Colin Aldis

LUTCF®, FIC, RICP®, CLTC®, CKA®

Associate

I wanted to have a flexible career and help people along the way. I enjoy seeing the aspect of helping people become financially independent. Another reason I joined Thrivent is because I desired to work for a faith-based company that had values and a belief system similar to my own. What motivates me every day is my wife, Pat, of 37 years, our two great kids and their spouses, and eight wonderful grandchildren that I get to see every week.

Shauna Eastlee

Customer Relationship Manager

I found my way to Thrivent when one of my previous co-workers was hired to work for Emerald Financial Group. She referred me when a position opened and I couldn’t turn down the opportunity. I have been with Thrivent more than 10 years, and I’m thankful for our great clients and my caring team. I love rocks and collect them. I also love to visit my family cabin, and spend time with my husband, my kids and grandkids.

Adam Holtz

Director of Financial Planning and Investment Operations

I joined Emerald Financial Group because I wanted to be part of an organization whose Christian values align with my own—serving others and using money as a tool to do God’s work. My family are members of Grace Lutheran Church in Dodge Center, where my wife, Kelly, and our two kids are active in mission support. I also serve on the Board of Elders. I am an avid sports fan and have run a fantasy football league since 1996.
