Kellie is the Branch Manager of the Asheville branch of Kiely Wealth Advisory Group; the corporate manager of the “Pay It Forward” empowerment program and the 401K coordinator of our Corporate accounts. Her responsibilities include managing the firms pro-active giving program; coordinating the 401k efforts and administering the branch office in Asheville.
A native of Jacksonville, NC Kellie earned a bachelor’s degree in English Literature from the University of Louisville in 1996. While in college, Kellie interned for U.S. Congressman Mike Ward in Louisville, Ky. Kellie worked with Case Workers and learned how to communicate and educate constituents within the Congressmen’s community. She turned down a permanent position with the Congressmen and headed back to eastern North Carolina where she promptly landed a promising position with Mega Force Staffing in 1997. Based on her background work with Congressmen Ward, Kellie realized she could help to empower everyday people with their career choices. After quickly rising from staffing specialist to business development manager, Kellie moved on to client retention and development in the eastern North Carolina region for Business Telecom, Inc in 1998.
Kellie joined The Kiely Group in 2000 after hearing Dr. Kiely’s message of education and empowerment. In the beginning marketing and development were Kellie’s main objectives for The Kiely Group until moving into the Asheville area where she now assists Dr. Kiely with portfolio analysis, the 401k division, as well as the daily branch office operations. Kellie has also played a major role in organizing The Kiely Group’s charitable division, which formally began in 2003.
Her hobbies include travel, cooking, sewing, kite-surfing, gardening, scrapbooking, working out and yoga. She also has a full time job looking after Joe’s needs.
“Ever since I have been associated with The Kiely Group, their main goal has always been to give first.” In the beginning this strategy was focused almost entirely on our educational seminars and clients. Today, that focus has shifted dramatically towards our “Pay It Forward” community service programs. As the Corporate Giving coordinator, I get to see how our programs are helping empower working mothers, children, College students, and families who need a small helping hand. I am proud of our innovative process that makes sure every dollar we give goes to the intended recipient…and grows”
