Up until I was twelve years old, my dad was in the Air Force and my family traveled around the world following his assignments. When my dad retired, we moved to a small hobby farm in northern Minnesota. Talk about culture shock! My childhood had consisted of exotic locations and cultures, and now encompassed milking cows and goats. From my travels, I learned how to embrace diversity and developed an appreciation for meeting new people from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds. Life on the farm taught me the importance of hard work, responsibility, and compassion. As the Retirement Plan Client Relationship and Education Manager at Carlson Capital Management, I am blessed to have the opportunity to use these lessons in my work with retirement plan participants and plan sponsors. I enjoy assisting plan participants in maximizing the benefit of their retirement account to reach their retirement goals. I also have the pleasure of working with plan sponsor and company owners to assist them with creating and maintaining a retirement plan that meets their needs and goals. Traveling is still a big part of my life; I am usually less than eight months away from an overseas trip.
