Getting to Know Debra

What do you like most about your job?
I like feeling like I make a difference.  I help to mitigate reputational, financial and operational risk for the Bank.  I also aid law enforcement agencies by reporting suspicious activity that helps to fight against terrorist financing, human trafficking, drug trafficking and fraud.

What person, living or deceased, would you most like to meet?
Princess Diana.  She was a great role model for the modern woman.
