About Me

Hi, I'm Terrie Amundson. I specialize in helping recent and soon to be retirees with tax efficient income planning. I can help you identify your dreams and work toward achieving your goals in this new stage of life.

I've served clients in the financial services industry for 30 years. I'm a former teacher/coach, and I fulfill my passion for coaching and education by helping my clients make informed decisions in their financial life. I do this by providing all pertinent information and translating it into easy-to-understand terms.

I live in Mendota Heights, MN with my wife, Christie, a Physical Therapist, and our 7 children. Having a family big enough to field an entire team, we stay active by playing a variety of sports and finding new adventures every time we explore new places.

I'm passionate about giving back to our community by volunteering as a Development Committee Member for ACES (Athletes Committed to Educating Students) and a Special Olympics Coach.

➕ Q&A with Terrie Amundson

Q: What is your proudest personal accomplishment?

A: Completing the Boston Marathon in 2006.

Q: Do you belong to any professional organizations?

A: I belong to Good Advisors Finish First, which is a community of advisors who collaborate in pursuit of better outcomes for clients.

Q: Why did you get into the financial services industry?

A: I had no understanding of financial products and dealt with only cash until after I graduated from college. This lack of knowledge led me to make a number of financial mistakes early on in my life and wanted to use my education background to help others not only mitigate mistakes but make sound financial decisions.
