Kelli Ballard

Owner – Kelli is the founder of Business Resource Group Midwest and has been a small business advocate for the past 20 years. After completing her course of study, while not originally intending to major in accounting, she fell in love with the numbers and never looked back. From the beginning Kelli had an intuitive ability to translate financial statements into meaningful information for her clients.

In 2003, Kelli became a certified QuickBooks Pro Advisor. Today Kelli has worked hand-in-hand with hundreds of small business owners all over Southern Illinois, Paducah KY and the Greater Southern Missouri area.

“Would you get in your car and drive down the highway blindfolded?” she has asked many a business owner. While no one has yet to answer in the affirmative, she is quick to point out that without accurate and timely reports from the accounting system, they are running their businesses blindfolded.
