Many glasses of wine and evenings-on-the-town ago, we met for the first time at Le P’tit Bar on the urging of a mutual friend in America. We were both new to Lausanne; its cobble-stoned streets, cafés and charming squares. As our friendship grew, so did our love for our adopted city. The Lausanne Guide is where we share our discoveries; it is a place where our love affair with this city can continue to blossom and where we hope you will be inspired to get out and explore with us.
Sarah; Founder and Editor
Sarah is a native Texan whose love for travel and francophone culture first led her to Europe over a decade ago, where a charming Swiss man then convinced her to stay. By day, she’s a communicator in the travel industry; by night, she’s a wife, mother, and Lausanne enthusiast, forever in search of the perfect spot to have drinks with friends.
Tanya; Founder and Editor
Tanya is a Chilean-American, born in Japan, and raised in California and Ohio. She joined her husband for an adventure abroad in Switzerland almost a decade ago and has never looked back. Her formal training is in education of English Literature and Drama, but her current days are filled with constant hustling; from freelance writing, photography, and consulting, to ensuring her two young kids survive (and maybe thrive within) each day here in Lausanne.
Gabriel Garcia Marengo; Digital Mastermind & Photographer
Gabriel hails from Cordoba, Argentina and is The Lausanne Guide’s favorite jack-of-all-trades. He is a talented photographer and designer, specializing in User Experience and User Interface Design, and perhaps most importantly, he makes out-of-this-world empanadas and alfajores.
Jackie Courtine; Event Coordinator
Jackie is a proud Texan who was swooped up in Los Angeles by a Frenchman and firmly planted in Switzerland 5 years ago. She lives in Lausanne with her mad scientist husband, daughter, and cactus Carlos. She lends The Lausanne Guide her talents for event planning and management – she’s the only person we know who can whip up a dinner for 60 people without breaking a sweat.
