It is hard to believe that I am entering my 16th year with Thrivent! I joined Thrivent Financial as a Financial Associate in 2005 & opened up a downtown Lakeland office. In 2008 I took a leadership position & have served in that capacity for the past 12 years. I am excited to return to a Lakeland office this year & look forward to building a strong team here in Polk County. I enjoy meeting entrepreneurial minded people who have a strong desire to help guide others in their financial journey. Quite often we find that our advisors come from other successful business careers, and are leaders in their church and in the community. Who do you know that would be a good addition to our team? Prior to becoming a Financial Associate with Thrivent, I served as the Head Men's Soccer coach at Florida Southern College, and taught in the Sports Management program. My wife Debbie and I have attended St. Paul Lutheran for 25 years. We have two grown children and three grandchildren.
