Sharon Olson, CFP®, CEPA is recognized by STEP, the global professional association for trust and estate advisors.

Sharon Olson, CFP®, CEPA, President and Founder of Olson Wealth Group and Inspired Life Family Office®, has been recognized as a Trust and Estate Practitioner (TEP) by STEP, the global professional body for trust and estate advisors.

STEP has over 21,000 members globally, including lawyers, accountants, trustees, and other practitioners that help families plan for their futures. A TEP is a full member of STEP, which is the highest level of membership that is only granted to the most experienced practitioners. This recognises their specialist qualifications, experience, and expertise.

Sharon Olson, CFP®, CEPA, said, “I am very delighted to become a TEP in acknowledgment of my over thirty years of financial, trust, and estate experience guiding families with vision. Becoming a TEP is a meaningful recognition of the many years of work with families who seek to create a meaningful legacy.”

All TEPs must demonstrate their commitment to high professional standards and continued professional development. They must act with integrity and adhere to STEP’s Codes of Professional Conduct, which set out the ethical and professional standards a member should uphold.

There are four levels of STEP membership. A Trust and Estate Practitioner (TEP) is a Full Member, and practitioners can also join STEP as an Associate, Affiliate, or Student.

Being a STEP member enables practitioners to stay on top of industry changes, develop their skills, demonstrate specialist knowledge, and prove their dedication to the highest professional standards.
