Kelley has seen the financial services industry from all angles: she worked on the regulatory side at the Oregon Department of Justice in the Consumer Protection & Financial Fraud Division, the internal and operational side with Wells Fargo, and now the advisor side as a regulatory compliance attorney.

The ever-changing regulatory atmosphere presents challenges for clients and opportunities to pro-actively assist them. Kelley maintains an in-depth understanding of issues affecting financial institutions, and provides timely compliance guidance to credit unions, banks, other financial service providers.
