I was born and bred New Englander, raised by a nurse/librarian and a Marine officer in New Hampshire and Rhode Island. I have an older brother, a Marine, who now lives in Vermont, running his own business.

I was lucky enough when I was seven to start working for my aunt and uncle's auction company. Each summer, my responsibility grew, as did my pay; by the time I went to college, I ran the crew at the personal property sales and the standard transmission trucks. Setting up the auction locations and tents and clerking and checking people out and in. The longstanding joke in the family was that when the company was big enough, I would be hired full-time to take over.

After undergrad in Virginia, I worked in multiple industries across various geographic locations. I started operations at a financial brokerage house. Then I worked for the world's largest multinational corporation, GE, in international logistics. I also had the opportunity to work out west for a resort in a National Park and other jobs in retail and title management. After a bit of time, I decided I needed to go back to school. I went back to my first place of higher learning, the University of Georgia. I was lucky enough to be accepted to the School of Public Administration. I received my MPA from them with a concentration in Public Policy. Go Dawgs!

Then I got the infamous call. It was my time to come home and work in the family business full time.
I now have three designations (CAI, AMM, BAS), hold auctioneer licenses in four states, have my real estate license and serve as the NAA's Treasurer.

I also have the honor of being the American Numismatic Associations auctioneer at their summer session since 2015 and a life member. It is fantastic to combine my two major types of auctions into one. The Young Numismatists (13-17) run the auction, and the fund benefits their scholarships to attend the summer sessions and other events.

I run our real estate and benefit auction divisions. I have had the fortune to hammer down many price records for our coin & stamp auction company. My life now is in constant flux, and I love it. I never knew that my past experiences were training me for this job.
