Sarah Diaz Pennell

MEET SARAH

After living in California for over a decade, my husband and I wanted to raise our family back in Michigan. We visited Traverse City a few years ago in the summer and fell in love with it. It reminded us of Lake Tahoe but with so much more to offer. We made the decision to pack up and move from Los Angeles.

What do I love about living here? We live near a National Park, there are plenty of great local restaurants and wineries, and we have found a great school for my two boys to attend. We spend weekends paddle boarding on the lake and finding new hikes/adventures. If you love the snow, there are tons of activities to do with kids! Heads up – winters are long here, so plan a sun vacation in the winter to stay sane!

I work remotely for Amazon and I have truly enjoyed working remotely from Traverse City. Before COVID, I traveled a lot and the airport is so easy to get in and out of. There is truly no other place like the Grand Traverse Region and I look forward to it growing and expanding.
