Chief Compliance Officer
Kristee joined our team in 2021 with an extensive background in banking and finance. As the chief compliance officer, Kristee ensures our firm complies with regulatory requirements and provides education and guidance to our team on compliance-related matters.
She attended Owens Technical College for accounting and the University of Toledo for criminal justice. She has been a fixture in the finance industry since the 1980s — ah, what a great decade! Her passion for investing and wealth management began in high school when she participated in a banking and finance co-op program. In addition to obtaining the Ohio life and health insurance license, Kristee has passed the series 6, 7, 24, 53 and 66 securities licenses.
Kristee was born and raised on the west side of Toledo, Ohio, but moved to southern Ohio in 2000 and has made this region her home ever since. She enjoys spending weekends at Lake Cumberland and evenings around a campfire with friends and family. Kristee finds joy in cooking and states it is her therapy after a long day. For Kristee, nothing is more inspiring than anonymous acts of kindness; she has been known to wear funny disguises while delivering surprises to her unsuspecting neighbors.
Kristee’s favorite volunteer activity is the Accounting for Kids program, a nonprofit organization that teaches middle school children financial literacy concepts using a fun, interactive stock market game. She enjoys seeing kids get excited while learning something fun.
