What’s your favorite proposal or anniversary story? A customer of mine took his girlfriend to Asheville, NC and proposed in a hot air balloon.

What advice do you have for a couple getting engaged? Do not stress about the wedding, it’s just a small part of your future together. And, always communicate!

What is your favorite stone and why? Diamonds and sapphires because they are classic.

Why are you in the jewelry business? After 35 years in the business, I’m still as fascinated with gems and jewelry as I was when I first started my GIA courses at the age of 19.

Why do you work for Iroff & Son? Brian hired me!

Are there any personal notes or accomplishments that you would like to share? I’m proud to say that I received my Graduate Gemologist degree when I was 8 months pregnant with my first child.
