About Michael Herrick

I recently got married to my beautiful and loving wife Kara. We are new to Colorado having moved to the area from California. Prior to Thrivent, I spent 10 years as a Police Officer with the Santa Barbara Police Department. Prior to that, I played college football at Ole Miss and Northern Arizona University. In my spare time I love to spend time with family and friends. You'll often find me on the golf course, at church or exploring the outdoors with my wife.


With a background as a former college quarterback and a police officer for 10 years, I have honed a unique set of skills that have contributed to my success as a financial advisor. My time as a quarterback taught me leadership, strategic thinking, and the ability to perform under pressure, all of which are essential in guiding clients through complex financial decisions. My experience as a police officer further developed my analytical skills, attention to detail, and commitment to serving others. Combining these experiences, I bring a disciplined, proactive, and client-focused approach to financial advising, ensuring that my clients receive tailored and effective financial solutions.

My "Why"

I entered the financial advising industry with a passion for helping people achieve the freedom to live the life they desire. My goal is to empower clients to make informed financial decisions that allow them to pursue their dreams, enjoy their favorite activities, and spend quality time with the people who matter most. By providing personalized financial strategies and guidance, I strive to alleviate financial stress and enable my clients to focus on what truly brings them happiness and fulfillment. I have always been around a team atmosphere, and I truly believe that being a great teammate is what life is all about.


I look forward to becoming your financial "teammate" and helping you cross your financial goal line.
