Nanette Hansel

I am a principal, project manager, and office director for Ascent’s Lake Tahoe office who seeks to build high-performing teams and deliver exceptional results. My core values of kindness, integrity, and teamwork serve as guiding principles that influence my every action and decision. As a natural team player, I strongly believe in creating an inclusive and collaborative work environment that empowers every individual to succeed. I prioritize building strong relationships with colleagues and clients alike, and I approach every challenge with a team-oriented spirit that fosters effective communication and collaboration.

Outside of work, I am an outdoors enthusiast who takes full advantage of the recreational opportunities offered by the beautiful Lake Tahoe area. In addition, I find great fulfillment in volunteering with local nonprofit and community service groups, as well as watching my children participate in sports and other teen activities. Spending quality time with my friends and family and cooking hot soup on a cold day are among my other favorite pastimes.
