Hi!  I’m Jo Eakins!

I am a Denver native and currently live in Greeley Co. I have four grown daughters and 3 grandchildren.

As the owner of a small plumbing company for twenty years, I really do understand the struggles and rewards that come with having a small business.

I have a degree in Business Management from Colorado State University – Global Campus and am excited to be back in an entrepreneurial setting.

My passion for small business extends beyond my own company as I proudly serve as Board President for The Evans Area Chamber of Commerce. I also believe in giving back to my community and as such am a member of the Assistance League of Greeley.

My hobbies include reading, paper crafting, and spending time with family.
