Kimberly Foster, ChFC®


Kim excels as a compliance officer and appreciates how her analytical, regulatory duties complement the client-centered advisory services she provides for the company. Kim helps Laraway Financial Advisors’ clients make sound financial decisions that have impact on their financial wellbeing.

Kim has given 25 years to the financial services industry, working her way up from the ground floor to where her career stands today a Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®) designation through The American College of Financial Services. After receiving a diploma at the St. Cloud Technical College, Kim worked for a Northwestern Mutual Insurance agent and a registered securities representative as an administrative assistant, subsequently becoming Director of Operations during her 20+ years at a local retirement and estate planning firm. In 2009, she completed coursework in Business Administration at St. Cloud State University. In 2014 Kim joined Laraway Financial Advisors.

“I’m passionate about the world of financial planning,” says Kim, who holds multiple securities and insurance licenses. “My position allows me to broaden my compliance experience while helping clients with financial planning, all in an office where everyone is so positive and genuine.”

>Positive experience with the GREAT Theatre, a nonprofit community theater for artists and audiences of all ages, led Kim to a volunteer board position. She is also a recovery coach at the St. Cloud Hospital’s Recovery Plus, an addiction services treatment center.

Kim was raised in St. Stephen. As an Army medic, stationed at the Giebelstadt Army Airfield in Germany, Kim met Nicholas. The two participated in field exercises together as part of the 3rd Attack Helicopter Division, and the couple eventually married.

Kim still loves to travel, having been overseas and across the USA. However, she also likes to “nestle-in” on a movie night with Nicholas, watching seldom-seen independent flicks. In her spare time, Kim enjoys yoga, walking her Husky, Lucy, going to musical theater performances with her daughters and reading to her grandson.

Something nobody knows about Kim . . . While in Germany, Kim drove a 2.5 ton, six-wheel-drive, triple-axel cargo truck––fondly called the “deuce-and-a-half”––with trailer as part of the Army’s medical convoy during field training exercises. “Very scary,” says Kim of the high embankments and the narrow roads that threatened rollovers.
