Maddie Griffith

Client Associate

What inspired you to work at Lantz Financial and when did you join the team?

I was fortunate enough to join the Lantz team when I was 16 years old as a part time associate.  My demanding schedule of 23 hours/week of gymnastics didn’t allow for many free afternoons, so I was grateful for the flexible work schedule and learning opportunity. As a student at Neuqua Valley High School, I had taken several business classes such as accounting and finance, that complimented the knowledge I learned in the office. My last several years with the team have now inspired me to pursue Finance as a major.  

 

What is your background, including skills or characteristics that you want to share?

My background prior to working at Lantz Financial was many years spent building a strong work ethic in the gym.  I believe my athletic background has taught me about commitment and perseverance that I look forward to applying in my future endeavors at Lantz Financial.   

 

What are one or two things you do for clients on a day-to-day basis?

During the summer months if you call into the office, there is a good chance I am the one that greets you.  A logical area of focus for me most recently was on the college savings accounts for our clients and their children. Learning about the accounts and now seeing first-hand how they are used to provide educational support for students like myself has been a wonderful experience.

 

 

Outside the office, what would someone find interesting about you?

I am the 2nd oldest of five daughters, and I also have 3 step siblings.  In gymnastics, I am a two-time level 10 national qualifier, and placed 10th at nationals on bars. I am hoping to add more accolades in the next 4 years of college gymnastics.   

 

Is there anything personal you want to share?

I currently am a freshman at Texas Woman’s University on a gymnastics scholarship, and I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in finance and minor in English.  I have been in gymnastics since I was four and have spent a great portion of my life in the gym.  My goal was always to compete in college gymnastics, and I am proud to have accomplished that.  There were many years of injuries and doubt, but with perseverance I was able to make it happen.
