Chef Sara hails from the farmlands of North Dakota. Although her former years were spent on a landlocked farm, she spent the majority of her childhood summers at her family’s lake cabin in Northern Minnesota and fell completely in love with being on the water. Just 3 years ago she decided to turn her passion into reality and leave her career in sales to live an adventurous life at sea – trading in miles of pounding the pavement for miles of exploring the open ocean. Sara has traveled all over Europe inspiring her new life as chef and first mate on many different yachts in Greece, Croatia, the Bahamas, and Italy (Sardinia & Corsica). Eventually she made her way to the beautiful crystal blue waters of the Virgin Islands. She’s so grateful for her travels and experiences around Europe, but is truly thrilled to call Tellstar and the Virgin Islands her new home. Sara earned a Yacht Chef certificate from the Super Yacht Culinary Academy in Cape Town, South Africa. She loves cooking almost as much as she loves eating. Her farm roots inspire made from scratch recipes and her work ethic is demonstrated by her enthusiasm in the galley. She loves working with farmers on island to incorporate local produce as well as sourcing sustainably caught fish from local fisherman.

"I wanted to let the experiences of our fantastic week onboard Tellstar to settle in before adding a personal note so the time has come to share some recollections of our charter. Even so I’m sure I’ll miss a few highlights. Let’s just start with our warm and welcoming greeting from the entire crew and our first view of the absolutely gorgeous Seventy7 Lagoon. Nothing short of a spectacular yacht – we didn’t know it yet but it didn’t take long for us to realize the crew was equally spectacular in their own rights. You all must be experienced at keeping your laughter under wraps to the land dwellers trying to find their sea legs but we had an especially challenging experience as the Christmas winds came late this year and we had pretty consistent winds in excess of 20 - 25 knots. Thank you for making us feel safe at all times. Each of you have such individual talents but collectively – what a team! I loved when Jaimey sent Jake to a nearby yacht so he could have a moment of puppy time – nice and considerate to provide surprises to each other when the opportunity presents itself. And you never stop. We’re enjoying water activities while you are in the water keeping that yacht looking beautiful. We’re busy with breakfast and you’re all making up the cabins/likewise dinner and turning down the beds. So fun to walk out of my cabin to hear Jack and Jake having a very serious discussion on the table settings for the evening – humorous to me but just a simple example on how the details were important to you at every turn." - January 2020
"Dear Jack, Jaimey and Jake,
Thank you, thank you for taking such great care of us this week. It was a pleasure to get to know you. The week was relaxing and magical. Thanks especially for arranging Akim to play the Steel drums for us and for the chance to play on the Hobie 18, we had so much fun with Jake! The food was delicious and interesting and we loved having you join us for Thanksgiving dinner. Thanks also to Jake, intrepid, kind and so much fun to hang with! Best wishes for a great chartering season! Lisa" - November 2019
Jack, Jaimey and Jake,
Thank you so much for a wonderful trip. You both made our experience a great one. Your passion for sailing is evident which enhances the joy we felt. Jaimey your cooking was amazing! What a fun and relaxing trip!
Take good care and we will be following you on social media to see what you’re up to! - November 2019
Lets start by mentioning this incredible vessel. Perfect design and excellent workmanship. Made everyone envious. Then the crew. They made the best, even better. Lively Captain Jack leads one of the best teams on the ocean. Attentive service, safe hands, a wonderfully authentic experience. Jaimey's highest quality and creative menu means we are leaving with a few extra pounds but it's well worth it, everything was outstanding and she's an amazing anchor girl too!Jake is the man! He should be up for the next James Bond. A true gentleman and always engaged in his mission to take care of us all, at all times. A wonderful experience on a badass yacht with our dearest and industry leaders Captain and crew. - July 2019
What can we say? The most wonderful trip with the most wonderful people! For many people trips like this may be normal but to us it is a once in a life time experience that we will never forget. Not only did you take us to places that have never been before but you made us feel pampered and comfortable beyond compare. Between both of you being ready every moment to tend to whatever need we have big or small to the extreme joy you both do it with. This trip was amazing! Jack your knowledge about well everything made the trip interesting along with the beautiful sights we learned so much too! Jaimey, we are going home with a few extra pounds on us that we have to blame on you! For 8 days not only did we have incredible sights you also thrilled our taste buds and were surprising us every day with your culinary master pieces. Together the two of you make the most unforgettable memories for people and are a pure joy to be around Thanks to the generosity of our good friend and your experience we truly had the time of our lives!
The Best Always, Valent and Joe - July 2019
