About Gretchen Franti

I grew up in a household where planning for your future was important. When I was 16, my parents introduced me to Thrivent and purchased my very first life insurance policy to protect me as I embarked on my first steps into adulthood. After growing up in Rochester, NY and graduating from the University of Dayton in OH, I have now lived in Virginia for over 20 years. My husband and I met at our church in Alexandria and have been married for 21 years. I worked as a photographer in the DC metro area for 10 years and then moved to the country to start a family. My three boys are all in school now, and I’m excited to have a fulfilling career with the company that I have been a member of since I was a teenager. I enjoy meeting new people as well as connecting deeper with the people I already know. I enjoy volunteering at the school, the local gym and my church. I stay busy running my three boys to and from sporting activities, and together we like to go camping and hiking.
