Results driven, risk manager and solutions finder.
While being a property Manager for 11 years, which has its own complex risks that I successfully conquered, I worked for Santa Barbara Companies and really helped mitigate and slash lost revenue and fraudulent behavior.
As an example, for TrackR, I slashed their chargeback rates from 17% to 0.3% within a 1-year period by analyzing recurring disputes, devising and implementing an action plan for alleviation, saving $25M as a result.
