I'm proud to be a Thrivent professional continuing the financial planning practice that my mother Mary Peterson started almost 30 years ago. She and I worked as partners before her retirement a few years ago. I am honored that many of our clients continue to have confidence in me after decades of planning for and adjusting to their financial needs.
Our practice includes multi-generation families, a privilege that aligns with my personal dedication to my own family. My wife Jenny and I have teenagers, Fiona and Lars. We worship and serve together at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Midtown Atlanta where Jenny and I have leadership roles in Confirmation and Church Council and our kids participate in music and youth programs.
We support Lutheran Campus Ministry where I serve on the advisory board; Inspiritus (formerly Lutheran Services of Georgia); and Novus Way especially enjoying Lutheranch, Lutheridge, and Lutherock.
I celebrate the gift of free time with family outings, sports activities, reading (especially history), movies, and riding out into God's world on my bicycle.
I will welcome the chance to speak with you about how I might help you.
