Meet Our Team!

 
Megan Young - Owner
Megan is incredibly grateful and honored to run Forever Young Fine Jewelers.  It was not something she had planned for her life, but she feels that God definitely had a hand in it, she loves it, and she wouldn't change it!
Megan and her husband Jeremy began Forever Young Fine Jewelers together in April 2016.  Jeremy had previously worked for McArthur Jewelers and when the McArthurs decided to close and retire, Megan and Jeremy began Forever Young in the same location.
Jeremy suffered with depression, bipolar, narcolepsy as well as a myriad of other health conditions which led to him ending his life in April 2018.
Megan has continued to run the store with Jeremy watching over as a guardian angel.  She continues to be amazed at the blessings and people that have come in the store just at the right time to make it what it is today.
Megan graduated as Valedictorian from BYU with a BA in Dance and a Minor in Business Management.  Along with running Forever Young Fine Jewelers, Megan is an adjunct dance professor at Utah Tech University. She also loves running marathons, hiking, singing, and listening to audible books. 
But Megan's favorite way to spend her time is raising and going on adventures with her and Jeremy's three children: Hadley, Conrad, and Ava.
Megan's integrity is of utmost importance to her.  Her goal is to treat each person that walks through the door with the respect and kindness that she would want if she were in their shoes.  She strives to keep a welcoming environment for both her team members and her customers.
"Thank you for visiting our website. We would be honored to be your jeweler." 
Mike Nixon - Sales Manager
We feel very blessed to have Mike at our store! He loves assisting our customers and is happy to help our customers in any way he can. Whether it's answering your questions, taking in your repairs, creating a beautiful custom design, or helping you to find the perfect gift for your loved one--Mike is here for you!
Mike was born and raised in Holladay, UT and graduated from Olympus High School in 1990. After one year at Utah State University he served an LDS mission to Taipei, Taiwan learning Mandarin Chinese. He graduated from the University of Utah in Chinese and Economics and worked in the International Admissions office while attending school.
After graduation, he took a sales job at William's Jewelers, a family owned store in Salt Lake City. He quickly fell in love with the jewelry industry and working closely with customers. Within a few years he became the store manager and spent 25 years building many valued relationships with the customers of William's Jewelers. Desiring a new challenge and a change of scenery to Southern Utah, he jumped at the chance to join the team at Forever Young Fine Jewelers and hopes to spend many years here.
Mike is very passionate about making sure his customers receive the best possible experience and are treated like family when they are in the store. He tries to go the extra mile so that each customer feels like they are valued no matter the size of the purchase. What Mike loves most about being in jewelry, is the people that he gets to develop relationships with. He truly enjoys being involved in so many special occasions and appreciates the trust his customers put in him.
Away from the store, Mike loves spending time with his wife Casey and their four kids. He loves to golf, travel, hike, kayak and almost any outdoor activity. He loves all sports but especially soccer, basketball and football and is a huge Jazz, Utes and Real Salt Lake fan. He is also an avid reader of books and loves to attend plays, concerts, and musical events.

 Amy Lander - Bench Jeweler
Macie McArthur - Bench Jeweler
 

Macie is a graduate from the highly esteemed New Approach School for Jewelers located in Nashville, TN. While there, her goal was to learn all that she would need to know to be the best bench jeweler she could be.

Macie's attention to detail and desire to get things just right serves her well. Whether it be a simple jewelry repair or an intricate one, Macie's goal is to give it her 100%.   She is an great team player and customer service is a top priority to her. 

Macie's interest in jewelry began at age 16 when she discovered ring making video on YouTube.  After watching the video, she got an apprenticeship under Kyler Frei who taught her the basics and encouraged her to attend the New Approach School.

In her free time, Macie enjoys reading, listening to music, drawing, and on rare occasions playing her trombone. She also enjoys working on her craft at home where she can continue to experiment, practice and create!
