MeKell graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Economics. After graduation, she worked as a financial analyst for a capital markets group and then as an analyst for a fortune 500 healthcare company. In 2002, she began working independently for clients as an analyst and accountant. This opportunity led her to private real estate lending, since many of her clients were looking for new investment opportunities.
MeKell uses her strong background in economics to understand the ever changing real estate market in Las Vegas, and her background in financial analysis to structure conservative loans for investors.
