“Through being a SmartVestor Pro, I’m able to provide hope and encouragement. My greatest success is when others succeed whether it be through completing their first budget, paying off their first loan, or investing for the first time. I love seeing people of all ages take control of their money and have a feeling of financial peace.”

--Tawna Hermanson


Tawna Hermanson began her career at Financial Strategies Group in 2008 as a Service Manager, then in 2012 became a licensed Financial Advisor. Tawna is pleased to also serve as a Dave Ramsey SmartVestor Pro for Jamestown, Wahpeton, and Fargo, North Dakota and surrounding areas as well as Moorhead, Fergus Falls, Detroit Lakes, and Breckenridge, Minnesota and surrounding areas.

Shortly after graduating from North Dakota State University, Tawna read The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey and started following Ramsey’s biblically based principles. This motivated her to pay off all her student loans in 16 months. This passion has followed her through her career as a Financial Advisor at Financial Strategies Group.

Money problems create worry. Tawna sees people anxiously asking questions like:

“Are we ever going to be able to retire?”

“Can we afford to have another baby?”

“How are we going to pay for ______?”
Tawna knows that this worry could easily cease with a little guidance from a financial advisor and some dedication to take control of their money.

One of Tawna’s strengths is to see the potential in people - they are capable of so much more than what they think. Having a financial plan and someone to keep them accountable can completely change a person's life.

Tawna loves seeing people take control of their money and become financial leaders in their families. She wants to help people improve their financial situations so they can enjoy the fruits of their labor, change their family tree and leave a legacy.


Tawna attended NDSU and received a B.S. in Accounting with minors in English and Fraud Examination.

My Dave Story Update

I visited Ramsey Solutions for the first time in 2012 when we did our debt free scream from the lobby.

I had the privilege to return in 2018.  It was great to shake Dave’s hand once again and take in the atmosphere of the studio. The team there is incredibly welcoming. It was so fun spending the afternoon with them as well as with fellow SmartVestor Pro Travis Giffey, who just so happens to be my big brother.

Six years later, our debt free signature on the wall in the lobby is still there!
