Kelly Renner CFP®

Certified Financial Planner™ Professional

I proudly served 4 years in the United States Air Force. I earned my bachelor's in business from Baker College in 2000. I started in the financial services industry in 2001 and by 2003 realized I would have to have my own business if I wanted to take care of my clients the way I felt they should be taken care of. I envisioned a firm that allowed me to always put the client's best interest first and never worry about how much money I made. I earned my Master's in Science of Finance in 2005 and my Certified Financial Planner designation in 2007. I was a corporate analyst and plant controller, but my passion is personal finance and helping people understand their relationship with money. I am currently an active member of several professional organizations, including AUSU (Association of the United States Army), the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce, SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management), SOFA (Society for Financial Awareness), and the Augusta Estate Planning Council. 

I am blessed to be a financial planner and I love working with my clients. I feel like they are an extension of my family and I will do what I can to help make their lives better. I spend several hours a week learning different aspects to financial planning. This is how I can help my clients manage their ever-changing lives.

We have a great team at Life Strategies, and I love that we all work together to improve our client's lives. Each of us cares about what our clients are facing, and we take an active role in providing the best service possible.

My personal life is very much intertwined with my professional life. Jason and I have been married for 29 years and he joined the Life Strategies team in January 2018. We have 3 sons. Our oldest 2 are serving in the United States Air Force. Jake lives in St. Louis with his wife, Jayden and three children, Maevery, Maxsten, and Maddyn. Alex is in Utah with his wife Kathryn. Our youngest, Drew, is pursuing his passion for music and plays Bass in the band, Estimated Principles. I love to explore new places, spend time with our kids and grandkids and sitting by the ocean is one of my favorite pastimes! I am pursuing a lifelong dream of earning my private pilot license. Watching the sunrise or sunset is always an amazing experience.
