Jennifer Johnson is our CFO at TCI Financial and holds her life, health and annuity license in nearly 40 different states. With more than a decade of experience in the financial services industry, Jennifer is already extremely accomplished as an agent. Having risen to the top of a large firm prior to starting TCI Financial, she knows what it takes to be a successful business owner, and she feels extremely lucky to be able to do it with her husband at her side.
On a typical day, Jennifer is meeting with clients and preparing analyses and road maps that help them find new ways to save money for retirement. Her approach begins with education, which she feels extremely passionate about as information seems to fall through the cracks in school. “I feel like a lot of what we teach isn’t general knowledge. We notice it often with baby boomers, but it’s becoming increasingly common and obviously hasn’t changed in school systems that are supposed to educate today’s youth about life principles,” Jennifer says.
Originally from a small town in Maine, Jennifer moved to Florida in 2007 to pursue a career in pediatric oncology. Though her fire for battling pediatric cancer is still alive, she eventually became a stay-at-home mother then found insurance while looking to re-enter the workforce. Jennifer’s first license was a six-month temporary license, which she intended to use to test the waters, but she quickly found that she loved the opportunity to help others. She specifically recalled one member of her family whom she looked up to as the pinnacle of success, but when they fell ill and suddenly found that they were unprepared for major emergency expenses, she realized that even the most financially savvy could fall victim to money trouble without proper preparation.
