BENEFITING: MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION OF CENTRAL CALIFORNIA
ORGANIZER: MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION OF CENTRAL CALIFORNIA
EVENT DATE: Sep 18, 2016
Nathan is originally from Portland, Oregon, but he moved to Fresno in 1994 to attend Fresno State on a music scholarship. Considering he was never a big fan of the rain, Fresno was a great alternative for him. He is currently an advisor with an independent wealth management firm, AGAPE Planning Partners, INC. AGAPE works with individuals and small businesses throughout 6 states, specializing in helping professional women navigate the intricacies of planning for their financial future. However, his work does not end there, as he also provides life coaching and public speaking services.
Nate is married to his lovely wife, Deseray, and they have three children, ages 21, 12, and 10. He is "Pops" to an adorable granddaughter, Jyselle.
When free time comes along, Nate enjoys hiking, camping, playing tennis, and cycling. He also loves anything that has to do with a board game or karaoke. When he is not being silly/goofy, he thoroughly enjoys giving back to the community through several organizations that he volunteers with.
Make-A-Wish has always had a very special place in Nate’s heart. He was fortunate enough to be a board member from 2005-2011 and have a front row seat to all of the amazing lives that they were able to touch. Anytime Make-A-Wish needs him, Nate will go out of his way to try and help and returns for his second year as a Shoe Guy.
