    Jenée Tonelli
    Marketing & Sales Team Lead

    Jenée considers herself an Atlanta native, though her birth certificate would disagree. During her 15 years living in Marietta, Georgia, she absolutely fell in love with “southern living.” She earned her bachelor’s degree in communications and rhetoric studies from Oglethorpe University in 2006 and has spent the time since then marrying her best friend, having their two little boys and finding her career niche. She and her husband relocated to Kentucky in 2009 after a casual visit; they were immediately smitten with everything about life in Lexington! In past years, she has had the pleasure of working for both small companies and large corporations; though there are benefits to both, she highly prefers the close-knit, family environment that she found after joining Family Wealth Group in 2011. She thoroughly enjoys being a contributing cog in the wheels that drive the company. Her role is to help the office operate as smooth as possible, and she is constantly on the hunt to find ways to make Family Wealth Group more efficient. In her spare time, Jenée reads, writes, dreams up art projects and allows her toddlers to remind her of the true joys in life.
