About Gabe Groothuis

I was born and raised here in Eastern Iowa. Growing up, I worked various odd jobs, started some of my own ventures, and always enjoyed helping people find unique solutions to their problems. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a double major and minor in business.

Throughout college, I was involved with the John Papa-john Entrepreneurial Center, UNI Outdoors, and UNI Intramural sports.

After graduating, I knew I wanted to stay here in the Cedar Valley, and I accepted an offer to work here at Thrivent. In the spring of 2022, I married my best friend Leyla, and we have been blessed to put roots down here in Iowa.

I enjoy working with our team to provide the best care possible to professionals, families, and business owners as they dream, plan, and work to achieve their goals.

Outside of Thrivent, I can be found working on a rental property, enjoying any kind of outdoor activity, and serving at my local church Bethany Bible chapel.

If you made it this far I respect your commitment and follow-through!
