Senior Financial Advisor, CFP®, MSPFP, MPASSM
Joining the team at RIA Advisors as a Senior Financial Advisor in 2023, Sarah Buenger brings over 23 years of experience in serving and advising high net worth individuals in all aspects of financial planning, relationship management, and investment management. Sarah graduated from Mays Business School at Texas A&M University with a degree in Corporate Finance. She continued her education, receiving the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation in 2003, and her master’s degree in personal financial planning in 2015.
In addition to her work with RIA, Sarah is a lecturer for the Financial Planning program at Texas A&M. During her time in the financial services industry, Sarah has always tended to gravitate towards mentoring and teaching so her involvement as a lecturer in the Financial Planning department for Texas A&M University is her way of giving back to the industry through educating and developing the next generation of planners. She currently teaches courses in insurance, estate planning, and the financial planning capstone.
Sarah is a member of the Financial Planning Association (FPA). She is very involved in the community having volunteered her time for the NAPFA South Region Board, the Children’s Museum of the Brazos Valley Board, Junior League of Bryan-College Station, Junior Achievement, Habitat for Humanity, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, St. Joseph Catholic Church, St. Joseph Catholic School system, and Anderson-Shiro CISD.
Originally a native of Baytown, Sarah has spent the last 20+ years in Anderson, Texas with her husband Kenneth, daughter Avery, and two sons, Ryan and Kyle. The older two kids are now attending Texas A&M. The Buenger’s are a baseball family so you can find them almost year-round at a baseball field watching their son play or watching their favorite teams.
