Sarah Madison


Portfolio Manager

Hometown: New Ulm, MN
Education: South Dakota State University

I’ve been lucky enough to spend more than 20 years doing my hobby every day (and getting paid for it)!

I chose to work in financial services because I was always quirky good with money, saving, and investing, and I wanted to use my gifts to help others achieve financial security. The best part of my job is when clients tell me they don’t worry because they know I’m taking care of everything.

On top of my bachelor’s in business economics from SDSU, I hold a hard-earned Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) designation from the CFA Institute.

I’ve dedicated most of my career to First National Wealth Management, helping our clients to navigate the complex world of investing since 2006.

At home, I’m blessed with a great husband, Thomas; three kids; and a pug. They keep me busy, but not too busy to serve on the board for the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation and chair its Investment Management Committee.

My other hobbies include crafting, sunset kayaking, connecting with nature, and enjoying live music and comedy. Also, I love photography so much that I have more than 60,000 pictures on my phone; let me know if you want to see a few!
