Meet Maren


As a graduate of Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD, I’ve spent my career exploring a variety of roles within marketing, media and business development. After two years in broadcast journalism, I moved into a marketing strategy focus for private school systems, health care and real estate development. I’m excited to join the talented team at Pinnacle Wealth and bring more than a decade of marketing and business development experience to the financial planning industry.

I love spending time with my family and spend most of my free time following my two kids around to the activities. My passion project for the past eight years has been building a fashion and lifestyle blog, Midwest In Style. I also enjoy traveling, reading and barre workouts.
