Goetting, who is a member of the ESP Montana Alpha chapter, was recognized for her estate planning and family financial education workshops that have reached more than 45,000 Montanans in every county and reservation in the state.

Goetting has authored 48 peer-reviewed fact sheets, called MontGuides, on the subject of estate planning and has developed other educational opportunities throughout her career with the mission to educate people in Montana, the West and across the United States. During the pandemic, Goetting created several estate planning webinars that reached 3,900 Montanans both in 2020 and 2021.

“I am honored and humbled to receive the Visionary Leadership award,” Goetting said. “Estate and financial planning can be daunting topics to understand. I am dedicated to making sure every Montanan has the information needed and the confidence to plan for the inevitable.”

Established in 1927, Epsilon Sigma Phi seeks to improve standards of excellence in the Extension system and provided professional development. ESP is one of the oldest and is the largest organization of Extension professionals.
