I’ve been in the industry since 2016 and am a GIA Graduate Gemologist. I enjoy seeing people’s faces light up when they enter the store and sharing their happy moments with them. I love to hear stories about marriage proposals, heirloom jewelry pieces, and sharing that sentimental value with my clients. I am honored to be working around amazing, talented, and rare people and even rarer and unique gemstones.
I have been an avid mineral collector since I was a child. Some of my fondest memories are searching for Lake Superior agates and Thompsonite on the shores of Two Harbors, Minnesota with my grandfather. I also enjoy long solo hikes and exploring national parks and monuments, collecting music on vinyl, and researching American History. I really enjoy public speaking and volunteer work and have been a member of the Minnesota Masons since 2002.
