Has it been 27 years already? I guess I’m officially a jewelry veteran! My actual title is Certified Gemologist Appraiser. I also have a certification in pearls and stringing. I’ve always been a people-person; so spending time with people every day is hardly work. It’s what I love to do. My customers are like my friends, truly. And when my workday is over I spend more time socializing, ideally on the lake. I also really love international travel.
