Owner & Founder of Pinnacle Consulting & Advisors
I created Pinnacle Consulting & Advisors because I saw a need for the small to medium-sized business or startups to get some of the guidance and use some of the resources the big companies have at their disposal.
I know that sometimes things can get challenging, and we are here to ease the load off your shoulders from day one. If you’d like to learn more about how our consulting services can help you or your business grow, book an introductory meeting today.
A little more about me: I have been a leader in Corporate Compliance, Regulatory, and Ethics Investigations for a Fortune 500 Company, as well as over 27 years of Law Enforcement.
I have extensive experience in leadership and investigations in compliance, suitability, risk, regulatory, and ethics, as well as AML, KYC, fraud, human resources, and highly sensitive investigations. I have over 21 years of investigative experience with corporate, local, state, federal, and international investigations.
I worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and an International Task Force in Baltimore, Maryland and Washington D.C. Throughout my career I have been a dedicated professional, able to resolve conflicts and remain focused under extreme stress. I have a solid reputation for a strong work ethic and uncompromising devotion to service.
I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1991 in Public Relations with coursework and experience in business management, marketing, statistics, accounting, computer hardware, and criminology. I have been a certified computer forensic examiner in EnCase, FTK, and other forensic tools.

Senior Manager Audit and Controls
I joined Pinnacle Consulting & Advisors because I saw the opportunity to join a team that had the same goals I did - to join a team that was committed to helping the business owners of Las Vegas achieve what they didn't know was possible: sustained growth, security, and financial success.
A little more about me: I have led audit, investigations, and consulting teams in Fortune 500 settings, achieving operational, regulatory, legal, financial, and security goals. I also have extensive experience working with the federal government assessing the security and safeguard programs of military installations.
In addition to the above, I have also obtained a Masters degree in Business Management from California State University Northridge. I have been trained in Interview and Interrogation Techniques by Wicklander-Zulawski, and I am a Certified Fraud Examiner.
