A gem of a career. A career in gems.
I was recently a guest on Career Buzz, on CIUT 89.5 FM in the Greater Toronto Area, as part of a special 1-hour long segment on careers in diamonds! Joining me on the show was a good friend, and former Chief Gemmologist of Ontario, Ron Gashinski.
The show took listeners through the twists and turns in my career that led to the founding of Kimberfire and explored the journey of a diamond from mine to polished gem.
Career Buzz is produced and hosted by Mark Franklin, president of CareerCycles. Since 2006, Career Buzz radio has been empowering lives, enriching careers and energizing organizations.
