Born in San Francisco and raised in Orange County, Jardine has had a love of the arts since childhood. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Art History from San Francisco State University and a Graduate Gemologist degree from the Gemological Institute of America. While living in “The City”, Jardine spent two years working at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, which houses a collection that echoes many of the items she now sees on a regular basis here at Moran’s, including Arts & Crafts furniture and decor, couture, and fine European furnishings.
As Moran’s Decorative Art and Jewelry Cataloguer, Jardine researches, describes and creates condition reports for “everything not in a frame”, allowing her to use both her passion for art and decorative objects as well as her well-honed skills in gemology in her work every day.
In her spare time, she loves to read novels, run, and take advantage of all the good shows streaming has to offer.
