Meredith McKinley

Human Resources Manager

As Human Resources Manager for McKinley Carter Wealth Services, Meredith McKinley coordinates internal communication and oversees the development side of human resources.

Meredith began her career in the financial services industry in 1998 at a national brokerage firm. After entering their financial advisor training program and earning the Series 7, 63, and 65, she was selected to participate in a groundbreaking pilot program designed as a means of orienting new clients to the firm and providing them with an overview of all the investment vehicles and services at their disposal. While the program was limited initially to large markets like those in the New York, Newark, and Boston metro areas, Meredith and the small Wheeling market were invited to join in the first round of beta testing. As the program was rolled out, Meredith was selected to participate in the road show, introducing the initiative at advisory conferences throughout the country and to assist in training new employees within the program.

In 2002, Meredith began working as a financial consultant for a national financial services firm designed to meet the needs of people in the nonprofit world. In this role, she traveled to colleges, universities, hospitals, and other entities throughout West Virginia to counsel retirement plan participants. Immediately prior to joining McKinley Carter Wealth Services, Meredith served as COO of the McKinley household, where she answered to two very demanding task masters. During this domestic executive stint, Meredith honed her skills as a development officer, household manager, and effective communicator.

Meredith holds a master’s degree in corporate communication from West Virginia University and a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Ohio Wesleyan University.  She also holds the Society for Human Resource Management Certified Professional (SHRM-CP®) designation. Meredith lives in Wheeling with her husband and two children.
