About Me

Current Role

I am currently an SVP of Compliance at MUFG Union Bank, N.A. that has about 2,700 offices in over 50 markets with over 180,000 employees. 

In 2013, I won the highly coveted, distinguished banking employee recognition award “The MUFG Americas Culture of Excellence" award which is only given to top performers for my team's outstanding achievement in being directly instrumental in successfully deploying the bank’s multi-million dollar loan origination software, ensuring all risks were mitigated with the creation and deployment of strong procedures and controls.

I am also known for my many contributions in mentoring other executives, and being a passionate and avid supporter of community reinvestment by mentoring small business owners at Micromentor.org. I am an active member at the following organizations with the following designations:

Certified Regulatory Compliance Manager (CRCM) 


Institute of Internal Auditors

African American Board Leadership Institute 

My Experience

I am an analytical, results-driven compliance and risk management executive with 15+ years of leadership experience in strategy, designing and implementing robust compliance policies, controls, and processes as well as cutting-edge risk analysis platforms to minimize risk and optimize compliance performance for financial services leaders such as MUFG Union Bank and JPMorgan Chase.

I have proven success in the end-to-end development and execution of enterprise-wide risk and compliance programs as well as key business and technology initiatives related to risk and compliance in the consumer lending space, supplemented by extensive experience in building high-performing compliance teams and collaborating with C-level leadership on risk governance and strategy.

When I'm Not Working

I live in sunny San Diego, CA. I love spending time with my family and my miniature poodle. I lived in Hawaii growing up, so I love doing anything outside and near water.
