SARA BLACKBURN

Sara graduated from Southeastern Oklahoma State University with a B.A. in Accounting and a M.B.A in Management. During her career, she has served in various capacities within the banking industry, including branch, operational, risk management, marketing, compliance, and project management. She is now Vice President and Fair Banking and CRA Officer for First United Bank, a $13.9 billion purpose-driven financial services organization that operates in over 95 banking centers across Oklahoma and Texas.

In her role, she oversees Fair Banking and CRA regulatory compliance in areas that include Fair Lending, UDAAP, ECOA, and the Community Reinvestment Act.
