Jodi Kortman, Senior Vice President, Financial Advisor

Jodi is a Port Angeles native who has accumulated over 20 years of experience in the financial services industry. She is our “Go To” team member for her amazing wealth of knowledge. Starting as an Administrative Assistant, Jodi later attained her Securities Licenses and was promoted to Senior Registered Associate with The Olympus Group.  In 2016, she made the transition from Associate to Financial Advisor.   Her passion for helping people and her experience acquired from holding multiple job positions with D.A. Davidson is why she is such a respected Financial Advisor.  Jodi is dedicated to building lasting client relationships by understanding each client’s individual financial goals. In her free time she is a board member of the Feiro Marine Life Center and  enjoys hiking, gardening, and traveling with her husband and son.

 

Sean Simmons,  Financial Advisor

Sean joined The Olympus Group after three years in public accounting at Moss Adams LLP. He discovered his passion for the financial services industry during his time at Western Washington University, where he received a bachelor's degree in accounting and finance. During his time there he held an elected officer position with the school's Financial Management Association and also presided over the Finance Tutoring Center. It was in these roles that Sean realized how valuable his advice was for those with a limited understanding of finance; a fundamental realization he carries with him to this day. Outside of the office, Sean enjoys being outdoors, whether he's salmon fishing out on the saltwater or hiking in the mountains. He especially loves spending time with his wife, Shelby, and black Labrador retriever, Meeko.

 

Susan Kelly, Client Associate

Born and raised on the Olympic Peninsula, Sue has been a welcome addition to D.A. Davidson. As the newest member of The Olympus Group, her 18+ years in the real estate industry and past three years in administration for a kidney dialysis clinic have provided Sue with a wide background of experience. In those roles, she effectively exemplified the customer service, client confidentiality, and accountability that a Client Associate must exhibit every day. Sue and her husband keep busy with investment properties, family, and socializing as often as they can, dancing east coast swing and ballroom. “It is an honor to work for a group and a company that knows that at the end of the day, it is the client experience that matters the most. My husband and his family have had accounts with D.A. Davidson since the beginning and been very satisfied."
