Business Portrait Spotlight: Gemologist – Mark Villanueva
Mark Villanueva – CBC Gemologist, has a long history of serving his community and his nation.
I recently had the opportunity to meet and photograph Mark Villanueva of CBC Jewelry Store, here in El Paso, TX. Mark is a certified gemologist (R.G.A., A.J.P.) who really believes in giving back to the community.
At the age of 40, Mark left a thriving business to join the Army – going through Infantry and Air Assault Schools – because he wanted to serve his country. In just 4 short years, Mark made it to the rank of Staff Sergeant before leaving the military. His office at the jewelry store is lined with coins and pictures from his days in the Army, including a closeup picture of him with General David Petraeus.
Mark’s on the board of directors for a number of civic groups including the Border Patrol Museum and the Ronald McDonald House. He is also a member of the Rotary Club and the El Paso Chamber of Commerce.
Way to go, Mark! Thank you for your service!
