Jude and her husband, Wayne, founded McDaniel Knutson Financial Partners in 1981. She holds Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®) and Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®) designations from the American College. Jude has been providing financial services since 1979 and has been an Investment Advisor Representative since 1987.

Jude is licensed in variable annuities, life and disability insurance, as well as a securities registered representative with Cetera Advisor Networks LLC. She is a Top of the Table member of the Million Dollar Roundtable and is a member of the American Society of CLU/ChFC, the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, and the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce. Over the years, she has taken on various responsibilities in these professional associations and is still active in them on a local and state level.

Jude’s objective with each client is to be able to say, “Goals were set and accomplished.”

Jude has been involved in many community projects and organizations over the years and is well known in the Lawrence community.  She is a generator for motivating McDaniel Knutson employees to be involved in the community and the formation of our vision to be a caring, intelligent and highly accessible firm.

Jude truly enjoys working with her clients, some of whom have been with her since she started. Her husband Wayne, who started the business with her, is now McDaniel Knutson’s Chief Financial Officer.
