I became a Wealth Advisor at Thrivent Financial because I wanted the challenge of helping people be wise with their money and achieve their goals all while working at a company that exists solely for the benefit of its members. I thoroughly enjoy the journey that I take with my clients as we sit down and evaluate their current financial situation, understand their goals and figure out how we are going to get there, wisely, together. For over 18 years at Thrivent I have prided myself on continuing my professional education to ensure that I can be the best resource for my clients and guide them through challenging and sometimes confusing times in life to find a better place financially. I have earned a master’s degree in financial services and I’m also a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® professional. I’m married to my wife Louisa, a Kindergarten teacher in the Minnetonka School district and we have two children, Jack and Emmy and Parker is our family dog.
