Growing up, both of my parents worked hard to provide for our family. Money was tight but I learned the value of budgeting from my parents. They taught me that life was more about how to properly use the gifts God has given us than how much we have. I joined Thrivent Financial in 2000 as a ministry to help families with one of the toughest topics in their lives, money. I find absolute joy helping members put together their financial puzzle. My job is to understand your goals, through planning show you where your financial puzzle pieces fit and show you ways to fill the missing pieces. My life verse is Galatians 6:2 "Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." This verse motivates me daily to meet with members and help ensure your families are protected. I am married to my wonderful wife Jill and have three young men, Isaiah, Liam and Elijah. Together we enjoy playing board games, swimming, archery, camping and riding in the mango tango Jeep.
