    Marry Me Jewelry

    We're a family owned and operated jewelry store. We are the third generation of jewelers, with over 40 years of experience repairing, manufacturing, and appraising jewelry. We work with Gold, Silver, Platinum, and Palladium.
    My father was a jeweler and so was his father before him. My brothers are jewelers and I've taught my  cousins to be jewelers. My son will probably also be a jeweler (don't tell him I said that though, it's his decision to make). While career path in my family hasn't been all that original, the jewelry we design is.I have a passion for designing and enjoy using my imagination. With generations of experience, we make unique, custom and creative jewelry. Thanks for checking us out!

    Oasis Senior Advisors
    RN, MBA, Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)®
    I have been a registered nurse since 1996 and completed my MBA from Western Governors University in 2006. After experiencing firsthand, the stress that health issues can place on a family in caring for a loved one, I decided to change careers.  I looked for an opportunity that would utilize my nursing skills and business background, and was introduced to Oasis. What I love about Oasis Senior Advisors is the personal approach. I offer a free service for seniors and families who are looking for assisted living options.  I meet with families face-to-face to help them sort through their choices based on physical, medical, financial, and geographical needs.  My personal and professional passion has always been to help people and make a difference, and assisting clients to determine the best quality of life is a privilege and a responsibility that I take very seriously.
