About Drew Wilson

I'm proud to be a Thrivent Financial Advisor. In August 2023, I joined Thrivent after vetting other options in the industry. I have been a part of the financial services industry for over 8 years with 7 of those years in the independent space. I believe the support, culture, and belief Thrivent puts behind their financial professionals was second to none. They put action behind their words when it came to giving and volunteering, which was another big plus to me that separated them from other firms.

I am married to my lovely wife, Jen, since June 2012. Together we have 3 wonderful children, Mia, Ella, and Gabriel. I can be seen driving around whenever the weather is nice, cruising in my 1966 Oldsmobile 98 Convertible "Old Blue" with my straw cowboy hat (have to protect my bald head). I absolutely love history including old architecture, US History in general, and genealogy. Growing up in St. Peters, MO, I have always and will continue to support my hometown teams, St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Blues, St. Louis Battlehawks, St. Louis SC, and my alma mater, Mizzou.
