Kelly received her Master's of Accountancy from the University of Montana in 2004. She went on to work at a CPA firm for six years, before starting her own practice in December of 2010. In her first career, Kelly was a math teacher and in her second career she owned and operated a downtown Missoula business for 19 years. Accounting was a logical combination of aptitude and experience for her third and final career. She loves working with local businesses in startup consulting, bookkeeping, payroll and tax. It fuels her entrepreneurial spirit and her love for her hometown of Missoula. Preparing tax returns for a diverse population of individuals keeps her deeply connected to the Missoula community. She spends the majority of her free time on the pickleball court or at home with her family and friends: cooking, walking dogs, eating out, mowing the lawn and laughing.
