Sarah has spent most of her life living between the greater Lake Tahoe and Reno area, embracing everything mountain-town living has to offer. Having grown up with the Sierra Nevadas in her backyard, Sarah has an unmatched passion for helping others find their own version of the perfect mountain life.
She studied Geography and Resource Economics at the University of Nevada, Reno, and has a Masters of Applied Science degree in Environmental Policy with a focus on Sustainability.

With roles ranging from hiking guide to lake kayak tour guide under her belt, Sarah is passionate not only about connecting clients with their dream property but serving as their go-to area guide.
Sarah believes there’s a mountain dweller inside of everyone—and there’s nothing she loves more than sharing her insight on everything from the area’s best dog-friendly beaches to hidden-gem hikes with her clients.
