Kelly Murphy

Administrative Assistant

I love serving both the clients who walk in our doors, as well as the staff here at Silver Oak Advisory Group. I’ve always gravitated towards service-oriented positions, whether they be in the professional or volunteer realm, and I’ve always found great joy in making others feel happy, special, and noticed. Therefore, an administrative role is a natural fit for me.  

Administrative work isn’t new to me. I’ve worked as both an office assistant and a writing tutor where I strengthened my skills in organization, editing, and customer service. I bring an upbeat attitude and vivacious friendliness to the teams I work with.

I grew up in Portland and relish the long, grey rainy days when I can curl up and read a good book. In my spare time I enjoy hiking in the gorge with my Mom, throwing elaborate theme parties, and learning Irish Gaelic. I am currently working on writing a novel, the first in a five-novel fantasy series, and I aspire to one day become a published author.
