Team Member Profile
Miki Clifford, Intermediate Analyst
Miki might be Prosperident’s youngest team member, but she possesses genius-level intellect, and she performs a vital role here at Prosperident.
Fitting her work here around her schooling, Miki assists our investigators by preparing and organizing the voluminous documentation we receive daily from clients.
Working here runs in Miki’s family; her father, Scott, is Prosperident’s Chief Fraud Examiner, and her mother, Rose, was recently promoted to Senior Examiner.
Even with her family’s involvement, Miki’s position came an unusual way. A school exercise required her to apply for a job, so Miki naturally sent her project application to Prosperident.
She so impressed our CEO with her submission that he surprised both Miki and her teacher by offering her a real position. It was a great move, and Miki’s efficiency and organizational skills do much to keep Prosperident’s investigations flowing.
Something To Talk About…
Counting Our Blessings.
Well, we made it! September, with all of its scheduling responsibilities and a return to fall and winter activities, has flown by. Time to bring on the Pumpkin Spice anything and everything! The coming month is about changing leaves, crisp nights, the return of our favorite fall television shows, and of course – watching and playing our favorite fall and winter sports. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it should be no surprise that we want to tell you how thankful we are here at Prosperident for your ongoing loyalty and support. Serving dentistry is our passion, and we are grateful for our ability to be a part of your community.
As our business continues to grow, we realize that it is because some of you have made a horrific discovery in the place that you consider to be your second “home.” We are never thankful for that!
However, we are grateful to be able to offer you an ever-expanding team of incredibly capable embezzlement investigators and support staff, who are ready to step in, take over and help you get back control of your practice and its finances.
My team and I have spent a great deal of time this year honoring our commitment to you with the continued development of our Office Protection System program, as well as the other services we offer. As we see OPS being successfully employed in dental practices as a frontline defense against potential embezzlement, we are grateful to those of you who pushed us to develop a system to safeguard your practice’s financial well-being, before trouble can line its pocketbook with your money. You asked, and we have delivered a viable solution for all of you who wish to stop embezzlement in your practice before it starts.
Enjoy your October and all of the beauty and bounty it brings.
David Harris
CEO
