Brian Roan -- Shipping & Receiving Specialist
Sylvia McMillan -- Accounting / Payroll / Human Resources / Employee Benefits
Originally from Washington State, Sylvia moved to the Nashville, Tennessee area in 2020, and she loves it here! She was still working part-time from home for a company in Washington doing real estate work when she developed an interest in investing in precious metals, so she visited Nashville Coin Gallery several times to purchase gold and silver from us. Fascinated by the business itself, liking the way we do business, and really "clicking" with the staff here, she expressed interest in joining our team -- so she did, and we're delighted to have her!
Sylvia joined the Nashville Coin Gallery team in November of 2022, and will be working in our Accounting & HR department, handling accounting functions, payroll, human resources, employee benefits and compliance issues, and general office management functions. In her free time, Sylvia enjoys hiking, antiquing and virtually anything outdoors.
Sam Mizell -- Photography & Videography
Sam joined the Nashville Coin Gallery team in November, 2020 as a Shipping and Receiving Specialist, and quickly established himself as yet another “Rock Star” Nashville Coin Gallery employee. For a year and a half, Sam basically “owned” the responsibility for all things related to shipping and receiving, from assembling boxes to packing and securing the contents, from ensuring every box is adequately insured to generating shipping labels, from ordering shipping supplies to videotaping all shipping and receiving activities — you name it. If it had anything to do with shipping or receiving, Sam did it.
While he was here, Sam also became quite proficient at doing our coin photography and website video production, further cementing his “rock star” status!
Sadly for us, in early May of 2022, Sam took another full-time job in the music business — his first love — but he still works for us part-time now, doing some of our coin photography and videography.
In his free time, Sam enjoys writing and performing music.
