I am an Associate Representative with Thrivent Financial primarily serving eastern South Dakota and southwestern Minnesota. Prior to working with people as a Financial Professional, I used the Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering earned from the South Dakota School of Mines in a variety of jobs centered on software development and focused on testing and technical support. I found that I greatly enjoyed the challenge of finding an optimal solution for unique problems. As a Financial Professional, I find that every family is different – problems and concerns they have require strategies unique to their situation. I work with you to help you identify and prioritize those things that are important to you and customize a plan to address them. I have a wide variety of products and services to draw on: Life Insurance, Disability Income Insurance, Long Term Care Insurance, and Medicare Supplement Insurance; Retirement planning; 401k and Roth setup and rollover.
