Thomas Jensen, MSc, CFP®

Wealth Management Advisor

Thomas grew up in Denmark and attended college in the United Kingdom. He and his wife moved to the U.S. in 2003 and now live in Portland, Oregon with their daughter, a cat and a few ornery, cackling chickens. They help him rise and shine. When he's not wrangling chickens (or the cat) he enjoys a day on the river fly fishing - still waiting for that 20+ lbs steelhead!
