Johnson began her career at Borsheims in 1987 and established the first Human Resources Department at Borsheims.

In addition, Johnson oversaw several operational areas of Borsheims, including Human Resources, Customer Service, Gift Wrap and Shipping, Facilities, and the business’s in-house Repair Shop.

She is highly regarded as a people-driven, passionate leader with an unmatched enthusiasm for Borsheims.

She has been a tireless champion of promoting Borsheims’ Signature Service, and her dedication to our business is something I will always hold dear to my heart.”

Johnson is looking forward to spending more time with family in retirement, including her husband, John, sons, Jeff, and Jack and her 2 labs, Nelson, and Finn. She will also enjoy travelling, visiting her parents, and continuing her hobbies of biking, yoga, reading and spending time with friends.




This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
