I can answer questions concerning internal and operational auditing, fraud prevention procedures, internal control, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, COSO control concepts, and management oriented auditing. I would love to provide business-owners with suggestions on how to prevent and detect fraud so that they are proactive in protecting their wealth since the very beginning of their entrepreneurial affairs. I can answer questions to both English and Spanish population. I am very committed to keep my standards up today so I know many resources where I can direct those seeking advice.
I have rendered services for private companies, profit and non for profit, in two countries. As independent consultant I have provided advice to managers in implementing procedures that streamline their operations and enhance their activities. As a staff accountant in a US CPA firm, I performed regular auditing procedures for different engagements.
AICPA (American Association of Certified Public Accountants), ACFE (Association of Certified Fraud Examiners), ACFEI (American College of Forensic Examiners.
Bachelors of Sciences in Business Administration – Accounting University of South Florida USF – Tampa Florida Catholic University – Colombia Title earned: Specialist in Tax and Customs Central Foundation University – Colombia Title earned: Certified Public Accountant. On August, 2006 I passed all four sections of the Certified Fraud Exam which tests for proficiency in the following areas: Criminology and Ethics, Financial Transactions, Legal Elements of Fraud, and Fraud Investigation.
As employee of Forensic Technology Inc. a Canadian company with locations and sites worldwide, I was the winner of the 2005 President's award in the category of Cost Savings through Efficiency or Innovation granted in January 2006 in Montreal, Canada.
I have provided advice to all kind of companies: manufacturing, service, consulting, non for profit organizations, etc.
This is an exciting field that provides tools for successful business management. Many owners have not realized the importance of having in place business procedures that lead them to act with the conviction that at some point their entities are going to be audited by a regulatory body and they will be hold accountable in the first place.
I expect to increase my knowledge in this field with my answers. One goal is to do a research about how people see auditors in today's fast-paced environment and the contribution they make to a better society; I would like to find out how the auditors' role can be enhanced and the public trust increased by gathering input from different sources.
Internal auditors' contribution to a corporation is to add-value and improve the processes.
Many users of financial statements assume that because an external auditor issues an unqualified opinion the financial statements are free of errors and fraud. It is important to realize that his/her assurance is only "reasonable", not "absolute."
