Mary Beth Kohlhepp Roche

Mary Beth joined the family business in August 2006 and is now Director of Operations at Kohlhepp Investment Advisors, Ltd. In her time here, Mary Beth has learned the business from the ground up, beginning as an administrative assistant. She has since obtained her Series 6, 7, and 66 securities licenses, and is now managing the operations of the firm and providing compliance support. Previously, she worked for a boutique marketing/public relations firm, in Wayne, PA and a global medical device company, based out of Marietta, GA, as a medical sales representative. Mary Beth was a Division I volleyball player at Marist College and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications in 2000.

In December 2007, Mary Beth married Marty Roche in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. They welcomed their daughter, Ella, to their family in 2014. In the summer of 2016, Mary Beth’s family moved to Chapel Hill, NC.

In recent years, Mary Beth succumbed quickly to the delusion that she could resume her volleyball career. She has decided that tired, abused joints are better spent jumping in puddles when it rains rather than jumping on the court and swinging from monkey bars on the playground rather than swinging at the volleyball – Ella happily agrees! She and her husband enjoy traveling together to experience as much culinary and cultural adventure as they can and have visited Iceland, Ireland, Greece, Spain, France, the United Kingdom and Alaska in recent years. Currently, her focus is mainly on getting acquainted with the culture of life in the south, exploring questions like “What’s so great about grits, anyway?” and “What the heck is a Tar Heel?”
