Valerie Farris is the Executive Assistant for Keystone Financial Group in our Leitchfield office. Valerie has dedicated her professional life to serving the people of the community she grew up in. After attending Western Kentucky University studying business, she started her career with the Workforce Development Cabinet at the Leitchfield Career Center. Her work there was very challenging but also very rewarding. She served her community for 28 years coordinating programmatic activities related to employment services and unemployment insurance including processing unemployment claims, registering job seekers for work, and making job referrals to employers while ensuring quality services were administrated. She retired in 2007 vowing to live a life of gardening, cooking, and decorating, three of her favorite things.
In 2009 Valerie realized that public service was a part of her and started working part time for Edward Jones Investments as an on call Business Office Assistant. She traveled to area Edward Jones offices filling in for BOA’s learning everything she could about the financial industry. She went to work full time for Elder Wealth Management in 2010, and this led her to Keystone Financial Group with our purchase of Elder Wealth Management in 2013.
Valerie continues to serve the Leitchfield community, committed to providing outstanding customer service. She and her husband Joe enjoy family time with their two children Jason and his wife Leslie and Tasha and her husband Joseph, and three grandchildren, Tyler, Jacie, and Lanie.
