      Katelin has been interested in financial markets since she was a child, when her parents showed her the ins and outs of saving and investing. Her internship with a financial services group while in college added real world experience to what she learned at home. In 2008 she joined Edward Jones as a financial advisor; she arrived at UBS in 2010 and joined the Generational Wealth Group in 2022.
