About Audrey!

From managing offices to consulting businesses, I’ve worn many hats. Today, I’m the proud founder of three successful ventures in Tallahassee, Florida. When I’m not navigating the world of entrepreneurship or volunteering in my community, you’ll find me where business meets real estate as a Florida Realtor®.

My Entrepreneurial Journey

Originally from Oklahoma, I started on my journey as a first-generation college student.  I wanted to study criminology, which led me to Florida State University, where I graduated in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science in Criminology. Though I am not a criminologist, my academic years laid a strong foundation for my commitment to excellence.  After graduation, I dove into business management, further honing my skills.  I had the privilege of working with the late Benjamin K. Phipps at The Phipps Firm, where I gained invaluable experience that has contributed to the strength and depth of my business acumen. These experiences have shaped me into the entrepreneur and community advocate I am today.   

In 2014, I started FlaBizCo as a web design company and have grown it into a full-service IT and administrative support company.  I have extensive experience in managing business affairs, including human resources, developing new business, office operations, facilities maintenance, and improving efficiencies and processes.  My clients have included attorneys, nurse practitioners, independent contractors, and service providers; the projects have ranged wildly in time and complexity.   

In 2021, I created FlaBizClean to provide janitorial services at The Exchange Building in Tallahassee.  I'm proud to say that our company has experienced remarkable growth since then. The team has expanded to include more than 15 part-time employees.  We're not just cleaning; we're providing building maintenance services, expert short-term rental turnover service, and post-construction clean-up.  

At the end of 2021, I started a bounce house business, BizCoRentals (now known as FlaBizCo Events). Unfortunately for the little ones, but fortunately for me, I sold the inflatables.  We’re just event equipment rentals now.  We have a wedding tent, canopy tents, chairs, tables, stages, dance floors, and audio equipment.  

In 2023, I obtained my Florida real estate license and became part of Ketcham Realty Group. You might wonder why I didn't venture into starting my own brokerage firm right away.  The answer is simple: Florida's real estate regulations require agents to gain experience under a licensed broker before they can operate independently. I chose to team up with Patti Ketcham and her incredible team because Patti embodies the same core values of transparency, honesty, and integrity that are dear to me, making it a perfect match for our professional journey.

In 2024, I launched FlaBizLink, a professional networking group under FlaBizCo Enterprises. Based in Tallahassee, FlaBizLink aims to create a supportive environment for local businesses to connect and collaborate. This initiative aligns with my ongoing efforts to contribute positively to the local business landscape.
