Kasondra N.D. Fehr, CFE, CGA, CFI
Compliance Audit Manager
Schlumberger Limited Houston, Texas, USA
From the first fraud case that crossed her path, Kasondra Fehr, CFE, CGA, CFI, knew she'd found her calling. The rush that came from investigating that first fraud was strong enough to keep this compliance audit manager for Schlumberger Limited – an oilfield services company – coming back for more. Fehr keeps Schlumberger employees up to date on the latest fraud-detection methods and, in return, the company brass keeps an open mind and an open door available to her. It's no wonder Fehr says she loves her company and gets a kick out of her day job – what fraud fighter wouldn't?
"The adrenalin rush from the thrill of the chase has been pumping through my veins ever since."
What first interested you in the ACFE and caused you to seek the CFE credential?
I was working as a controller for the seismic division of Schlumberger in Calgary when one of our field administrators had allegedly stolen funds from our local petty cash account. She had locked herself in her hotel room on location and refused to come out. I got the call and was asked to fly out immediately to investigate the matter. The adrenalin rush from the thrill of the chase has been pumping through my veins ever since. I knew from that moment that my future included fighting financial crime and that I was no longer just an "accountant."
