Kelly joined Stifel in October 2016. After passing her Series 7 and Series 66 exams in 2017, she began assisting Austin in January 2018.

Kelly's job responsibilities at Stifel include: opening new accounts, performing account maintenance, assisting clients by phone or in person, scheduling appointments, coordinating marketing efforts for Nold Financial Group as well as for the branch as a whole, working as a back-up cashier, and assisting the team with a variety of other tasks.

Kelly has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Professional Photographic Illustration from Rochester Institute of Technology, in Rochester, New York. After growing up in a suburb of Kansas City, she spent 12 years living in Rochester and working in the banking and photography industries. Though Kelly enjoyed her time in New York, she is happy to be back in the Midwest and closer to much of her family.

Kelly and her husband, Brent, have two sons, Bernie and Wally. She loves to travel and often gets away to visit friends who live in other parts of the country or to explore new places. Kelly also enjoys exercise, cooking, eating, taking pictures, arts and crafts, reading, and spending time outdoors with her family. She was excited to use her photography skills to create the new St. Joseph-themed artwork that you may see hanging in the hallways of the office.
