After graduating from the University of Minnesota, Jo specialized in the hospitality industry working in management in both restaurants and hotels in several different states including Minnesota, North Dakota, Colorado and California. Using her extensive experience in business management, she moved into the printing and publishing industry and back home to Minnesota to raise her children with the Midwest values that she grew up with. Specializing in growing revenue through sales and marketing and with the success of managing several projects and businesses for someone else, Jo decided she wanted to combine her interest and branch out on her own with a career in real estate sales.
