Brandon's Story



Our dad is the rock of our family. He has shown us that with hard work, compassion and truth, you can do good in this world.
— Gracie & Drake, Brandon's daughter and son

Brandon is the loving husband to Kelly Thyen (from New Brighton, MN) and two kids, Gracie and Drake. They are active members of the community.



I really enjoyed coaching with Brandon this past year for the Chisago Lakes A Pee Wees. He leads with intensity, hard work, and determination. He is very thorough in his work and focused on goals, but perhaps what I appreciate the most about Brandon is that though he leads with conviction, he listens to and treats people with respect...and can make work fun in the process.
— Coach Wade Dorcas

Brandon stays very active in the community as a volunteer coach for his sons hockey team.



Brandon’s dedication to wellness extends beyond himself; from encouraging friends to join him in biking to guiding his family in healthy eating. He is teaching our kids such wonderful habits they will have for the rest of their lives.
— Kelly Thyen, Brandon's Wife

Putting his hard-work and dedication to practice, Brandon has been training and competing in triathlons for over a decade. He has even convinced his kids and friends to join him!

Healthy eating habits are also something he has instilled within his community and family. He believes both health of mind and body are necessary.
