Who She Be:
When not focusing on real estate, you will likely find Sher exploring the local parks and hiking areas in and around Nashville with her wonderfully amazing husband, Arden von Haeger, and her two 95 pound rescued dogs, Buddy and Mickey. Singing, songwriting, scriptwriting, and reading a good mystery (while languishing in the tub) are also favorite activities. She is a fan of theater, local art galleries (Frist!), local events, live original music, swing dancing, the Predators, small dinnner parties and REALLY loves to travel. Her heart is drawn to children's causes, and she has been a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer and mediator.
