compliance Committee.
