Though she began her career as a teacher, Jessika Buell soon moved to sales and marketing. After nearly seven years in that role with Okland Construction, she launched her own app-based errand-running company, Lucky Services, where she has 50 employees. In 2016, she opened her second business, Marketing Concepts Squared. “I love getting to know other business owners,” Buell said. “The people, hands down, are some of the most supportive, kindest, greatest people I have ever met.” In 2017, she purchased a local gym and now co-owns The Vault. In 2019, she was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year by the Durango Chamber of Commerce. She has two sons with whom she enjoys hiking, snowboarding and playing hockey.
