Internal audit and controls executive focused on process improvement.

About me

I’m a passionate lifelong learner.  My background in audit and compliance has helped me to become an expert in identifying business process improvements and finding out the best way to implement those improvements. I am experienced in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), including assessment, design, documentation and testing. Continuous improvement is what I strive for, both personally and professionally.  I am also an enthusiastic technology adopter, a fan of science fiction, running and a lifehacker.  I’ve been living in the Jacksonville, Florida area since 2009 with my family.

I am currently an independent consultant with my company, Schoenly Consulting LLC.  Previously, I was the Senior Vice President of Compliance (Audit) for Healogics, Inc. Prior to joining Healogics, I successfully led Sarbanes-Oxley and internal audit projects for multiple Fortune 500 clients at the corporate level, and have an expert understanding of both financial and operational auditing from my time in internal audit senior management with two large multinational organizations (Coty, Inc. and the Thomson Corporation). I have worked in over 20 countries (with an emphasis in Eastern Europe, but also including Western Europe, South America and Asia).  I worked in Moscow, Russia for several years in the mid 90s as an auditor and consultant to major Russian and multinational companies with Price Waterhouse.  I began my career with Deloitte.

I have worked in internal audit for both private (US, German and Canadian) and public (US/multinational) companies, including internal audit and Sarbanes-Oxley work for financial services clients on Wall Street.  I am an expert in the use of Microsoft Excel for financial modeling and proficient in the use of Visual Basic (macros). I have led multiple successful enterprise-wide systems implementations (Hyperion Strategic Finance, proprietary billing/invoicing systems, reverse auction systems, audit electronic workpapers and several others).  I have worked with a number of internal audit systems, including TeamMate, Pentana, Risk Navigator and others.  

I am a board member of the Institute of Internal Auditors’ Northeast Florida chapter and co-Chairman of the Jacksonville chapter of the Financial Executives Networking Group.  I am a member of the Healthcare Compliance Association, the Association of Healthcare Internal Auditors and ISACA.  I am a Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) Certified in Healthcare Compliance (CHC)®, Certified in Healthcare Privacy Compliance (CHPC)®  and a Certified Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt (more information).
