Jennifer Duffy

Senior Vice President, Investments

Jennifer's career in financial services began in 1986 following her graduation from William & Mary with a bachelor's degree in business administration. Initially in banking with The Dime Savings Bank in New York, she was hired by Merrill Lynch in 1990 and began training as a financial advisor.

As a founding and senior partner of Blue Ocean Wealth Advisors, she is the team's lead planner, focused on providing personalized strategies and solutions to high-net-worth individuals and their families. Her work leads to the development of a custom return index for each client. We believe that this index provides clients much greater confidence for attaining goals and much less concern for investment risk.

Jennifer's additional academic credentials include earning the Professional Financial Planning certificate from Old Dominion University and the Certified Special Needs Advisor designation. She recently earned her Wealth Management Specialist designation. Community involvement includes volunteering on behalf of Norfolk Academy and in various lay capacities at the Church of the Holy Family. She also volunteers with the Mayor's Action Challenge, a program designed to help 500 families become financially fit for the future.

Jennifer is married to Neil Duffy. They reside in Virginia Beach with their two children.
