Board Member Spotlight: Jessica Westgard Larson
Jessica Westgard Larson, MBA, RICP, AIF is a Financial Representative, Registered Representative and Financial Advisor at Principal Financial Group® in Fargo. While a student at Concordia College in Moorhead, she started working part-time as a file clerk for her father, Les Westgard, who was also an agent for Principal® at the time. Following graduation, Jessica found herself continuing in a full-time administrative role for Les and pursuing her insurance and securities licenses so she could dig deeper into a customer service role. In 2007 she took the leap into an agent/advisor role, as her father was nearing retirement. They worked through a multi-year transition plan for her to take over his client block. In the years since, she has enjoyed making the practice her own and taking it to the next generation.

Her grandfather, Herb Witthauer, started in the insurance industry in the mid-60s, and her father, Paul Witthauer, joined in 1984. Working in the insurance industry and following in the footsteps of grandpa and dad was always on the back of her mind, and although it took a while to make that decision, since 2014 she has not once looked back.
