VP of Development North Sierra Homes
Dan’s first days in the Lost Sierra were spent as a Forestry student while attending UC Berkeley. His field courses took him throughout the area, instilling in him a deep connection with the land and people he encountered. He then fought fires for the U.S. Forest Service on the Plumas National Forest for three years before launching his career in architecture and construction, leading to his own Design/Build firm.
As luck would have it, the opportunity to return to the area with the Nakoma development team presented itself and he has been part of that team for the past 10 years. As VP of Development, resort General Manager, and Director of Sales, Dan’s knowledge of and vision for the Nakoma Community knows no equal.
He loves raising his family in such a safe, supportive environment and it gives him great satisfaction to watch his boys develop an abiding connection with the natural environment.
As the principal in Nakoma’s in-house Design-Build firm, North Sierra Homes, Dan has the opportunity to help bring each client’s vision into actuality, a privilege he relishes.
A love for big, wild places brought Jennifer to the Lost Sierra nearly 15 years ago. Having lived in both Montana and Colorado, she was surprised and delighted to discover such spaciousness in her native California.
Since 2014 she has been part of the Nakoma management team in a variety of roles including Communications, Membership, Wedding Sales, and the catch-all category of “Everything Else.”
You’ll often find her hiking and swimming in the summer and skiing and show shoeing in the winter. She is involved in numerous community organizations and believes strongly that small communities are places where anyone who wants to can make a significant difference. She is excited to share her experience and knowledge of Nakoma and the surrounding community to help you imagine yourself at home in the in the Lost Sierra.
