About Our Team

Jenifer Sapel, ChFC™WMCP™

Jenifer Sapel, ChFC™WMCP™

I’ve done my fair share of wrestling with money.  Growing up, it was a subject wrapped in a lot of mystery and stress.  As a type A first born, I initially went to the other extreme, dedicated to conquering it, I bought my first home at 21 years old and  pursued finance professionally to continually demystify the topic.

After nearly two decades as a financial services professional, I’ve come to realize that most of what we see and learn about personal finance are a series of quantifiable do’s and don’ts.  Many financial plans are just elaborate spreadsheets projecting different scenarios in the future.  These are helpful tools that often fall short of acknowledging that life looks more like a garden, with different needs and different seasons, than it does a tidy excel spreadsheet.  This thinking frames our financial philosophy:  be prepared & flexible, focus on systems and strategies instead of products, and where ever possible, be kind to the earth and humanity as well.

Along with Utor Wealth, I’m a master of one liners, poet, podcaster, athlete, reader, philosopher, and lover of the Pacific Ocean.  My husband, two boys under age 4, and dogs (Jack and Jill) and I all live on a few acres in the beautiful & cloudy Pacific Northwest.

You’ve probably heard “Life is a team sport”. Like a coach, I build a team for each client, to help create and execute a financial playbook customized to their needs and goals.  It doesn’t matter if they’re a rookie or an all-star, we provide the right equipment and game plan for them to win

We expect that after engaging with us on their financial priorities, clients are more confident in their decisions moving forward.  We provide systems and tools that can save you time and energy, freeing you up to enjoy other aspects of life. In turn, these may remove doubt about what is possible and what options are available

I am proud to have earned my Retirement Income Certified Professional designation (RICP.)  Before that, I earned my bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of Washington, followed by a master’s degree in Sports Management from The Ohio State University.   

I enjoy spending family time with my husband and two children, which usually involves watching or playing softball, basketball and football. We also cheer for the Seahawks, Huskies and Mariners!” WCG-21-0129

4 Lies about Retirement

1. Retirement is an age or a year.  First, I’m not a huge fan of the word retirement but that’s a rant for another time.  Almost no one retires the year or age they plan to whether job change, health change or global pandemic.  Also, what other...

Keep Donations Organized

I love the fall, do you?  For me it’s a time to transition out of busy summers, celebrate with a holiday centered around food, and reflect on what we are grateful for as well as what we would like to make improvements on in the upcoming year....

Your Money, Your Voice (or Vote?)

If you grew up in the 90s, you remember the game perfection where there was literally a “frantic race” to put all the pieces in the right spaces.  If you didn’t the board would “pop up” and all your perfectly placed pieces go tumbling about....
