Anna has been with Carlson Financial since 2012. As a financial advisor, she meets with clients to develop strategies and make recommendations for building and protecting clients’ assets. Anna enjoys establishing great relationships with each client, as these relationships are what truly make us partners to our clients. In her spare time, Anna spends most of her time with family and friends. While she doesn’t enjoy losing to her mother (Kay Lyn) playing cards (especially Nertz), she does enjoy beating her in Yahtzee approximately 28% of the time.
Senior Wealth Advisor, CLU, CEO
Carl brings more than 25 years of experience in the financial industry, including 10 years of experience in wealth management and insurance. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Houston. Carl founded Carlson Financial after becoming frustrated with the lack of honesty and transparency he saw in the financial services industry. His goal was and continues to be to put the client’s (and not the company’s) interests first. He makes it his personal mission to maximize our clients’ incomes while protecting and preserving their nest eggs. Carl is the featured financial resource for four TV stations and is a frequent speaker; covering an array of financial topics, issues, and opportunities for those nearing and in retirement. He and his wife, Kay Lyn, have been married for over 35 years and they have three children: Emily, Anna and Ethan.
Chief Investment Officer
Dan has over 25 years of experience in market analysis and system development for business finance, marketing, data systems and investments. He graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree. While managing his own investments business, he innovated a system to measure the impact that market momentum and trends have on price in the financial markets. He believes these technical indicators give us a picture of the fundamentals and psychology that drive the share price. Dan and his wife, Penny, live in Topeka, Kansas, and have been married over 20 years. They have three children and enjoy family summer vacations to the beach and winter snow skiing in Colorado.
