Shortly after, she married her husband John and moved to Fremont, CA to be contract programmers and they fell in love with Tahoe. Her oldest daughter was born in Fremont in 2002. After 2.5 years they moved back to Columbus to work for Total System Services again. This time Sabine rose through the ranks from a programmer to a Technical Analyst and to Assistant Director. Her second daughter was born while living in Columbus.
In 2018, when her oldest daughter was a junior in high school, she moved back to Tahoe as her daughter wanted to go to college and play soccer in California. At that time, she gave up her Assistant Director position and became a Business Analyst, working remotely until her early retirement in December 2020.
Sabine began volunteering for Bread & Broth in August 2018 when her older daughter wanted to volunteer. While filling out the application, Sabine was asked if she wanted to be the Monday Meal’s team #3 coordinator. In March 2020, when the Monday Meal was suspended due to COVID-19, Sabine took over one of the Monday food packing team lead positions and has since led her team in packing bags of food every other Monday. In May 2021, she also got involved in packing bags for the B&B 4 Kids Backpack Program and has packed and distributed bags to kids in need during the Summer Program. In July 2021, Sabine joined the B&B’s Advisory Broad as the Director-Elect and will take over the Director position in October 2021 upon Carol’s retirement.
Sabine enjoys walking her dogs, hiking, biking, kayaking, skiing and watching her daughters play soccer. She loves Tahoe for its peacefulness and beautiful.
