A former U.S. Air Force flight nurse, Angela Ribuffo turned to a financial advisory career 25 years ago, after an adviser helped her military family reach goals it might have otherwise not accomplished.

"I thought it would be a way to give back," said Ms. Ribuffo, a First Command Financial Services financial adviser.

Ms. Ribuffo focuses on female clients because she believes many don't understand their finances or what's available to help them make financial decisions. They also tend to outlive male spouses, she said.

She also does pro bono work for military families and is the national president of Women in Insurance & Financial Services, where she hopes to elevate the industry as a career choice for women.

Ms. Ribuffo helped launch WIFS' new "AdviseHER," a digital magazine and mentoring program. She said mentoring female advisers is what fulfills her professionally.

"Fueling their passion for what they do, supporting them, coaching them — all of that is really wonderful for me," she said. "I've had wonderful mentors and advocates in my life that led to me to where I am, a success today."
