Meet Kathleen


How do you add value for our clients?

It starts with relationships. It’s important to Kathy to develop strong relationships with clients, so together they can identify what’s most important to them. Kathy can customize a strategy that fits their life and gives them confidence in their financial plan. Trust is critical, and she values the trust that her clients place in her.

Kathy’s primary goal is to help clients make wise financial decisions through education, enhanced technology and personal client service.

A little more about me

She has made her home with her husband, Jeff, in Mead, Washington. Kathy has three grown children: Keilyn, Ryan and Bryce.

Kathy enjoys golf, volleyball, traveling to different countries and experiencing diverse cultures. She likes outdoor activities, such as hiking, camping and boating with family and friends.
