    The Houston ACFE is happy to partner with Audimation Services to host a virtual seminar in lieu of the monthly training luncheon.   


    Speakers: Special Agent Gigi Joyner and Forensic Accountant Kathleen Anderson, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Houston

    Title: "Forensic Accounting FBI Case Study - Healthcare Fraud in the Greater Houston area"

    Description:  Healthcare Fraud is rampant in the Houston and surrounding areas.  Doctors, clinics, hospitals, diagnostics, community mental health centers etc, are all areas where fraud can be found.   These local FBI investigations include money laundering, mail and/or wire fraud, conspiracy and other illegal activities.  Today, we are going to show what a Forensic Accountant in the FBI can contribute to any type of investigation.  Also, we will delve into a Healthcare Fraud investigation from the Forensic Accountant point of view.  This will show how a Forensic Accountant is an integral part of the investigative team.

    Bios:  FBI Special Agent Gigi Joyner is a native Houstonian.  SA Joyner attended the University of Southern California where she earned a BS in Business Management and an MBA.  Prior to joining the FBI, SA Joyner had 12 years of telecommunications experience with AT&T, Telecentro, and Teligent Inc.  SA Joyner has been working for the FBI for 19 years.  Her first assignment was in the Los Angeles area, investigating Mail and Wire Frauds, Civil Rights, and Public Corruption.  Currently, SA Joyner is assigned to the Houston Division where she investigated Health Care Fraud (Medicare Fraud) and is now the Applicant Recruiter. 

    Kathleen (Kathy) Anderson, has been employed as a forensic accountant with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for 32+ years.  She began her career with the FBI in 1988.  At that time, the job was primarily an administrative position; however, the job grew into a more investigative nature in regards to the financial aspects of the fraud investigations.  Anderson was assigned cases involving Transportation of Stolen Goods, Robberies, Drugs, and eventually settled into Bank Fraud investigations.  After 9/11, she was reassigned to work Healthcare Fraud and has been there since 2001 – 2002.  Currently, FOA Anderson is assigned primarily cases on the HCF squads.  She is the primary contact for all HCF searches arranging for assistance from the FOAs.  In 2007, FOA Anderson became a Certified Fraud Examiner.

    FOA Anderson graduated from Texas A&M with a BSA in computer science and a minor in accounting.  She has 2 daughters ages 21 and 16 who keep her free time very busy.  In addition, she enjoys bowling, to include league bowling and tournament bowling and crocheting.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Identify common schemes related to health care fraud
    • Define forensic investigation and how it complements law enforcement investigations
    • Recognize when a forensic accountant can be beneficial to a fraud investigation

    Although we have hosted other smaller virtual chapter events, this will be our first hosting of our annual conference within a virtual format. Our event has been preapproved by the ACFE for 16 hours of CPE, including 2.5 hours of available Ethics credit. This will be a fully “live” virtual event, and we will be monitoring attendance through virtual polling during sessions that is required to qualify for CPE. In person this conference has been attracting a little over 650 attendees, and we are already up to a little over 400 almost two months out. We also have virtual conference hub and mobile app through Cvent that includes additional opportunities for networking and a game to help drive engagement during the physically distanced experience.

    More details about the event, agenda, and speakers is included on our Cvent registration site that can be accessed here:



    This year's pricing is more than 50% less than our in-person conference pricing with the same high quality speakers, and we have the event priced at levels that make the event as affordable as we can for all at $145 (government sector) and $195 (private sector). We have both general session and breakout sessions as we typically have and have secured an excellent speaker line up including highly sought after speakers, such as Theresa Payton (Former White House CIO, Cybersecurity Authority, and 2019 Woman Cybersecurity Leader of the Year) and Traci Brown (Fraud-Busting Body Language Expert).

Over the years, chapter leaders have been able to take advantage of group discounts or international discounts. I’d like to remind you that we are offering discounts to our chapter leaders and members who attend our Virtual Conference. Chapter groups of three or more can take advantage of this discount.

    By registering for this event on the Houston Chapter website you are asking to be registered as part of the Houston Chapter group.  You will be required to complete a manual Supplement Registration Form (PDF that is required by the National ACFE).
