I began my career at PwC in 2005.
There, I focused on fraud analytics for my first ten years, building complex revenue and expense allocation models within SQL Server to find potential fraud and error. I was promoted to manager in 2011, overseeing a team of six, when the data movement exploded and the team grew to 40 by 2015. Visualization was the latest technology at the time, and my team was one of the first at PwC to embrace Qlik and Tableau, helping clients see outliers and trends in minutes that previously needed multiple spreadsheets.
The need for process automation was growing a couple years later, so my team and I pivoted to focus on that, using VBA they were already familiar with and then moving to more robust tools like Alteryx, UIPath and Python, mostly in the finance, risk and compliance space. In February 2020, I co-wrote and published a white paper on Robotic Process Automation (RPA) for the Association of Healthcare Internal Auditors (AHIA), which can be found here.
