Born and raised in Vermont - I'm just a country girl at heart. I started buying and selling at the age of 13 with my grandmother and her sisters. I owe all I have learned about antiques and collectables to them. After high school, I went into the Army and was stationed in Germany. I'm a veteran of Desert Storm/Desert Shield. After serving, I returned home to Vermont were I opened and operated two restaurants for about eight years, but I continued to deal in antiques. So, I decided to go to Reppert Auctioneering School in Indiana and then moved to Maine in December 2013. I love being an auctioneer - it's the best job on earth!
