Jo joined BEJS in 2013 as a Client Service associate, but her penchant for diversity quickly expanded her role. In addition to assisting clients with insurance portfolio management, Jo provides front-line support to John Barry and Clint Crocker; she assists with HR and various company operations; and she maintains this website. With her positive attitude and her coolness under pressure, Jo is able to successfully juggle the variety of things that are thrown at her every day.
Jo started her career in property management and real estate sales in her hometown of Charleston, South Carolina in 2000. Soon after, she took those same positions to a national real estate developer and lived in Florida, Texas, and Arizona. After a stint in the financial services industry in Northern Virginia, Jo finally landed in the Charlotte area and joined BEJS.
Jo lives in Huntersville with her children, Hayden and Lexi, who inspire her every day to remain young at heart, focus on the positives, and always be grateful for the blessings in life. When she’s not working or playing mom, Jo enjoys being active in the outdoors. Water skiing, biking, and basketball are a few of her favorite activities; however, being born and raised on the coast of South Carolina, for Jo, nothing compares to being on the beach with her feet in the sand.
