As a researcher at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors’ Department of Consumer and Community Affairs, Amberly Hazembuller was asked to work on a fair lending enforcement case. This assignment required her and a colleague to review the lending portfolio of a large national lender for compliance to fair lending laws and regulations. Their work resulted in a fair lending referral to the Department of Justice and ultimately the largest fair lending settlement to date.  

This experience led Amberly to a full-time role in fair lending enforcement at the Federal Reserve. Since then, she has worked in compliance roles at several national and regional banks. Currently, she is the founder of a niche consulting firm assisting companies involved in the lending process identify, prioritize, and mitigate fair lending risk.
