I grew up in a small community in North Dakota. I attended the University of Minnesota-Moorhead. I graduated with two degrees-Political Science and Paralegal Studies in Estate and Tax. At college, I met my husband, Rick, in our Freshmen English class. We have three children. All three have attended and achieved college degrees. One of my passions is to help others understand many processes of education and education planning.


I have been involved with many school and community activities. Currently helping with the Hudson Backpack program and Hudson Housing Authority.

    CFP®, FIC, CLTC®

    I'm a financial consultant with experience helping individuals and families reach their financial goals. I often say the most important part of my job is listening. I need to understand my clients’ aspirations and it’s only then, that I can help them build a financial roadmap for making them happen. Especially in today’s economy, reaching financial goals may seem scarier and harder than ever. I am a guide helping clients navigate the journey and reach their financial goals. I bring a listening ear, knowledge and experience. Specialties: Retirement Income Planning, Investment Strategies, Charitable Gifting and Generosity, and Legacy Planning.


    I earned my Bachelor of Science at the University of Minnesota in Applied Economics with a Finance emphasis. Before Thrivent, I worked as an executive for a small Minnesota based company and was a Sergeant in the Army National Guard. I chose to build my practice here at Thrivent because Thrivent, being a not for profit Christian membership organization, gives my clients and financial advisors opportunities to live generous lives in many ways that is unique and special in our industry. I have been married to my best friend Ashley since 2013 and we love spending time with our children Ivadell, Adonira and Lototele.
