Gem Shopping Network, Inc.
I started Gem Shopping Network back in May 1997. After launching and hosting the first and original gemstone show with another network, I saw the need for an honest shopping channel who would educate the public in the world of gemology. Also, I felt it important to allow the public to buy from a main-source jeweler.
How I Got Here:
As a child, I had a love for gemology and science. Over years of building a personal gemstone collection and developing relationships with the mine owners where several gems are sourced, my career path eventually led me to TV.
What I Do For Fun:
Having two teenaged daughters keeps me on the move. I love spending time with them and taking trips to the beach when I’m not traveling and securing merchandise for the company.
My Big Dream:
I would really like to reach more people around the country with our story and our merchandise. Overcoming the misinformation and inferior product from other channels is a major challenge.
What’s Next for Me:
In retirement, I would really like to travel the world and spend quality time with my daughters and their future families. I have also wanted to play an active role in assisting organizations that care for orphaned children.
