She received additional executive education from Yale University. She also earned a certificate in financial planning from Grand Valley State University.
At Merrill, Chelovich leads her team’s planning-based initiatives for families and is devoted to working with both spouses when possible.
She also was named to Forbes’ “Best-in-State Wealth Advisors” list for 2020.
Chelovich serves on the Grand Rapids Community Foundation’s Professional Advisory Committee, is a member of Grand Rapids Community Foundation’s Scholarship Selection Committee and volunteers with West Side Walk for Gilda’s Club.
She resides with her husband Colin Chelovich and their young son in Grand Rapids.
