Kelly-Erin Ketchen

Licensed Life Insurance Broker, Bank On Yourself® Professional/Trainer

“I can teach you how to keep your money over generations in the same way the Rockefellers have, using a time-tested strategy called Bank On Yourself that has proven successful after many decades, financial depressions and skeptics. There are only a handful of agents in Canada who have the licensed skills to aid you in your financial endeavours in which to gain a retirement fund, education planning, renovations or future travel plans.”

Kelly-Erin Ketchen became a Licensed Life Insurance Broker (LLQP)and a Bank On Yourself® Professional in 2013 and shortly after that, joined the MacDev Financial team. Having experienced the financial flexibility the Bank On Yourself method provides firsthand, Kelly now teaches and empowers her clients on how to implement Bank On Yourself in their own lives so they can gain financial control and create a safe and secure nest egg for later years.

When Kelly is not highlighting the benefits of the BOY method to potential clients, she works in direct partnership with mortgage brokers and real estate agents to educate new homeowners on the use of life insurance, disability insurance, and critical illness insurance as a replacement for mortgage insurance sold through the banks.

“You need to enjoy life, but you can’t be reckless without any thought for the future. The Bank On Yourself concept has allowed me to achieve both of these in harmony and I would like to help give you and your family the same peace of mind and financial success.”

Kelly completed a Bachelor in English in 1993 and a Bachelor of Education in 1995 from the University of British Columbia. She spent several years as an elementary teacher, managing large classes with diverse students. This professional experience honed her people and problem-solving skills and provided a wonderful foundation to build up her career as a Life Insurance Broker. She has incorporated these valuable teaching skills to educate adults on how to better manage their money and explore different financial opportunities they may not be aware of.

In her downtime, Kelly enjoys spending time with her family, scrapbooking and card making. She was a great asset to her daughters’ Irish dance competitions as a fundraiser and organizer. In addition, she also served as Vice-President for IDOSS, the Irish Dance Organization for Steel School, where her daughters attended classes and actively engaged in national and international competitions.  She also volunteered for her son’s air cadet troop, spending one year as part of the Parent Committee.  Now that her children are older, she finds her time filled with hanging out with her two dogs, Lady Millie-Molly of Snodgrass and Luna the Magnificent Moon Baby.  She is also excited to be working with Michele on some other entrepreneurial ventures.
