UPDATES ON THE OFFICE:

2019 Roth & IRA Contributions: The extended July 15, 2020 deadline for making 2019 contributions to your IRA or Roth IRA is quickly approaching! (This is still the deadline even if you have a tax-filing extension beyond then.)  Be sure to get your 2019 contribution in well before the deadline for it to be accounted for accordingly. **While I do not provide tax advice, I can work closely with your accountant to help ensure a well-rounded plan.​
 

UPDATES ON THE TEAM:

Kris... Even though some sporting events were canceled for this spring/summer, the boys are still keeping Kris and Emily busier than ever! They enjoy playing baseball and soccer in the yard, visiting any of North Iowa's parks, going to the beach, riding bikes, building dominos, chalk drawing on the driveway, and going out on the boat. 

Dawn... Dawn has been enjoying getting to spend more time with her four daughters, whose work, studies, and social activities became home-centered. She's also been able to get deeper than usual Spring cleaning done and complete small home projects that have been on the back burner due to a normally, faster paced life.

Ivy... After waiting for exam centers to repoen due to COVID-19, was finally able to sit for and pass her Series 66 exam on May 8th! She will soon be sitting for Iowa Life and Health Insurance exams as well. Outside of work, she's been able to spend a lot of time cycling and hiking in the beautiful weather!

UPDATES ON THE TEAM:

... Kris and Emily recently took the boys to their first ever Hawkeye game in Iowa City. They were able to get courtside to meet some members of the men's basketball team, and the Hawks won! - so they really enjoyed themselves. The boys both participated in indoor soccer this winter, and even though they enjoyed it, are eager to play outside again. Kris and Emily are looking forward to their annual family vacation in Florida. 

... Dawn had a friend from Canada visit in February and attended the Color of the Wind Kite Festival in Clear Lake for the first time ever. It was a great winter day for the festivities, and they were very impressed by all of the sizes, designs, and COLORS of kites, which reminded them a lot of the Macy's Day Parade balloons on Thanksgiving.

... Ivy has been learning A LOT, and not only passed her SIE exam in January, but also passed her Series 7 exam on February 28th as well!  When not studying, she likes to attend band concerts around the country, already having gone to SIX since the start of 2020, with three more to see in upcoming weeks.

Updates on the Team:

We are excited to welcome Ivy Pruisman to the LFG team.  Pruisman grew up in Clear Lake, IA and is a recent graduate of the University of Northern Iowa where she double majored in Financial Management and Real Estate.  She recently started the process of becoming a licensed Financial Advisor with the long-term goal of becoming a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™. 

When she's not studying for her upcoming exams, Ivy will be working alongside Kris and Dawn assisting with existing LFG clients.  Once she becomes fully licensed, she will also start building her own book of business.  She has the “client first” mentality that is so important to our team and clients.  And it will be a huge benefit to have three people that can help with any issues or needs you may have.
