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. 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. I have recently taken on more responsibility communicating with prospects and sharing with them the value that our team can bring to them.

 

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 on athletic scholarship for gymnastics at Texas Woman’s University.  My specialty is bars and vault, and I hope to lead our team to another conference championship.  Outside of the gym, our team was successful in winning the academic championship for all college gymnastics teams, earning the highest average team GPA.  

 

Is there anything personal you want to share?

I currently am a sophomore at Texas Woman’s University, 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.
