Northwestern Mutual is celebrating the Tracy L. Shackelford’s fifth anniversary with the company.

Shackelford, a Gloucester native, joined Northwestern – a financial planning and insurance company that has been serving families and businesses for nearly 160 years – at the Williamsburg office in February 2011 as a financial representative. She has since become a financial adviser.

Shackelford earned a bachelor’s degree in religious studies from the University of Virginia and is currently a member of several local organizations, including Impact 100 Greater Peninsula, the local University of Virginia Club, the Williamsburg Garden Club and Child Development Resources.

In her capacity at Northwestern, Shackelford is part of “a network of specialists offering a wide array of products, expert guidance and innovative solutions for her clients’ needs and goals,” according to a recent news release.

Shackelford was named Northwestern Mutual’s Virginia Group Representative of the Year in 2015.

Shackelford resides in Williamsburg with her husband and business partner Harold Philipsen and their two sons.
