Kris Thorvaldson

Thank you for visiting our site and your interest in LPL Financial. I have called Rawlins and Carbon County home for over 40 years. In that time I have found the winters can be harsh, the wind never-ending and we’re somewhat isolated with the next biggest town at least 90 miles away in any direction. But I have also found that the people of Carbon County are our greatest asset. I truly enjoy serving the people of Carbon County and why my family chooses to call Rawlins home.

I became a financial advisor in 2003 through Community First (Bank) Investment Services. I moved to Edward Jones in 2006 after a bank buyout and then to LPL Financial in 2012. LPL Financial is the largest independent broker/dealer in the nation. An independent financial advisor works for and serves only their clients and not a big firm too with production quotas and incentives designed to sell investments to clients.

I graduated from Rawlins High School and from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor of Science degree from the College of Business (Marketing / Management minor). My wife, Wendy, is also a Rawlins High School and University of Wyoming graduate. She is the Nurse Education Coordinator and an ICU nurse at Memorial Hospital of Carbon County. We have two daughters: Sydney and Alexis.

My family enjoys running, traveling, camping and spending time with family and friends.

Office Assistant

I have lived in Rawlins since 1993 and I Love it!

I grew up in a suburb of Minneapolis/St.Paul and moved to Glenrock Wyoming just before I turned 12, talk about a culture shock! Wyoming is my home and I cannot imagine living anywhere else, I met my husband of 31 years here!
Rawlins is a great place, the people here are very friendly and helpful. I have lived all over Wyoming and Rawlins is the best by far!

I truly love helping people, it does not have to be just work related. I will however go out of my way to help our clients, I will take paperwork to their home, go to their home to notarize something for them.

It’s all about customer service and helping them in any way I can.

So come to LPL Financial and see for yourself, we would love to help you too!
