Hi Everyone,

Could you please refer me if anyone knows of any job openings? I have a combined accounting and legal background and could qualify for a contracts analyst position, a fraud examiner position, a paralegal or an accountant. Would prefer contracts analyst but right now would take any of the above. If any of you know of an opening, and you can reply to this with your email address, I can send you a resume which is more readable - it didn't copy over well to the meetup email.

Thank you,

Deeanna
