Air Force Pilot Nate Cavender feels blessed to have survived two wars, and a long separation from him beautiful wife. He's now living in Dallas and will be the speaker at the Oak Cliff Lions Club Wednesday, October 12, 2016 at noon. The public is invited to attend.

Air Force Pilot and Texas Tech University Graduate Nate Cavender will be the speaker at the Oak Cliff Lions Club this Wednesday, October 12, 2016 and noon. The public is invited.

Nate earned a Finance degree with an emphasis in Real Estate, and a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force.

He flew in two wars, received a number of awards--including three air medals. After almost nine years, Nate separated from the military as a Captain, and returned to his family in Dallas.

“I was gone 200-plus days a year while in the military and realized I missed my friends and family and wanted to start a family of my own.” Now he’s back home and also back to the other area of his life he loves: the world of finance.

Though he’s no longer saving the world in the military, he feels he’s helping people protect their personal lives by saving them the anguish of losing their assets. After one year working at Merrill Lynch, Nate met Erin Botsford while flying a Botsford client in their private Jet. After being introduced to her through the client, Nate learned her strategy designed to protect her clients’ personal wealth and signed on soon after because, he says, “I really believe in what we are doing here.”

In fact, he’s taken on his stepfather as a client, moving his retirement from his former company into the Botsford Financial umbrella. His step-father plans to retire from the police force soon.

Now that Nate is “grounded” in ocean-less Dallas, he has his beautiful wife, new puppy Kai, and family and friends close by. His plan to work hard to get ahead in life seems to have been a good one. Now his goal is to work hard to help keep safe and secure his clients’ futures through his financial advice.

The public is invited to meet Nate and the members of the Oak Cliff Lions on Wednesday at noon at Weiss Auditorium on the Methodist Medical Campus. Lunch is $9.50. Contact secretary Sara Kitto to RSVP:
