Passions: Horsing Around

began my equestrian adventure in the Girl Scouts but didn’t realize my passion until adulthood. To celebrate my 40th birthday, two friends and I decided to do an inn-to-inn ride. That was 16 years ago and I haven’t stopped riding since.

I find the focus needed for riding is both different and yet the same as the focus needed for jewelry. Each helps maintain a balance for me. Both engage my mind and heart — it is humbling to be part of my customers’ milestones and equally humbling to be allowed to partner with an independent, intelligent, thinking animal. The trust is unconditional in both directions and horses are incredibly forgiving. Plus riding is a lot cheaper and more effective than therapy!

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
