My name is Matthew Oleson, and I have been in the financial planning industry for 16 years. Whether you are just starting out in your career or are preparing for the retirement you've dreamed about, I can help you identify financial opportunities to help you reach your ultimate destination with confidence. From life insurance needs, to investment advice, and retirement planning - I can do it all. I have been happily married to my wife, Kacy, for 12 years and together we have three wonderful kids. We have been foster parents for over 6 years and have recently adopted our daughter. We hope to adopt our foster son shortly. Living out my Christian faith by being generous to others is one of the things I enjoy most. Being a part of the Thrivent community, I have been able to do this more than I could have anywhere else. I am passionate about helping my clients learn to be wise with their money - so that they too can live generously.
