Tracy L. Coenen, CPA, MBA, CFE, Advisor

Tracy L. Coenen is an award-winning innovator, entrepreneur and visionary.

Her credentials include an Honors Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and Law Studies, a Master of Business Administration, a Certified Public Accountant license, and designation as a Certified Fraud Examiner. In addition, she is an Adjunct Professor at Concordia University – Wisconsin, Adjunct Faculty for the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, and a writer featured in regional and national publications.

After refining her skills in public accounting and the criminal justice system, Ms. Coenen founded Sequence, Inc, to pursue her passion of investigating fraud. The company’s anti-fraud work includes investigation of embezzlement, financial statement fraud, and insurance fraud. On the litigation side, the firm works with attorneys on damage calculations, commercial contract disputes, and criminal defense matters.

In addition to posting an impressive win-rate as an expert witness, Ms. Coenen has turned what she knows about investigating fraud into fighting fraud. She is an in-demand trainer and authority on fraud prevention for corporations and professional organizations. Her fraud-fighting knowledge has been tapped worldwide by accountants, investigators, corporate executives, and news organizations.

Ms. Coenen has applied the depth and breadth of her fraud knowledge to investigating pyramid schemes and business opportunity scams. As a former member of the Mary Kay sales force, Ms. Coenen soon discovered the career opportunity is built upon an endless chain of recruiting and inventory orders.

She began investigating the Mary Kay business opportunity more than two years ago, collecting data and personal stories about the company and its representatives. This work led to the development of a website,, designed to provide factual information about the company and to allow women to share their experiences with one another.
