About Rachel Hooker

I love working with individuals and families to bring the pieces of their financial puzzle together. Building a personal relationship allows me to provide financial guidance based on what’s important to you. I count it a privilege that I am able to serve as a partner to my clients on their financial journey, understanding that finances can be a vulnerable, private, and overwhelming topic. My goal is help you to be wise with money so you can be equipped to serve your family and live generously! At the heart of Thrivent are the values of faith, community, and generosity. Those are values I share. In addition to my work at Thrivent, I am also a wife, mom, daughter, sister, and friend. I am an active member at St. John’s Lutheran Church. I enjoy being able to create a generous world view for my children, Kaleb and Kiersten, by involving them in serving our church and community through participation in Thrivent Action teams and other Thrivent generosity initiatives.
