Rochelle Poulton, Business Consultant at KLM Consulting

Rochelle is thrilled to be part of the KLM team because Kelly Lorenzen is a brilliant business owner and project manager with a strong track record of helping businesses succeed. In her years as a business owner and attorney, she successfully counseled other entrepreneurs and professionals through the most financially complicated events in their lives and businesses, often achieving results they believed would not be possible. She has nearly 20 years of experience in real estate, marketing, project management, and sales, and a decade as a litigation attorney focused on financial matters for small business owners and self-employed professionals. KLM brings a natural synergy with Rochelle’s experience and skill set.

Rochelle started this adventure with a Bachelor’s degree (cum laude) in English literature and a minor in psychology at the University of New Mexico. After a few years working in a real estate investment firm, Rochelle made the move to Phoenix and completed her Juris Doctor at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State. From there, she launched her consumer rights and small business representation law firm, and eventually opened a separate bankruptcy practice. Ten years after it began, Rochelle decided to move on from the full-time practice of law. Rochelle sold the majority of her legal practice and shifted focus to helping clients solve the same types of challenges using flexible and creative business consulting techniques, rather than through legal representation – a more functional and less formalized approach to achieving client goals quickly and efficiently.

“I have known Kelly for some time but had not taken the leap to use her services and her knowledge to help grow my new business. I also didn’t think I had all of my ducks in a row enough to meet with her.

The reality is that I didn’t need my ducks in a row! She was the best resource to help figure out what ducks I even needed! Ha. I was able to go into the “Brain Dump” meeting with thoughts and ideas and walk out with tangible plans and steps, which I would not have been able to do on my own.”

“We own a small business and we were looking for someone who could take the guesswork out of marketing. We found a true partner with Kelly and the KLM team. Kelly really listened to our goals and helped us develop a strategy to grow our client base. With her expertise, we found a new website provider, started an email newsletter and focused on our social media content.

We’ve already seen results in just a few months. KLM’s rates are reasonable and the monthly services are customized based on our needs. We highly recommend Kelly and KLM.”
