I live in Orange County, California. I was adopted at three days old in Indianapolis and grew up in New Albany, Indiana. I loved my adoptive mother, who convinced me I could become anything. Since I was always fascinated with beautiful diamonds and gems, I chose to be the CEO of Gallery of Diamonds jewelers in Newport Beach.
In honor of my adoptive mother and the birth mother I have never known, I established the Why Mom Deserves a Diamond® essay contest. Every year, thousands of kids submit words of love and appreciation for the chance to win a grand prize diamond to give to their mothers. Today the contest is in honor of all moms, and is the largest mothers appreciation contest in the US. (maybe the world!)
