She earned her Bachelor of Science and Business Administration from Washington University in St. Louis and her Juris Doctorate from American University – Washington College of Law.

“Nebraska has greatly benefited from having McHenry’s leadership as the Deputy Director of the Securities Bureau,” said Kelly Lammers, NDBF Director. “She has a calm passion in the promotion of the securities industry, recognition of consumer protection, and is a proven leader in policy, moving forward the Nebraska Protection of Vulnerable Adults from Financial Exploitation Act, with a commitment to keeping the Securities Rules current. The Department is both proud of McHenry’s accomplishments and looking forward to our continued strong working relationship with NASAA and with President McHenry leading North American securities policy as NASAA President.”
