Catherine Lavoie**

Associate Director of Compliance

Catherine Lavoie grew up in Maine while being active in the JROTC, and graduated from the University of Maine with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Secondary Education. While in college, she worked two jobs – one of which was at a call center. After moving to Pennsylvania to assist her grandparents in their senior years, she sought similar work and found an entry-level job taking life insurance applications.

She became fascinated with the insurance industry, and began to soak up as much webinars as possible; within a year, she had earned a life/accident/health producer’s license, and had become series 6, and series 63 certified. Discovering a passion for the securities field, she then obtained the series 7 and series 24 certifications to become a compliance specialist. At Duncan Financial Group, her focus is channeled into risk analysis, supervising sales professionals to see that their transactions continue to meet the suitability standards of the industry’s regulatory authorities.

Catherine lives in North Huntingdon, and her off-hours are often spent exploring the culinary arts and pushing towards new physical fitness goals. Never forgetting her humble beginnings, she applies her athleticism to fundraising by participating in charity 5k events, but most values her involvement in food drives throughout the year and giving trees during the holiday season.
