Craig C. Kissick began his lifelong love affair with Natural History when he was given a Fluorite specimen, and book about minerals, at the age of nine. After studying business at The University of Texas at Austin, working in the financial industry, and then obtaining his graduate degree from SMU, he went to work for The Discovery Store where his passion for the geological sciences was ignited. He later operated his own company specializing in marketing decorative mineral and fossil specimens to architectural firms as well as interior designers and individual collectors. Kissick was a member of the Retail Advisory Board for the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, and is an active member of the Dallas Paleontological Society. He is on the Board of Directors of the Association of Applied Paleontological Sciences (AAPS) and is currently serving as the President. Kissick joined Heritage nearly 10 years ago and has served as Director of Nature and Science for America’s Auction House for the past five years helping to lead and expand the category for the company. He has written numerous articles for various publications and often lectures to groups related to natural history, appraisals, and education. Kissick is often interviewed about the marketplace.

Jenny Milani joined Heritage Auctions in 2013. She is currently the Associate Director of Nature and Science, which is an all-encompassing role. She received an Honors Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology from the University of Texas at Arlington, then went on to receive a Master of Archaeology degree from Flinders University in South Australia. Both degrees aroused her love for science, and, in particular, geology. Her master’s thesis focused on Indigenous Rock Art and Geophysics. After attaining her master’s degree, she joined the United States Peace Corps and served two successful years as an environmental volunteer, working closely with the farmers in Jamaica. During her more than 7 years’ experience at Heritage, she has broadened a knowledge of what collectors covet in the fascinating field of Natural History. Jenny is a current member of the Association of Applied Paleontological Sciences (AAPS) and will often work with the Perot Museum of Nature and Science on special projects. Additionally, she is pursuing her Graduate Colored Stones certification through the GIA. Jenny is dedicated to furthering the success of this unique category at Heritage Auctions and in helping it to reach new heights in growth and sales.
