CSI Graduate Takes Her Degree To The Bank


Kate Reno earned her degree in Forensic Science with a concentration in CSI in 2016. She landed a job at Wells Fargo in Home Mortgage, which got her into the "financial realm" to eventually get a job at US Bank in the Anti-Money Laundering department. While in the AML, she reviewed customer accounts then alerted unusual activity to determine if it was indicative of potential money laundering. After about a year, she moved to the OFAC Sanctions Screening department where she reviewed individual transactions to see if there were hits against the OFAC sanctions list. Now she works in the fraud investigations department at US Bank where she reviews customer accounts for fraudulent activity. Kate says "it's a lot like solving a puzzle, and you can tell a lot about a person by looking at their bank account." She hopes to eventually get her CAMS (Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist) certification. She is happy to be putting the investigative skills she attained in the Forensic Science- CSI program to good use in her current position!
