Kelley Keehn’s middle name is money and her mission is to make Canadians feel good about it. A veteran in the industry, she’s spent fifteen years as a personal financial educator and over a decade as a financial professional, and she’s learned that everyone has money problems. That’s as true for millionaires as it is for people who spend years trying to pay off their student debt.
As an award-winning, best-selling author of over ten books covering topics ranging from personal finance, the psychology of money, behavioural economics, women and finance to avoiding identity and fraud, she knows what’s on the hearts and minds of Canadians when it comes to taking care of their money.
You can find her newest book, Talk Money to Me, published by Simon and Schuster, in stores across the country and the special COVID-19 edition will be out February 23rd, 2021.
As a speaker, consultant and media personality, Kelley used to regularly travel across the country, bringing her unique blend of empathy and no-nonsense candor to the financial industry, major corporations and consumers to help empower their financial savvy and decision making capabilities. Now, because of the pandemic, she connects with companies, individuals and media around the globe from her home studio and dreams of seeing Canadians in person again, one day soon.
Kelley’s the financial authority for CTV’s The Marilyn Denis Show as well as a regular guest on Global, CBC and CTV national to name a few. She was the host of the W Network’s Burn My Mortgage, a CNBC New York contributor, a Globe and Mail columnist, quoted in O: The Oprah Magazine and has made thousands of international radio and TV appearances over the course of her career.
Kelley is proud to have served as the Consumer Advocate for FP Canada and was a member of the first National Steering Committee for Financial Literacy. Today she serves on the Ontario Securities Commission Senior Expert Advisory Committee, the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education and the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada’s Consumer Protection Advisory Committee.
