Maria Ostergaard

As a SmartPro Financial Advisor, my mission is to empower clients through strategic financial planning. My journey into the realm of finance is rooted in a comprehensive background as a corporate executive, where I led teams and managed complex financial operations to steer organizations towards success. This experience has equipped me with a unique perspective on financial planning, emphasizing not only the importance of solid financial foundations but also the value of strategic growth and stability.

I later transitioned from a corporate executive to an entrepreneur, founding and running a successful personal training business. This endeavor was not just a business; it was a reflection of my personal commitment to discipline, perseverance, and the transformative power of setting and achieving goals. Today, I transfer these principles into my role as a Financial Advisor.

My approach to financial advising is deeply influenced by the principles of Dave Ramsey, a testament to my belief in the power of debt freedom and the importance of prudent investing. I advocate for these principles not only because they promote financial stability but also because they empower individuals to take control of their financial future.

Beyond my professional life, I am a passionate fitness enthusiast. My dedication to 5am CrossFit sessions and participation in various athletic competitions, mirrors the dedication I bring to financial advising. Just as achieving athletic goals requires commitment and a strategic plan, so does achieving financial security.

In both my personal and professional life, I thrive on learning, exploration, and making lasting memories with my husband and family. Entrusting me with your financial advising needs results in a partner dedicated to your financial wellbeing. Together, we’ll navigate the path to financial peace.
