Member Spotlight
Danelle McPeak
Place of birth: Oak Glen,
Favorite Book: The Walk
Series by Richard Paul Evans
Favorite Movie: Raiders of the
Lost Ark
Interesting places you've
traveled to: Northern England
and Scotland
What's on your bucket list: Bora Bora with my husband.
SIU experience: I began my career as a police officer. After almost 7
years, I went into the private sector and have been an SIU Investigator
for over 16 years. I have worked in Auto, Workers' Compensation,
Patent & Trademark Law and Medical Provider Fraud. In that time,
I obtained my Private Investigator's license. Currently, I am employed
with American Family Insurance Claims Services.
What people don't know about you: In college, I was on
" Family Feud " for 10 episodes and my family had the highest
winnings record for several years.
What has being a member of IASIU done for you? It helped
me to meet other professionals at monthly meetings. I was
able to be involved in several large criminal investigations by
the connections and friendships formed with other members.
Hopefully, one year I will be able to attend the annual IASIU
Conference and meet more people in my field from across the
United States.
What motivated you to obtain the CIFI? I wanted a designation
and was researching several options. After speaking to my
SIU Manager, he recommended CIFI as the best professional
designation I could receive.
What benefits do you anticipate because you obtained the
CIFI? I feel it will help me to obtain my goal of moving into
SIU Management within 5 years.
