What is the story behind your business or how it got started?
As a retired Coast Guard Officer and Search & Rescue Pilot I’ve spent my life helping others. My favorite part of the job was helping people. I frequently rescued people who were not prepared for the weather or ocean they navigated. I also, advised and helped prepare military members on how to be wise with their money and live on a budget. Both roles taught me the value of planning. I was also drawn to Thrivent as it is a faith-based company and At Thrivent we help people achieve financial clarity, enabling lives full of meaning and gratitude.
What is your favorite thing about being a business in the Lake Country Area?
I love being a part of a business that gives back to the community. You may have seen the “Live Generously” t-shirts throughout town. Thrivent gives these shirts to volunteers after members bring their passions to life helping the community. It’s such a blessing to be able to give back.
