Jessica Blood, CFP®
Founder & CEO
As the Founder & CEO of PlanWise Financial Group, her mission is to share her knowledge and expertise to help achieve both financial well-being and personal contentment.
Jessica is proud to call herself a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. This designation, held by a small percentage of financial advisors, shows Jessica’s commitment to being at the cutting edge of financial knowledge while always putting her clients’ interests first.
Jessica was born and raised in Upstate New York. She is a Cum Laude graduate of the Boston University Questrom School of Business (a proud “Terrier”) and a scholarship track and cross-country athlete. Despite living in Austin now, she finds herself always rooting for the Red Sox and Patriots – in addition to the ‘Horns. Hook ‘em!
Jessica met her husband, John, in Boston. They moved from Boston to Austin in 2009 and fell in love with all Austin had to offer. Jessica and John have two miracle IVF children, Connor and Caroline, as well as her fur child, Brady the labradoodle. When Jessica is not working, you will find her spending time with her friends and family, volunteering at Connor or Caroline’s school, running, and traveling. Always up for an adventure, the family looks forward to exploring new places each summer.
Giving back is a big focus for Jessica, her family, and everyone at PlanWise. Jessica is involved with the Ronald McDonald House of Austin to help raise awareness and gives back by volunteering, gathering necessities for families in need, and attending many of their annual fundraisers. Knowing how painful — and joyful — the fertility process can be, Jessica is also passionate about lending families going through fertility treatments a shoulder to cry on or a listening ear.
