I have continuously served PBSA® in some capacity or another since 2006. I have served in many roles starting as Co-Chair then Chair of the Provider Committee, then as Co-Chair, Chair, and Co-Chair again of the Conference Committee. I served as an Associate Board member for almost 7 years.

I am a veteran of the screening industry, having served in various capacities from Research Manager to Chief Compliance Officer. I am a Certified Fraud Examiner and licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia, Department of Criminal Justice Services as a Private Investigator (DCJS 99-212824) and as a DCJS Compliance Agent, as well as by the State of North Carolina (2816-PIA).

I am a 32nd degree Scottish Rights Master Mason, Shriner, Secretary of the Moore County Shrine Club, and Past Master of Excelsior Lodge 261.
 

From your perspective, what are the three most important priorities that PBSA should pursue during the next two years?

PBSA® should focus on effecting change in State and Federal regulation thru a systematic plan to identify specific cases that we can win and thereby create case law that supports our cause.

We need to be mindful of the bottom line and maintain fiscal responsibility. The fact we are a non-profit does not mean break even. We need to ensure we are developing financial resources to fund education.
 

How do you see your contribution on the Board for realizing these priorities?

I have and will continue to volunteer my time and financial resources to help PBSA® navigate the issues mentioned above in any capacity. I am a committed member of the Association.
 

What is your long-term vision for PBSA’s impact on the background screening industry?

I believe PBSA® is again at a crossroads. To be the Global resource is the next step for PBSA® and background screening as an industry and profession. The push to become The Global resource while maintaining relevance in individual councils and countries will require a methodical and measured roll out.
