My love affair with jewelry started young. I still wear my first gold baby ring although it doesn't quite fit the same as it did when I was a baby. I remember walking by After Midnight Jewelers when I was in high school wishing to be able to work there. It didn't take long for my dream to come true. I was working in a dreadful corporate retail job when Scott rescued me! I’m so glad he did. I've grown a lot as a person working here. I used to be very quiet and extremely shy. All of our wonderful clients helped bring me out of my shell. Having something like a love for jewelry in common with every person who walks through our door makes work not feel like work at all.
When I'm not working I love to cook. My fiance, Aaron, is always a willing guinea pig. I haven't made a thing that he hasn't liked. His favorite by far has been Gnocchi. Although I'm not sure he could tell you what they’re called. I remember being young and “helping” my mom make dinners. That's where it all started, in my first apartment, I remember craving my mom’s red sauce. I called her for the recipe and she told me “my nose will know when I get it right” and I figured it out myself. When it was time for Aaron and I to buy our house in 2019 I based most of my house buying decision on how much cabinet space I would have in the kitchen. I spent so much time in the kitchen that I wasn't willing to sacrifice what I wanted in that regard.
I like to call the amazing people I work with my strange little work family, and it's true, I've never worked with a better group of people.
