About Kerry Keihn
Kerry Keihn is a financial advisor and director of operations at Earth Equity Advisors.
Kerry joined Earth Equity Advisors in 2015 after relocating from Northwestern Virginia, where she had worked for several years with homeless individuals and families as a Certified Housing Counselor and Master Financial Educator. After several years in the nonprofit sector, she decided she wanted to work for a responsible business that worked on solving both social and environmental issues. She was drawn to Earth Equity Advisors’ goal to empower investors, allowing them to evoke positive social and environmental change.
Kerry graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in Drama. She is a huge fan of theater – from attending to acting, directing and designing productions. She has always loved the financial side of her work from counseling homeless households to helping people invest with their values, since she sees money as a part of how we each write our own story.
She loves being active in the Asheville community through her involvement with the Asheville Board for Ten Thousand Villages, Pisgah Legal Services’ Young Professionals Board, and a mastermind group for the local Conscious Capitalism, Inc. chapter. She is a 2017 graduate of the Leadership Asheville program.
She lives in Candler with her partner, Tyler, and their dog and cat.

The tour guide who showed us the new warehouse and office space described how four years ago he was living out of his car shortly before getting a job with Gaia Herbs.… Read the rest
On Sunday, July 21st, I had an awesome time at Pisgah Legal Services’ second annual ‘Our Global Table’ fundraiser. I became involved with Pisgah Legal Services’ young professionals board shortly after moving to Asheville in 2015. In my previous career as a financial and housing counselor, I worked closely with the local legal aid provider, especially when clients would ask me questions like, “Is it okay that my landlord put in my lease he can have video cameras in my apartment?”… Read the rest
