Biography

Sara came to Plancorp in 2013 with a strong financial background and an even stronger commitment to financial education—particularly for women.

Originally from Cape Girardeau, Sara moved to St. Louis after graduating from college. She learned the value of passive investing and fiduciary-based financial services at her first job, where, as the head of the administrative team, she handled trading, rebalancing and client services. At Plancorp, she draws on these experiences as a Wealth Manager and founder of InspireHer: Plancorp Women’s Initiative.

Sara’s passion for educating women about investing began with her volunteer work at Thrive Pregnancy Resource Center in St. Louis. There she spent several years as a budgeting teacher and counselor for underprivileged women. She continues to volunteer as a mentor with Boys Hope Girls Hope and sponsors two young women in Uganda through Hearts & Hope for Uganda. Her volunteer work has already taken her to Uganda twice, and she can’t wait to go back. In addition to volunteering, Sara enjoys live music, hiking, biking, and most of all, spending time with her husband, Austin, and new son, Abe.
