Compliance / Fraud / Policies & Procedures / Technical Writing

My career took an interesting detour into the regulatory compliance world - mostly Anti-Money Laundering (AML) - for several years. Although I had direct responsibility for several compliance functions at Western Union and worked as Chief Compliance Officer at PayLease, much of my work still revolved around communications.

I spent quite a bit of time on outreach, articulating aspects of my companies' compliance functions to state and federal regulators, banking partners and customers. My writing and public speaking abilities helped me deliver our messaging with great clarity.

Also, I took the time to learn the AML world in-depth and earned the Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) designation, which lent greater credibility to the mix. Combined with my deep knowledge of the business and operational processes, the story was very persuasive.

Based on my compliance experience, I also wrote policies & procedures and risk assessments for Western Union and PayLease, and reviewed/edited stress test and risk assessment documentation, and Service Organization Control (SOC) reports for CoBank. 

I can provide redacted examples of P&Ps that I have written upon request.
