The National Association of Jewelry Appraisers (NAJA) announced the winner of the 2012 ACE© It Conference Scholarship to attend the 39th Annual ACE© It Winter Educational Conference scheduled on February 3 - 4, 2012, in Tucson AZ.

Ms. Kim Pascarella, Grosse Pointe Woods, MI, is the 2012 winner of the annual scholarship.  Ms. Pascarella is a current home study student at the Gemological Institute of America.  Her jewelry journey started as a retail sales associate with a large corporate company. She is currently the General Manager at Joe DiMaggio Jewelers with a rich variety of responsibilities. Ms. Pascarella says, “I love this job. I’m passionate about our clients and this trade.” 

The NAJA Scholarship gives a gemology student a first hand experience of networking with appraisal professionals by attending the highly regarded NAJA educational experience during a time when Tucson devotes itself to gems, jewelry, and minerals.  NAJA believes that appraising is a viable career option for students of gemology.
