About Mary Jo Boswell

My passion for helping others with their financial security is what called me to Thrivent in 2008. I provide sound financial guidance to individuals, families, business owners and foundations. As a Financial Professional, my goal is to establish an ongoing financial relationship with you to help you reach your financial goals in alignment with your personal values. I use a holistic approach by taking a snapshot of where you are now, determining where you would like to be, then developing a roadmap to get you there. I use a variety of strategies tailored specifically to you including investment management, retirement income, tax diversification and legacy planning for those you love or causes important to you.

Over the years, I have held positions in leadership at Thrivent along with serving on boards for Western Reserve Counseling, the Painesville Chamber of Commerce and Pilgrim Lutheran Brethren Church. I have a BA from Notre Dame College of Ohio. My professional licenses include the Life & Health Insurance Licenses along with the FINRA Series 7 General Securities Representative and FINRA Series 66 Uniform Combined State Law. I have obtained the Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP) designation from the American College of Financial Planning and I am a Certified Kingdom Advisor (CKA). I serve clients in Northeastern Ohio and have office locations in Concord, Westlake & Stow. 

Outside of work, I am an active member at Pilgrim Lutheran Brethren Church, enjoy beach vacations with my husband, Don and spending time with our dog, Gracie.
