Jennifer is a 27-year veteran of the banking industry and has built an exceptional career focused on fraud prevention and BSA.
Starting as a part-time bank teller, she rose through the ranks, holding numerous positions and building a comprehensive understanding of bank operations.
Her history includes leadership roles in teller operations and branch management. Jennifer also has served as a BSA officer, fraud manager, risk officer, and information security officer.
Most recently, Jennifer was a vice president and BSA officer for a bank and designed, implemented, and directed all aspects of the bank’s BSA/AML/OFAC programs. Her responsibilities also included managing policies, procedures, risk assessments, training, CTR reporting, SAR reporting, high-risk customer reviews, training, and managing regulatory exams and audits.
She’s had hands-on experience in choosing and implementing AML software — including Yellow Hammer, FCRM, and Verafin — and converting banks to new systems.
To reset and decompress, I frequently head to the gym with my husband to lift lots of heavy things. I also retreat to a family vacation property on the Illinois River, and Shelby, my canine love, always tags along. Reading, playing golf, and test-driving new recipes with my husband are other ways I find fun and joy.
