Marla was born and raised in the mid western United States. Growing up in a small farm town, her passion for animals and desire to make a difference in the world intensified.
After graduating high school in Carson City, Nevada, Marla went on to study marketing, information technology and real estate. She moved around the Pacific Northwest and eventually settled in Bend Oregon with her family. This is where she began a career in Real Estate in 2006.
In 2018 Marla took a huge leap of faith and moved to Costa Rica, a decision she has never regretted. She maintains her Principal Broker real estate license in the United States and operates a thriving referral business.
Marla spends her time in Costa Rica training dogs, connecting with nature and helping the people of Costa Rica. As a founding member and working board member of Costa Ballena Disaster Relief and Support, Marla realizes that giving back to her community is a priority.
With time to spare and being too young to officially retire, Marla has founded OnPoint Real Estate Solutions Costa Rica. Launching this new business offers buyers and sellers options when transferring real property in Costa Rica.
