Betsy Ratashak-Vogel, CFP® R&V Personal Finance

About Betsy Ratashak-Vogel, CFP®

RVPF exists to support professional women in medicine and their families ease the burden of financial decision making, planning, and management. The task of maintaining balance between the roles of professional, spouse, mother, sister, daughter, and friend can be overwhelming. RVPF is here to help.

Betsy’s story begins in Iowa on a pretty typical small family farm. Her youth was spent playing sports, preparing projects for the county fair, a first job bagging groceries, and roaming about in a way that is atypical now. High school graduation sent her off toward a bachelor’s degree in Food Science. A couple collegiate job experiences included a test kitchen analyst for a large regional grocery store chain and quality control engineering position for the company that makes SPAM. Betsy then completed a master’s degree in family and consumer sciences, an area of study which gave rise to many of today’s collegiate financial planning programs.

Four years of teaching personal finance to high school students while her new spouse completed medical school steered her toward a position as a personal financial counselor at Travis AFB in Fairfield, CA, where her spouse completed residency and eventually joined the teaching faculty. It was at the University of California Davis Extension where Betsy completed her CFP® professional certification and knew that she had found her calling. The birth of a second child coincided with the establishment of RVPF and a move back to Iowa where they have made their home in a little piece of heaven called Decorah.
