On March 27, 2014 Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart honored Carrie Kerskie for her hard work and dedication as a private investigator and identity theft expert. Below is the transcript of the extension of remarks.
Mr. Speaker, in recognition of Women’s History month I rise today to honor Ms. Carrie Kerskie, an outstanding individual and someone who has continuously supported the South Florida community. Ms. Kerskie is currently President of Marcone Investigations, Inc. and is a highly sought-after speaker, trainer and consultant specializing in identity theft protection, detection and restoration. Prior to her work with Marcone Investigations she worked for some of the top investment and insurance companies in the country. She is also an accomplished author, penning Your Public Identity; Because Nothing is Private Anymore. On top of all this, Ms. Kerskie is the founder of the Association of Certified Identity Theft Investigators, and created the Certified Identity Theft Investigator Program. She developed this program after her years of experience working with identity theft victims had given her ample knowledge to develop procedures that greatly reduce the restoration process of these victims, saving them time and money. Ms. Kerskie’s expertise in the identity theft field has made her a featured guest on NBC News, ABC News, and Fox News. She has also written articles, and been highlighted, in Gulfshore Business, Southwest Florida Business Today, PI Magazine, and Adverse Witness. Her tireless efforts have also garnered her recognition, being given the 2010 American Business Women’s Associations Neapolitan Chapter “Woman of the Year” award, the Harvey R. Morse Founder’s Award given for outstanding service to the Florida Association of Private Investigators and the private investigation industry, and in 2009 was selected as one of Gulfshore Business’ “Top 40 Under 40”. Mr. Speaker, I am honored to pay tribute to Ms. Carrie Kerskie for her continued service to South Florida and I ask my colleagues to join me in recognizing this remarkable individual.
