My financial services industry experience started with the banking industry. After over a decade in the banking world, I realized I wanted to do more for people. Help them achieve a sense of security with their finances and build relationships. Thrivent Financials’ purpose of connecting faith & finances really spoke to me and how Thrivent provides each member the opportunity to give back to their church, community, or other organizations they are passionate about. Each person and family has a unique story and unique financial goals. It’s my purpose to help them achieve those goals by starting with a conversation. Ryan, my husband, and I started working in the Thief River Falls Community December 2009. During our time here, we have been blessed with two children, we both became business owners, and have enjoyed watching our roots grow deeper into this community.
