have been working with seniors since 2000 when I began working for a
great homecare company called With a Little Help (www.withalittlehelp.com).
In 2006, I started Fraud Resolution for Seniors, LLC,
to utilize my financial and sleuthing skills to help seniors who
have been financially exploited. My expertise includes
reconstructing financial histories and identifying and documenting
misdeeds. Once documented, I work with credit reporting agencies,
banks, attorneys and others to help clients recover from
exploitation. My experience has shown that it takes consistent and
persistent follow through to get the desired results for my
client—and I am relentless until there is resolution.
Resolving financial abuse is about money but it also
has a huge emotional impact on seniors. They may believe they are
‘stupid’ for allowing exploitation to happen or they may be ashamed
that this has happened to them. I provide all services in a kind
and gentle way, emphasizing to them that they are not at fault. I
want them to know they have an advocate in me. I will do everything
within my power to stop further exploitation and to help restore
How I got Involved in Senior Fraud
have been working with seniors since 2000. Interest in the problem
of financial abuse of seniors began when I worked with a client
whose bookkeeper was defrauding him. After reconstructing the
financial history and researching transactions, it was determined
that $219,000 had been stolen through a variety of schemes. The
documentation was given to the prosecuting attorney, and the
perpetrator was sentenced to 5 years in prison.
Prior to working with seniors, my career was at the University of
Washington. Managing a cost center in the health sciences gave me
extensive experience in accounting, auditing and problem solving.
These skills plus experience navigating a large institution’s rules
and regulations have helped me resolve problems for seniors.
I was born and raised in
Utah and graduated from Utah State University with a degree in
Business Administration. When not working, I enjoy spending time
with my daughter, doing outdoor activities and being of service.
Currently I volunteer in a program that educates seniors on how to
protect themselves from fraud.
