Wendy Peichel, the Financial Education Program Associate in the Arlington office, recently completed all of the requirements to become an Accredited Financial Counselor. This professional designation is given by the Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education and requires a rigorous program of study, along with 1,000 professional service hours and recommendations from peers. The AFC credential adds to the credibility of the hard work that Wendy performs for Extension’s financial education programs. Wendy joins Jennifer Abel in holding this designation. Jennifer became an Accredited Financial Counselor in 2006. Congratulations to Wendy for this great achievement!
