About our speakers

Sarah Frieberg was raised on an Iowa farm, and took an early interest in savings and investing, opening her first accounts when she was in the sixth grade. That interest became a strength as she earned degrees from Drake University in Finance, Accounting and Marketing. Sarah works to encourage, empower and inspire clients. She describes her job in finances as bumpers in the bowling alley. She keeps errant balls in play and out of the gutter because it’s not about scoring a perfect game but making progress. She is married to Luke and they are HGTV junkies, love to travel on a shoestring budget and spend their free time renovating old homes. Sarah earned her degrees from Drake University in Finance, Accounting and Marketing.
