My commitment to Mammoth and my personal contributions to our town are a source of pride as well as a purposeful obligation to return something back to this unique piece of paradise in the High Sierra.
My name is often associated with The Mammoth Lakes Foundation, where I served as a member of the board of directors. In the year 2000, I received the prestigious Volunteer of the Year Award for my role chairing the College Bond campaign. I felt honoured to be a part of the positive changes in our community that reflect our support for higher education and the arts, and I will continue to spend my time promoting our resort during this next phase of Mammoth Opportunity. My current role is with the Eastern Sierra Disabled Sports program as an advisor and as a parent of a participant.
As for my credentials, I earned a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of California while part of the Mammoth Lakes community. I am indeed a long term resident, and well familiar with the local climate. I sell property because I believe in our resort's future.
My office is in The Village with Mammoth Village Properties. Our prime location means that the properties we represent are on a 24/7 Video Reel in the busiest walkway in town. For Sellers who want maximum exposure on their properties, this is ideal. My graduate degree has an emphasis in marketing, and this I do well.
For buyers, I have a strong knowledge base of the community, the neighborhoods, and the condominium projects. (Please see my book Mammoth Condominium Guide on Amazon.com)
“Cheryl Wood was incredible, everything smooth and easy.” Buyer for a Premiere home.
“Cheryl Wood did an outstanding job for us. Her effort went beyond the purchase of the property. We looked at finished product all over Mammoth as well.” Buyers for two lots in a prestigious neighborhood.
“She was amazing and so professional.” Sellers of a Premiere home.
“I own multiple properties and have worked with many Realtors. Cheryl by far is the most honest, insightful and diligent person I’ve come across. Truly the smoothest and most delightful real estate transaction I’ve completed. I would refer her to anyone! She is amazing.” Buyer of a Townhome by the lifts.
My husband Rick and I have spoken often at genetic family support conferences about the ins and outs of tending to our relationship against the backdrop of chaos and crisis that often is part of the journey alongside disability, and the art of care-taking one's self in the absence of opportunity to do so with the tasks required to tend to a loved one with special needs.
Basic positive psychology, faith and hope in a desired outcome, and daily attention to what we say to ourselves and to others leads this session about training for joy alongside disability, because the sorrow is a given. We can choose to notice and perhaps grab the joy if we learn how.
We strive for a more inclusive session with stories from other participants in the group setting and ideas aimed at keeping us committed to maintaining our own nurturing alongside the choices inherent in raising a child with disability.
Parenting Davis requires constant adjusting to new truths, acknowledging and moving past sadness over what will never be, and enthusiastically accepting the better points of what is. Having an 8 year-old in diapers streak a business cocktail party during his clothes-off phase is a tension breaker. Standing by as medical personnel whisk him away to save him is a heart breaker. Safe grace is somewhere in the middle.
