You will often hear me laughing and enjoying my time with collectors and other dealers while conducting business at coins shows. Having a helpful, kind and engaging personality are all crucial to a successful business, especially ours that requires comfort and trust between buyer and seller.
I find it enjoyable to learn about coins, after all, they are fascinating pieces of history with a story to tell and secrets to give away, which is why I enjoy learning about varieties and discovering new ones!
I have endeavored to share what I have learned by contributing information to numerous books, including pricing data to the Guide Book of United States Coinage (the Bible of numismatics), since 1999. When last I looked, I am the only female price contributor to this esteemed work.
Additionally, I have written articles and done video interviews to help expand understanding to collectors on how to sell their coins, what it is like to be a minority owner in the coin business; articles on favorite series, and the like.
Collaboration with key individuals and other coin companies is something enjoy doing, which is why I also catalog for a world class auction firm, Legend Rare Coin Auctions, on a regular basis.
I enjoy working with the Young Numismatists Program in conjunction with the Blue Ridge Numismatic Association in Dalton, GA and assisting young people in their numismatic endeavors while providing educational programs on diverse coin related topics to help expand and broaden their understanding of numismatics.
