Birthplace: Fridley, MN

Year signed with Pinnacle: 2010

Scouting Report: I graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth in 1999, selling books door to door for The Southwestern Company while in college and a few years after. It was the best training/experience of my life and much more important than my degree. Sold door to door for years after that with Comcast and Qwest. I consider myself super lucky to have been able to learn and sell insurance with my dad Mike Thompson for many years until he retired. I still go door to door selling insurance to this day, many times with my kids!
