Kaelah Stark-Granger Joins JRS Wealth Management/Wilde Wealth Management Group as a Registered Administrative Representative

(TUCSON, Ariz. – January 27, 2022) – Wilde Wealth Management Group, an award-winning independent financial firm with offices in Scottsdale, Tempe, Glendale, Payson, Tucson and Indiana, is pleased to announce Kaelah Stark-Granger, MPA**, has joined JRS Wealth Management Group as a Registered Administrative Representative. In her role, Stark-Granger works with clients in the areas of relationship management. She will work both virtually as well as from the firm’s Tucson office, which is located 1610 E. River Road.  This office is unique in that it is a joint location between Wilde Wealth and its two Tucson partners, JRS Wealth Management and Hallmark Financial. Given the close relationship between the team, Stark-Granger will work closely on behalf of JRS in partnership with founder Jim Stark, her father, as well as with Wilde Wealth.

A Tucson native and Desert Christian High School alum, Stark-Granger earned her bachelor’s degree in Psychology and her master’s degree in Public Administration with a concentration in finance, both from the University of Arizona. Upon earning her master’s degree, Stark-Granger worked in nonprofit fund development for more than a decade, first at Tu Nidito Children & Family Services in Tucson and then as a nonprofit professional for the University of Rochester after relocating to New York with her husband in 2013.

“When COVID-19 hit, my husband and I found our routine – as so many of us did – changed dramatically, giving us both time to assess our careers based on our evolving goals,” says Stark-Granger, who is also a mother of five children ages 3 to 15. “I’d worked in finance as it related to the nonprofit world for many years, but when I began talking to my father about family financial planning as it related to my own family over the past year-plus, something just clicked. I found I not only had an interest but immediate passion in helping parents and families like my own planning for their futures.”

Stark-Granger holds Series 7 and 66 registrations and is in the process of studying for additional designations. She looks forward to mentoring under her father, a Tucson financial planning leader for more than 30 years and helping families across Pima County and beyond.

“Outside of obviously being honored to work alongside my father, I am also excited to join Wilde Wealth given its reputation both in Arizona and nationwide,” says Stark-Granger. “The firm’s mission – to offer boutique, customized investment planning advice; to offer clients expanded in-house service offerings from fellow independent specialists in the fields of legal, taxes, risk management, family services, real estate and insurance; and to give back to the community – is directly in line with my own values, so it was a natural fit.”
