A short 7 years later, they have grown from a team of two to now a team of seven. Through this time Aaron has grown with the practice and is now the director of operations, where he oversees day to day operations, as well as business planning and budgeting. He also supports in his capacity as an associate financial advisor to help design and implement plans for clients.

Fax 402-483-7876

Adrian is the District Director of Operations. Adrian’s NM career began in the Network Office in Omaha after she graduated from Chadron State College in 2003. Since then she has worn many hats. Currently, one of her top priorities is to oversee the District Office operations in addition to training and supervising current SET associates. The SET associates work with new financial representatives to plan, develop and implement solutions that fit their clients unique needs. Adrian has recently become an activity coach for the District where she plays a role in developing new representatives by tracking activity expectations and coaching them towards their goals on a weekly basis. Last but not least, she serves as the On-site Technology Coordinator. Helping new representatives, interns and associates set up computers, trouble-shoot technology issues, and stay current with software updates.     

Adrian’s favorite hat to wear is the one labeled “mom”. With her husband, Shawn, she has two awesome kiddos, Elle and William. They enjoy spending time together with their two dogs (Coco and Pepper), travelling, playing and watching lots of soccer, and have recently taken up ping pong – thanks to the purchase of a table for their game room! Like many moms, she also likes to capture everything on film and document it via a scrapbook.
