For this episode of Where Accountants Go, the Accounting Careers Podcast, we are joined by forensics expert Leah Wietholter, CFE and PI in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. If you are interested in starting, or continuing to develop a career in forensics, you will love this episode. We start with the story of how Leah was selected for a very rare internship opportunity with the FBI that lasted for 2 years, and how much she learned during that early period in her career. We then move on to discussing a position she accepted in tax, and how she was able to expand that into additional forensic investigation work with her employer at the time. And then to finish out the second half of the episode, we go deep into the details of how she formed Workman Forensics and how the company has developed over the last 10 years. Make sure you listen all the way to the end to find out more about her own podcast, and how they have ‘gamified’ the process of learning about fraud investigations. “The Investigation Game” is definitely a creative and interesting way to learn!
