Raised in Utah, I grew up as a nationally ranked competitive figure skater. My love for skating and snowboarding kept me in Utah where I graduated from the University of Utah with a B.S. in Marketing. My boyfriend (now husband) Josh and I share a mutual passion for the outdoors and outerwear design that brought us to Lake Tahoe in 2002. Together we ran a business representing the global lifestyle brand Oakley and were recognized for top sales performance in North America.
Josh, a former professional skier/ mountain biker and I, a snowboarder/climber instantly fell in love with Tahoe life. Josh remains in the snow action sports industry today, we have 2 beautiful daughters and are grateful to be living, loving, growing and recreating in Tahoe.
In 2004 my interest turned to commercial design and real estate. My experience in sales, marketing and design with a global brand like Oakley was a natural fit for commercial village strategy, specializing in destination resort markets. I obtained my real estate brokers license and launched my career in commercial real estate curating dynamic village experiences that showcase the mountain lifestyle and local community for both The Village at Northstar & The Village at Squaw Valley (resulting collectively in $38+ MM in annual village gross sales).
After 12 years in the commercial real estate world, my mind and heart were ready to be in service of others and my community in a new way. My passion has always been to create space for people to share priceless experiences, make precious memories and live the best of the Tahoe lifestyle. Helping people find their sacred space, their home in the mountains to do just that is my most rewarding work.
During the early years in the commercial real estate department at the Village at Northstar, I got to know both Tori Long and Don Carr, who were working in the resort real estate sales office. I was very comfortable joining their team because of their firm’s culture of service to their clients and to the community.
My passion for meeting new people, my love and understanding of Tahoe is coupled with 18 years of sales experience which enable me to understand my clients’ needs and connect them with their dream property and community in an authentic way.
My dedication to honoring and preserving the Tahoe community, our kids and the environment is very real and runs deep. It’s the reason I have served as Executive Producer of the Shane McConkey Foundation (for 8 years and counting) and helped raise over $300K for local programs.
I am devoted to health, wellness and laughter. When I am not working, you will find me and my family at the yoga studio (I teach), dancing, riding bikes, skiing/snowboarding, surfing, camping and all the other incredible activities life in CA offers.
