FWN Member Spotlight: Edcelyn Pujol (Global FWN100 '12)

Edcelyn Pujol (FWN's Vice President of Professional Development), is a Certified Financial Planner ®, and runs a financial advising practice, Frontier Wealth Strategies, at Walnut Creek, California. She provides comprehensive financial planning and investment advice.  

Giving back to the community is important to Edcelyn. For over five years, she has been a part of the leadership team that puts together the “Best of the East Bay” Run for Education which attracted 9,000 runners last year and raises funds for the San Ramon Valley School District.  In the last two years, Edcelyn worked with the SF District Attorney’s office on an Anti-Bullying campaign to increase public awareness about bullying amongst students.

She attributes her success to the fact that she truly makes a difference in the lives of the people she works with whether it is planning for retirement or investing their assets. An important part of her role is to be a trusted advisor to her clients and she takes the time to build that relationship.
