About Shawn Vradenburg

I am a Financial Advisor with Thrivent with offices in Hudson, Wisconsin and Eagan, Minnesota. I earned my Bachelor of Science at the University of Minnesota in Applied Economics with a Finance emphasis. Before Thrivent, I worked as an executive for a small Minnesota based company and was a Sergeant in the Army National Guard. I chose to build my practice here at Thrivent because Thrivent, being a not for profit Christian membership organization, gives my clients and financial advisors opportunities to live generous lives in many ways that is unique and special in our industry. I have been married to my best friend Ashley since 2013 and we love spending time with our children Ivadell, Adonira and Lototele.
