Advisor | Managing Partner, Seattle

Planning is bringing forward the future into the present so you can do something about it now. -Alan Lakein

Kelly believes that success in financial planning is a deeply personal thing. It takes hard work, discipline and often many years, but when a goal is realized, it can be a tremendously rewarding achievement. And Kelly lives for those moments.

Kelly is incredibly proficient at analyzing complex financial situations and at assessing a client’s unique financial behaviors. By bridging those two dimensions, she is able to help guide people to the decisions that are best for their lifestyle and their goals.

Kelly is a proud Pacific Northwesterner. She graduated from UW and got her MBA from Seattle U. She was a founding partner of Lakeview Financial Group prior to the merger with Private Ocean, and she was also previously the co-owner of Monarch Wealth Management. Look to find her—along with her husband and two kids—out enjoying nature, culture and all the places they intersect here in the PNW.

She has successfully completed several marathons, including the NY Marathon. The discipline and commitment required to complete a marathon is similar to reaching an important financial goal, and so is the deep sense of personal accomplishment.
