About Kristen Lafranzo
At Thrivent, we view money not as a goal, but as a tool — one that can afford you a life rich in meaning and gratitude. We believe humanity thrives when individuals make the most of all they've been given. I'm here to help you do just that.
I provide personalized financial guidance to people at all stages of life. I've been building my career in the financial services industry since 2011 and joined Thrivent in 2014, where I served as Operations Manager for the Shoreline Group until 2022. I am now pursuing my passion to further serve the needs of our clients and community as a Financial Advisor with Thrivent. I saw early on the impact our work can have on individuals, families, businesses and communities and am proud to align my efforts with Thrivent - a Fortune 500 company that is committed to helping people achieve financial clarity.
I earned my Bachelor Degree in Finance from University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, with concentrations in Risk, Insurance, and Financial Planning. My husband and I enjoy exploring the outdoors with our two daughters and sharing our love of music with them through various genres and instruments.
