How We Started
The foundation was started by Deborah Marie Krupp and her husband Armin Krupp after Deborah's unfortunate illness forced her to leave her engineering job at a Global 500 company. Deborah was diagnosed with aphasia, trigeminal neuralgia, suffered from severe migraines. A proud professional with almost 25 years of experience working with international projects was left sick and without a purpose. In her time of despair, Deborah discovered a new talent and passion she never knew existed. She started designing jewelry and decorations. She wanted her jewelry, story and continuous struggle to not only inspire but help others in need. That’s when GEMASSIST logo was born.
