I was introduced into the numismatic scene my  husband, Scott.  Right after college, and newly married, Scott took me on a nice Saturday drive-so I thought-to a coin show.  I remember my reluctance in walking through the entrance door. However, I tried to enjoy myself mainly by conversing with all the dealers.  It really wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. And, I saw how excited Scott was to see all the treasures.  On our way back home, he informed me he wanted to be a coin dealer.  I was reluctant…  Fast forward 20 years. We have operated a coin business for the past 20 years specializing in all things foreign.  We attend about 15-20 shows a year, mainly in the Pacific Northwest.  We have been attending the ANA shows for 15 years, where we participate in the Treasure Trivia for the youngsters. Although I am not a collector, I enjoy the camaraderie of the fellow dealer,  the sharing of knowledge, and helping the hobby grow.

I live in the Seattle area with my two companions Edgar and Oliver… oh, and Scott, of course.
