From 1985 to 1989, Trustee Keller worked first as a staff auditor and then a manager for a certified public accounting
firm who contracted with the then Department of Social Services (DSS) for the
State of Colorado. The firm audited
approximately 200 long-term care facilities each year. Audited findings were reported

in cases involving Medicaid rates.
In 1989 he went into business for himself as a consultant to the provider community, assisting long
term care facilities in all aspects of financial operations from establishing
accounting systems and systems of internal control to year-end financial
statements. He was hired as a consultant by
Colorado Health Care Association (CHCA) who represented approximately ninety
percent of the long-term care facilities in Colorado and testified on
their behalf before the Colorado Joint Budget Committee. His twenty plus years in long-term care has made him
an advocate for the elderly.
