Ellen Deproto

General Manager

After graduating from University of California, Santa Cruz and traveling the world, I moved back to my home town of Guerneville and started working at the family business. I am passionate about creating a positive, fun-filled work environment and I love to see this positivity pay forward to our clients, vendors and guests.

Megan Perkins

Account Management

I moved to Guerneville in 2005 with my husband and I started working at Russian River Vacation Homes at the end of 2009 – just in time for Thanksgiving! I love being active in the community, gardening and the arts. The diverse, inclusive, fun and funky Russian River area suits me.

I have happily worked for Russian River Vacation Homes for just over two years. I’ve spend the majority of my career working in hospitality management of all sorts, including hotels, vacation homes, and retirement communities. I am originally from northern Minnesota, and then I spent several years in Kansas.

I have lived and worked in a number of cities in the US, England, Holland, Austria and Germany, but I love living and working in West Sonoma County the most.  For most of my life I have worked with the built environment, the homes and buildings where we live and work.  Now I get to find vacation homes for guests from all over the country and show them the beauty and recreational opportunities t

Leah Brorstrom

Maintenance Coordinator

Raised in West Sonoma County, I’ve always been enamored with the Russian River.  A strong believer in R + R,  be it rest and relaxation, redwoods and river, renewal and rejuvenation, it’s also my priority to also promote respect and responsibility for this richly diverse watershed and all her inhabitants.  I’m honored to serve in furthering connection to this incredible haven.

Over 40 years ago I chose the Russian River as my home.  Through the years it has been a pleasure to share this beautiful place with my friends and family, and through our business, with the world. It is even nicer that I can do this while working with my family.

I have been managing property in Sonoma County for 35 years. As a licensed real estate broker and active community member it has been my goal to provide safe and clean homes and commercial spaces that make people happy to be in them. I have been instrumental in renovating many properties, most recently the renovation of a large block of storefronts in Guerneville.
