  Amy started her career over 10 years ago in advertising and marketing working for some of the top companies in the world.  Her career has sent her around the country. She started in the South Florida market with her focus on radio, event and social media sales. She was then recruited by CBS in Pittsburgh where her client growth and development skills made her a top associate. There she met her husband who’s career required the move to Northern New Jersey where she continued to work in media sales and marketing but decided that after 10 years in the industry and plenty of client success she would go out on her own. She is now proud to be the head marketing director for PSAG. Amy’s strong  belief that client appreciation and delivering what you promise is the key to a healthy business, fits in perfectly with PSAG.

Philatelic Stamp Authentication And Grading, Inc.  Expert Committee
Beginning of the seminar…handing out the printed notes of the seminar to be given “An Expertizing Workshop – How to Build Your Own Reference Collection”.

Randy helping a US Federal Judge go over his collection and determine what stamps would be beneficial to get expertized and graded, a service PSAG performs at shows to help collectors out who aren’t familiar with the need or expertizing and grading.body   
Typical scene at stamp show…that’s me second from left standing…borrowing a can of Ronsonol lighter fluid…a necessary compound needed to examine stamps and you can’t take it on a plane for obvious reasons of flammability. Thus we need to find some that someone local has brought.
