Sara Baus


Personal Trust Officer

“I love building meaningful relationships with clients and helping them achieve their goals.”

Sara graduated from Augustana University and went on to earn her Juris Doctor degree at the University of South Dakota. She worked in the legal industry for six years in various roles before joining the First National Bank team in 2019.

The Sioux Falls native was drawn to the Bank’s culture and strong reputation in the community. She’s found that her favorite part of her role is helping clients be successful.

Sara volunteers her time as an advocate for the Sioux Falls Area Court Appointed Special Advocate Program (CASA) and as a member of the Bank’s Sioux Empire United Way committee. When she isn’t at work, you can find her golfing, going on walks with her dog, spending time with her husband and friends, reading, and catching up on the latest Netflix series.
