She moved to the San Francisco Bay Area at the age of 17 to earn her degree in Molecular and Cell Biology at UC Berkeley. Upon graduation, she worked on assay development in the laboratory, but quickly realized she wanted to support the scientific community as a whole. She then began her career as a sales representative and has continued to serve researchers in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and industrial segment. She simultaneously continued her education and earned a Masters of Business Administration from San Jose State University, a Masters of Science in Biotechnology and Biodefense and a National Security Certificate from Johns Hopkins University. During this time, she managed sensitive transactions in excess of $45 million and began to contemplate other applications of her skill set.
Sharon purchased her first home in 2016 and realized how difficult the home buying process can be. This experience inspired her earn her real estate license to ensure that other individuals are safeguarded against these challenges. She also knew that it was imperative to align herself with people whose values resonate with her own. Sharon is a person of integrity and is committed to creating an excellent experience for home buyers and sellers in Sacramento and the East San Francisco Bay Area. She focuses on this geography because she has lived and worked in the area for the last 18 years. In January of 2019, she joined Compass because of the brokerage's capacity to be dynamic, innovative, and give back to local communities. Shortly thereafter, she was introduced to Eileen Townsend, a compassionate and seasoned agent in the East San Francisco Bay Area.

Sharon joined forces with Eileen Townsend & Team and looks forward to facilitating a seamless and successful transaction for each of her clients.
