Skip is a founding partner of Great Waters Financial and leads the Vadnais Heights office. After growing up in Hibbing, Skip was an All-American college wrestler, and his practice has been built on applying that same work ethic to serving his clients. He is a son of educators and inherited a love of teaching--making complex financial topics simple. That ability has made him a popular guest on the local news, and speaker at colleges, community events, churches, and non-profits. Skip is a regular guest on FOX 9 where he shares his insights on timely financial topics, and has also appeared on WCCO, KARE 11, and KSTP.
He believes that common sense, hard work, and the advice of professionals can help you chart a course toward financial freedom and a secure retirement. Skip and his team tailor comprehensive retirement plans for their clients. And he works with high net-worth families to enjoy and grow their wealth, give intentionally, and through working with their CPA's and attorneys, arrange their estates to pass tax-efficiently.
Skip lives in Maplewood, MN with his wife Amy and three daughters--Selah, Ariella, and Haven. They enjoy spending quality time together, traveling to new places, and serving at church. Skip is an avid golfer, bow-hunter, and waterskier.
