Jenny Wood, CLFP, stated, “I couldn’t be more excited and honored to be a part of the CLFP board of directors. It wasn’t so long ago (okay maybe it was) that Reid and I were pulling all-nighters studying to pass the exam together. I will never forget the late nights and early mornings, but looking back, it developed a lifelong friendship I am very thankful for. I have always said it’s not about getting to the finish line but about the journey on the way. I know that by being part of this group I will not only help others become more involved and further their careers in the leasing industry, but also help them enjoy the journey on the way there.”
