There I was graduating high school and being tasked with the decision of figuring out what I wanted to do in my life.. 

I had always heard of GIA and how they graded diamonds and issued grading certificates but that was about it. So one summer, little by little, I started doing my research. 

I found out that I could enroll in a course about diamond's and start learning everything there was to know about them. I figured that would be a great start to my career and would get me in the door of the jewelry industry. Considering First People's Jewelers specializes in engagement rings!  

I started the Diamond Course at GIA in Carlsbad, California ( literally right on the beach, so beautiful ) and ever since I have been HOOKED on finding out everything there is to know about the jewelry industry! I felt right at home and became more obsessed every month I was enrolled. Soaking up everything I could until I felt that I was fully informed on everything there was to know about diamonds, so that I could be in the position to help my customers find their perfect diamond ring.

But my obsession with the jewelry industry and gemstones didn't stop there.. little did I know that was only the beginning!!!
