Congratulations are in order for Rebecca Jernigan. After joining Buttonwood in July 2019, she has rigorously pursued her professional education. In July, just one year after joining our firm, she completed the coursework required by the CFP Board of Standards, including:
- Professional Conduct and Regulation
- Risk Management, Insurance and Employee Benefits
- Investment Planning
- Tax Planning
- Retirement Savings and Income Planning
- Estate Planning
A comprehensive exam follows the coursework, and is known to be challenging. In 2019 the overall pass rate for the exam was 62%. Rebecca was well prepared when she sat for the exam in September, and passed. Next, once she completes two years of work at Buttonwood, she’ll earn the CFP® professional designation.
Making her dedication to mastering the material even more impressive, she did it while planning her wedding. Rebecca wed Tom Blaschak on 10/15/20 after plans for their original date of 05/10/20 were dashed by the outbreak of COVID and the resulting restrictions. You can tell she’s a numbers woman. So… double congratulations Rebecca Blaschak!
