I have always been financially aware, which prompted me to obtain my MBA from U of Iowa and have since developed a passion to help people build their own financial awareness. I got hooked on this career after needing to examine mistakes and successes in my financial roadmap. At a serendipitous moment, I discovered Thrivent and the tagline "connecting faith and finance for good". Immediately intrigued, I decided to commit to help people develop strategies that align with their goals and values. Retirement, college and life's happenings are all intertwined and I find excitement as clients are able to connect all of these. Together, we can develop protection and investment strategies designed to meet your specific goals. I have 3 amazing kids growing up at a rate I feel less than comfortable with: Tyler, Alex and Ryan. All are active in church, sports, scouts, music and school. My spare time involves following their schedules, home improvement, running/biking, music and church.
