Vice President, Head of Custom, Repair, and Appraisal Departments
I started part time with Worthmore Jewelers, Inc. in 1996. As soon as Harris realized what an awesome asset I was to Worthmore, he begged me to start full time. Finally, after a year of listening to him beg, I felt sorry for him and decided to help him out.
That happened in May of 2000. I have been a part of Worthmore ever since, and in 2006 I was promoted to Vice President. I also head the custom, repair, and appraisal departments here at Worthmore. So, whether you are looking for that special one of a kind piece, have repair needs or need a new or updated jewelry or watch appraisal for your insurance records or estate planning, I’m your person!
I am a GIA Graduate Gemologist (check out my wall of fame). I am also an Accredited Quartz Watch Technician from American Horological Institute, a member of the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers, and a graduate from the School of Hard Knocks and the Harris Botnick Institute of Never Ending Knowledge (a little brown nosing never hurts!).
As my quest for knowledge continued, I received a BS in International Business with a minor in Marketing. (This was to ensure Harris stays in business so I have a job!). I am now studying to get my Master’s in Exercise Science (for those who know me, I am an exercise fanatic!). As you can see, I love to learn.
With the current commodity market Worthmore Jewelers suggests making sure all your appraisals values are up to date. If you do not have any of your special items insured or have not had your appraisals updated in 2008 be sure to contact me to set up an appointment to review your items. There is never a charge for a consultation to make sure your appraisals are up to date. One of the many things Worthmore’s appraisal clients like most is that you do not have to leave your items to get them appraised. We realize your jewelry and watches are special. During our appointment, I will clean, photograph and take all the necessary information to accurately describe and value your items with the most thorough appraisal in the industry. Once I have all the information I need, you get to take all your items with you. I then use my notes to research and value your items from which I write your appraisal and mail to you.
Please drop me an email or call, as I would love to talk to you about your jewelry and appraisal needs.
