Andy grew up in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota and graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he began his studies in Aerospace Engineering. However, his interest in business and his desire to help people led him to taking an internship with a financial planner in 1998 and changing his major to Economics. He graduated from the U of I in 2000.
Andy moved back to Minneapolis, and in 2001 he began his financial planning career with Ameriprise. He moved his practice to Waddell & Reed, Inc. in 2003. He earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ mark in 2016. Then, in 2017 he earned the Chartered Financial Consultant® designation and founded Manifest Wealth Management. At Manifest Wealth Management, we have a group of independent advisors offering Securities and Advisory Services through LPL Financial.
Andy is active in the Minnesota Chapter of the Financial Planning Association. He and his wife Nichole and their children Zoey and Zachary live in Plymouth, MN; they are active in their community and in their church, Beautiful Savior Lutheran.
