About Linda Mackov

Raised in Fairport Harbor, OH, Linda Mackov began her career in the financial industry after graduation from The Ohio State University, working for a nationally-ranked, boutique investment banking firm. After multiple merger/acquisitions of that firm, Linda moved to the personal finance side and joined Thrivent in 2014 as it became apparent that personal finance planning had changed dramatically and become quite complex. Today, as a holistic financial advisor, she helps clients with investment products, retirement income planning, Social Security claiming strategies, diversified asset location for tax efficiency, legacy planning, and identifying risks that derail plans. As a lifelong learner, Linda also strives to educate and empower people by presenting them with creative ideas, solutions and guidance so they can make wise choices. Whether starting your first job, changing jobs/careers, experiencing a life change (birth, death, marriage, divorce), nearing retirement or just wondering if you’re on track, Linda and the Pathways Team would be honored to help you identify objectives and develop a plan that helps you live the life you envision and to thrive confidently. Linda is based in Worthington, OH and when not working, enjoys time with family, hiking in the woods, visits to the ocean, reading and learning about other cultures and destinations.
