About Lilly

Lilly originally joined the KFG team in July of 2014, took a short hiatus in 2018 to care for her young daughters, and returned in 2019.

She holds a bachelor’s degree in English from South Dakota State University. After graduation, she and her husband Chris moved to the west coast to begin their careers. Lilly gained invaluable experience and knowledge working with a fee-only financial planning firm in Washington. This experience sparked both her interest in the industry and a dedication to delivering quality service to clients.

After starting a family, Lilly and her husband decided to move closer to home and settled on a small acreage near the Black Hills. Desiring to continue working in the fee-only world, she found Kahler Financial Group. After nearly a decade with KFG, Lilly continues to enjoy her role as Client Service Specialist where she prioritizes client requests and works closely with the firm’s custodian to maintain client accounts. In 2017, she acquired the FPQP designation and continues working toward further licensing to expand her knowledge in the financial industry.

Outside of KFG, Lilly enjoys being an all-around Dr. Doolittle to all her farm animals, undertaking DIY projects too big to finish without the help of her handyman husband, and most of all showing her children the beauty of nature and slow living in the country.
