WFA (formerly Williams Financial Advisors), a service-oriented, innovative wealth management organization, is proud to announce that Partner & Wealth Advisor, Jody Bluitt, has been named to the Greater Shreveport Chamber of Commerce 40 Under Forty Class of 2022. 40 Under Forty Awards honors forty professionals under 40 who have excelled in their careers, education, professional development, community leadership, and volunteer efforts.

This distinction is brought to the area by the Young Professionals Initiative (YPI) of Northwest Louisiana, a program of the Greater Shreveport Chamber.

“To be recognized as one of the 40 honorees on this list means the absolute world to me. I truly believe financial literacy is a launchpad for success not only in business but in life and should be taught at all levels,” said Jody Bluitt. “Through my volunteerism, I have seen firsthand how financial literacy can transform communities and lives. It’s not just about helping people survive, but empowering them to thrive—that’s my forever life’s work.”

Over the last 15 years, the Greater Shreveport Chamber of Commerce 40 Under 40 profiles Northwest Louisiana’s outstanding entrepreneurs, executives, managers, and professionals in public, private, or non-profit sectors. Winners are chosen based on such values as achievement, experience and innovation, vision, leadership, and community involvement.
