The need for exceptional guidance and best practices to develop a holistic approach to cybersecurity and technology risk is no longer a nice-to-have, it is a necessity. ACA Aponix provides innovative solutions for our clients to make their programs seamless and effective. I’m excited to join this talented team and to help expand the business.”

She’s a strong leader with a passion to inspire her team to provide superior client service and innovative solutions to help clients grow and protect their business.”
