As PwC’s Global Assurance Leader, I bring together the combined impact of 137,000 partners and staff across the PwC network through innovative, high-quality assurance solutions delivered to the firm’s clients around the world.

I bring an extensive track record of leadership in the global capital markets and the public accounting profession. Previously, I held the role of PwC US Vice Chair and Trust Solutions Co-Leader, where I had oversight of the US firm’s combined Audit, ESG, Digital Assurance and Tax Reporting practices. Earlier in my career, I served as the Securities & Exchange Commission’s Chief Accountant, where I was the principal advisor to the Commission on accounting and auditing matters. I also served as Chair for the Monitoring Group, a consortium of regulatory and international financial organizations committed to advancing the public interest in international audit standard setting and audit quality.

I am licensed as a Certified Public Accountant in Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and the District of Columbia; and am a member of the New York State Bar Association. I sit on the board of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and chair the board of XBRL International.

I have been named in Accounting Today's 100 Most Influential People in Accounting list for five consecutive years and am a recognized specialist on leadership in the global market.
