About Kerry Keihn
Drawn to our goal of empowering investors, Kerry Keihn loves helping people evoke the positive change they want to see in the world. By aligning clients’ wealth with their values, Kerry helps them understand how their money can make a bigger impact and craft a legacy they’ll be proud of for years to come.
Due in part to several years of social work, Kerry is passionate about how much behavioral and emotional factors play into financial decisions. Now a financial advisor and director of client services and operations, Kerry continued her education by earning the Accredited Behavioral Finance Professional (ABFPSM) designation – the first advisor-focused behavioral finance designation from an accredited college or university. Forever passionate about helping clients look inward to move forward, she leans on that background often as she helps her clients logically navigate investment decisions.
Building on her University of Virginia education and further distinguishing herself and her expertise in this new world where competitors all too often greenwash and mislead potential SRI clients, Kerry earned the Chartered SRI Counselor (CSRICTM) Designation. With this certifications, you can be confident in Kerry’s ability to help you make the impact you want.
A strong believer that “we’re all in this together” and knowing community is where that starts, Kerry is a graduate of the Leadership Asheville Program and is active with several local nonprofits. She serves as the chair of the Asheville Ten Thousand Villages board and she volunteers with Pisgah Legal Services on their development committee. Leesa Sluder and Kerry have also co-founded 100+ Women Who Care Asheville – a local giving circle that supports charities in Western North Carolina.
When she’s not helping clients or her community, Kerry can be found attempting home improvements with her partner, Tyler, at their home just outside of Asheville. She can also be found gardening, meditating, or doing yoga while her two dogs and one cat try to “help.” Also a huge fan of the theater, Kerry enjoys everything from attending to acting, directing, and even designing entire productions. She loves tackling a new project and any and all opportunities to learn.
