Vice President of Ethics
I lead a team of global professionals who are responsible for ensuring a compliant culture in the company.
Working with Others
Day to Day
My job is to make sure employees come to work every day doing what they're supposed to be doing. I make sure everyone is following the law, following our policies and procedures, and living our values as a company. I spend a lot of time in meetings with employees in South Carolina and globally. I'll also be up and about walking around our offices, talking to people to ensure they're being compliant and living our values, and making sure everyone has the tools and resources they need to succeed.
Advice for Getting Started
Here's the first step for high school students
If you're interested in law or compliance, there are great programs you can participate in to get early exposure to the industry. A lot of these programs can be done in middle or high school. For example, in South Carolina we have the South Carolina Bar Mock Trial program, which can help you learn what it's like to be a lawyer. I also recommend reaching out to people who are in the profession for knowledge and advice. Once you get to college, look for internships for hands-on experience as well!
