In this role she is responsible for leading the domestic and international growth and success of four distinct disciplines and related credentials including forensics, valuation, personal financial planning and information management and technology assurance. Her team also helps members demonstrate their expertise in these areas through the ABV, CFF, CITP and PFS credential programs.
During her time at the Institute, Jeannette has been integral in building the highly technical Member Specialization and Credentialing team to lead the advocacy efforts and development of education and resources that enable members practicing in these disciplines to be successful. The depth offered in these areas has grown exponentially under Jeannette’s leadership.
