As a Compliance Specialist I support our team and clients with questions regarding CE & licensing requirements for different regulatory boards & governing bodies. I also work with our implementation team in onboarding and validating new clients' data. Additionally, I work to develop training tools and tips to empower end users and administrators when navigating the compliance features in LCvista.

Before joining LCvista in 2021, I spent 5 years in continuing education and licensing compliance for a top U.S. accounting firm. It was in this role where I was first introduced to LCvista as an administrative user, where I immediately recognized their commitment to innovation and accuracy through a flexible, dynamic product.

Prior to my experience in continuing education, I performed compliance work in Retirement Plan Services as a FINRA licensee, and bond-yield tax arbitrage analysis after graduating Summa Cum Laude with a BSBA in Accounting in 2015.

During that time I was fortunate to participate in periodic national organization events with learning and continuing professional education (CPE) leaders from the top 25 U.S. accounting firms, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy.

My initial exposure to LCvista was as a client in that prior role where their dedication to developing the best solutions and providing the highest quality service to their clients always impressed me. LCvista provides me the opportunity to work with great people, in a flexible remote work environment, while utilizing my industry knowledge in a new way and sharing an industry CPE compliance perspective.

As manager of the Engineering team, I split my time between management and coding, where I still work on new features and compliance rule implementations. Our team is extremely collaborative and supportive and has retained a small team feel even as we have grown. We are an all-remote company, but we can always count on our teammates being available to help on a bug or complex issue.

At LCvista, we are dedicated to building the best product for our clients by being finely attuned to their needs today and in the ever-changing compliance landscape. We are proud to deliver the most accurate compliance tools in the market.
