Kelli Young

Founder, Financial Planner

Kelli is the owner and founder of Longevity Wealth located in North Bend, Washington and has over 30 years of experience in the financial industry with a concentration in wealth management and longevity planning. 

She owes much of her success to her exceptional customer service levels, empathy for personal circumstances and drive for excellence in planning outcomes. 

Understanding that each client has distinct goals, she takes a collaborative and explorative approach, which she believes is second to none. Her approach provides necessary guidance and comprehensive wealth investment management for each of her clients.

In order to provide the best financial advice to her clients, she draws on a wealth of community and professional experiences including:

  • Speaking and training engagements for retired teachers, railroad workers, state patrol and firemen on longevity planning
  • Regular meetings with local organizations including the King County Estate Planning Council and Senior Care Coalition
  • Participation on several boards within the financial industry including the Raymond James Longevity Advisory Board
  • Collaboration with fellow professionals, which allows her to stay up-to-date with pertinent industry topics.
  • Volunteer work with struggling youth

When she is not helping to serve her community and clients, she devotes her time to her husband and two sons in Snoqualmie Valley. They love their weekends in the garden, on a local trail or traveling to see family, friends, or far-away adventures.
