As Sr Finance Manager for the MultiCare Health System (MHS) account, Kelly is responsible for overseeing the finances for projects, leases, and real estate taxes managed by CBRE on behalf of MHS as well as the CBRE financial management for the account. Kelly joined the account and CBRE in April 2015.
Experience working in accounting firms and with large and small companies has given Kelly a diverse background in accounting and finance as well as service to a variety of clients.
Her career began as a staff accountant with a niche accounting firm in Connecticut where she had the opportunity to support individual and commercial clients with their tax and financial needs. Leaving the firm as a partner, Kelly made her way back across the US to the Pacific NW where she began her next career at Microsoft. While at Microsoft, Kelly added to her base of financial skills, gaining knowledge particularly in the areas of process improvement, cross group communication, project management, and strategy. Also at Microsoft, Kelly spent five years supporting the Real Estate & Facilities team during a time of tremendous growth of the Microsoft real estate portfolio. She found she had a passion for real estate work with that passion for real estate leading to her third career at CBRE.
