Kelly Hugghins is a Financial Advisor and a member of the Medical Division of North Star Consultants of Texas, based in Austin, TX. She has built a practice working primarily with medical professionals and is passionate about conveying the importance of financial education and accountability to her clients. She enjoys beginning relationships with her clients early on in their careers when possible (often when they are still in school), to ensure her clients can start the financial education process early and avoid the potential development of harmful financial habits. By working together and forming a trust-based relationship, she hopes to build collaborative strategies to effectively reach the goals of her clients.
Recently, she has joined forces with other female advisors within North Star to host a speaker series called Power of the Purse, which is a movement to help support and empower women through financial education. Driven by her passion for educating and supporting women, she utilizes a collaborative process to design and implement comprehensive strategies and equips her clients with long-term financial understanding which allows them to confidently make decisions for themselves and/or their families.
Kelly frequently holds presentations & events for students at the A&M Vet School, UNT & Baylor PA program, UT Houston Dental School, and UT Austin Residency Program. Kelly is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA) and is also FINRA Series 7 and 66 registered, Life and Health licensed, and Variable Life Annuity licensed.
