Kathy Kooienga

Director of Operations

Hi, my name is Kathy and I would love to tell you a story about my earliest memory, but Levi says my memory is fuzzy, due to my "advanced" age! I'm chuckling over that one! So... Perhaps you can tell from the previous statement, that humor is important to me.

I truly believe in our office motto of the five "F's"... Faith, Family, Financial Planning, Fitness, and Fun! I have been with Valiant Wealth Management for a little over a year now. My pervious experiences in life were in the health field and administration. I have owned and operated several businesses and gained valuable experience that has prepared me for working with a wide variation of people in life, and I love people! I firmly believe in a positive frame of mind.

I am blessed to have 2 great sons and "daughters" -in laws and 2 wonderful grandchildren, Ashby and Elliott, who are the apple of my eye and I am in Love! When I'm not at the office, I am very involved in my family's lives, my church, and my friends. As the "Mom" of the office, I can honestly say that I am so blessed to be surrounded by a group of dedicated, honest, and hardworking individuals who believe in always doing what's right! Life is Good!
