I started in the industry in 1999, at Expeditors International as an entry writer and have advanced myself over the years working for other Customs Brokers such as UTI, Cargo Partner International, CEVA and now Western Overseas. I have experience with overseeing operations in the U.S and Canada and understanding the rules and regulation within those countries. I have experience in managing several branches to ensure operational excellence, finances, Customs Regulation, duty drawback, compliance, and uniformity within each branch.
Currently I am the VP of Regulatory Compliance at Western Overseas and oversee all of the compliance for the company. I am also involved with overseeing the operations for majority of the branches from a P&L perspective.
I am looking to become more involved with local and national associations to become more instrumental and participate within the industry.
