I love being a financial associate with Thrivent. For 33 years, I worked in the medical profession as a field service engineer, but I felt God’s calling to help people in a different way. Helping folks navigate through financial decisions & life events, that’s what brings me the greatest satisfaction. Retirement is a big piece of everyone’s financial picture, and it’s why I studied to become a Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP®). Lots of people focus on saving for retirement – but few specialize in transitioning those savings into income for living in retirement. The choices you make on social security, pensions and IRA withdrawals will have a profound impact on a happy retirement. Giving back and sharing my blessings is a huge part of my life – I am grateful to be able to help make a difference in the churches I serve & in the community in which I live. If there is a community event going on, look for me, and my wife Jean, under the black Thrivent tent and say hello!
