Hi my name is Virginia-Maria Weldon-Battaglia, Virginia for short, and I am the owner and founder of In Your Corner Compliance. I was given an opportunity to help more companies and individuals achieve compliance better, so that's what I set out to do.
Since 2008, I have been assisting organizations within health care, government and higher education to meet the needs of the regulatory compliance landscape with a primary focus on HIPAA and PCI, and then more generally with a comprehensive approach to the security and privacy of sensitive data.
I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. I graduated from the United States Air Force Academy in 1994 and spent my time on active duty working with diverse backgrounds, skill-sets, and career fields to manage and support objectives within a personnel squadron, a training squadron and finally a fighter squadron. After separating from the military in 2000, I gathered work experiences across many different environments from working with youth to health and wellness to drug and alcohol abuse prevention programs to a rural power plant builder to information security consulting.
Every one of my experiences has strengthened and improved my ability to find opportunities where others see problems. They have given me the knowledge, understanding, and passion to help you create and manage processes that enable you and your employees to achieve effectiveness, efficiency and confidence in your regulatory compliance programs.
