Lauren Grove Earns the CFP® Certification

After years of hard work and dedication, we are very proud to announce that Lauren Grove, Assistant Financial Planner in our Virginia office, became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM professional on Friday, February 6th. To obtain certification, a planner must have satisfied the CFP Board’s “Four Es” – Education, Examination, Experience and Ethics. As you may recall, we sat down with Lauren days before she took her exam to learn more about her diligent study schedule and announced in late August that she had passed her exam. After learning that she had received the certification, we asked Lauren, “What three words would you use to describe how it feels to have earned the CFP® certification?” Read on for the answer and learn more about earning the prestigious certification.
