Meet Kristie,
Proprietor of Catawba Island Jewelers


My name is Kristie Pooley, and I bring you over 25+ years of "hands on" experience in the jewelry industry. I am a Certified Diamontologist, and have attended GIA Diamond Grading School as well as hold a certificate with GIA in Jewelry Display. 


I earned an Associates Degree in Business Management, and an Associates Degree in Marketing and Sales. I graduated in June 2002 with my Bachelor of Science Degree. All degrees were earned at The University of Toledo. 


I started working for a family owned jewelry chain in Ohio where I held positions in management, merchandising and diamond buying. I then moved to outside sales, where I worked for 20 years calling on corporations as well as small businesses. I have owned my own store in Colorado, and have now returned to my forever home on the lake.  Catawba Island Jewelers incorporates all of my professional experience and I have poured my heart and soul into making it the business it has become!


The main focus of Catawba Island Jewelers is to serve YOU, our customers, and help improve our local community.


- Kristie Pooley, Owner and Operator
