Linda R. McFarland, LUTCF

Linda began her financial services career in 1987.  A graduate of the University of Florida and as a former teacher, Linda believes that financial education is a necessity. She considers herself a financial educator, and believes her role is to provide accurate information to her clients so that they can confidently make decisions to plan for their future.

An important part of Linda’s practice is working with women.  She believes that everyone - married, divorced, single, widowed, working or retired – needs to know about key financial strategies that can help make the most of their money. 

She specializes in working with Florida Retirement System employees providing ways to enhance pension benefits and maximize retirement income.  As a former FRS employee, Linda knows that there are many ways to retire.  There are numerous decisions for her clients to make to reach their goals for themselves and their families.  For many years she has worked with the employees of the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office, Sumter, Pasco and Hernando County Schools, and the Pasco Hernando State College as a resource and as an advisor.

In order to better serve her clients and realizing that knowledge in the changing financial industry is vital, Linda attends continuing education courses, seminars, professional conferences and recently participated in an extensive financial advisor coaching program.  She attained her Life Underwriters Training Council Fellowship designation (LUTCF), and has been a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) for many years.

Linda has presented financial management classes at PHSC as an adjunct instructor and for many years has been President of the Suncoast Women in Networking Group.  She lives in Hudson on her farm with her Arabian and Half-Arabian horses and assorted small animals.
