I am an authorized sales representative for Marshall Pierce & Company, located on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue. Prior to getting into the jewelry business, I practiced Intellectual Property law at various firms in the Chicago area. During that time, I studied with the Gemological Institute of America and received degrees in diamond, colored stone and pearl grading. I left firm life to work for Jerry Bern, Jr. at Marshall Pierce & Company. After Chicago, my family and I moved to the Seattle area where I received my LLM in Intellectual Property at the University of Washington School of Law. Though the intention was to go back to law, I couldn’t shake my desire to get back into jewelry. Using my GIA education and sales experience, I am excited for the opportunity to provide the quality of service and extraordinary inventory that Marshall Pierce has to offer to the Seattle area.
