Make financial stability a city goal

I believe our growth here in Coralville and how it is guided with financial responsibility should be our priority. As we build vibrant housing developments, attract retail and entertainment, and secure professional employment opportunities, we must do so with an eye on our financial stability.

If elected, I’d like to work closely with the Economic Development Department, Chamber of Commerce, business incubators, existing small businesses, Iowa Small Business Association, and America’s SBDC Iowa at the University of Iowa to lead Coralville to a thriving future.

I’ve worked in the investigative, accounting and financial fields since 1985. With a passion for investigative work, I’ve concentrated my efforts by working nearly exclusively on forensic accounting assignments since 2006, when I launched my own consulting business.

I specialize in intensive interviews and analysis for legal proceedings, proactive reviews to assess elements of possible fraud, investigation and documentation of elder exploitation cases, forensic accounting for divorce, and forensic account expert services for a variety of civil and criminal cases.

My unique strengths center on the analytical, investigative and presentation skills I acquired, first as a banker and financial planner, and then as a fraud investigator with the United Nations. I received in-residence formal training in criminal investigations and indirect methods to prove income or expenditures. By using these indirect methods, I can develop a financial picture, even with incomplete documents.

Let’s work together to create an area where we meet to dine, shop and socialize.
