Regina Beatty CFP®, CBEC®, CRPC® - Private Wealth Strategist

Regina is the poster child for why people need financial planning. Years ago, as a divorced mom of two sons, Beatty met and married her second husband, a widower who also had two boys. Together, the couple built a successful life insurance business. But one night, while driving to a restaurant for dinner, her husband suffered a heart attack and died, leaving Beatty with four sons to raise and educate.

“Thank God for life insurance,” says Beatty, recalling that challenging time. “I wasn’t wealthy, but I knew that if somehow I couldn’t work, I had enough to pay off the house and get everyone through college.” Life has a way of teaching you what you need to know. Beatty quickly took stock and made some changes. She started working as a Financial Planner at Lincoln Financial Advisors but soon realized there was much she didn’t know. She returned to school, earned a bachelor’s degree, and earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation.

She specializes in planning for successful business owners and their families in all facets of business succession planning and coordinated estate and legacy planning. She guides her clients along a financial roadmap tailored to their unique needs with enthusiasm, dedication, and deep knowledge.

Outside the office, Beatty is committed to giving back to her community. She serves on several boards of directors, raises scholarship funds for area children, and serves as a mentor to girls and young women who are considering a career in financial management. “Women are innately good at this,” says Beatty. “We multitask, we’re organized, we’re fearless, and we’ll do anything to take care of our families.”

Julian received his bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh in 2013.
