About Valor Group

Our unique team of financial professionals is comprised entirely of former law enforcement officers, firefighters and military veterans. Having completed our public service careers, we now help peace officers, firefighters, EMS, first responders, military personnel and others craft financial plans to help protect and serve their loved ones while paving a road to retirement. If you've devoted much of your life to keeping others safe, we've been in your shoes. We've walked the walk. We know how crucial it can be to plan for the future – which may include unforeseen circumstances. We're also familiar with your pension plan and other benefits to help alert you to common misconceptions about those assets and help you understand what they likely will – and won't – provide.

      Though my law enforcement career began in Illinois, I spent the majority of my 25 years as a police officer in Minnesota. After I retired from active law enforcement, it was a natural transition to move into another honorable career as a financial representative for Thrivent Financial. With a mission of guiding Christians to be wise with money, Thrivent aligns with my core values and gives me the opportunity to continue serving and protecting the members of my community.

      I am especially honored to help our brothers and sisters in law enforcement. I am committed to guiding them with their financial strategies during their careers and throughout their retired years.

      My wife and I live in Lakeville, Minnesota, where we raised our two children. We attend Hosanna Lutheran Church and enjoy traveling and family trips to our cabin in the woods. I am passionate about giving back to the community and am actively involved in activities benefiting Special Olympics, Young Life and Compassion International, as well as benevolent law enforcement causes. I'm honored to be the Board of Directors President for Protectors' Peak, a Christian retreat in northern Idaho, where we serve public safety, military and clergy.
