Today we’d like to introduce you to Elizabeth and Nico Barcellos of Mosquito Joe of Fort Lauderdale. Elizabeth has been an entrepreneur for almost two decades and Nico is no stranger to hard work, even at the age of nineteen. After years of living in New York and Pennsylvania, Elizabeth got tired of shoveling snow, so she and Nico (then 3 and a half) headed south to Florida for warmer temperatures and sunny skies. They soon found out that also meant a lot of mosquitoes.
Meet Elizabeth Barcellos, Mosquito Joe of Fort Lauderdale
Elizabeth knew she wanted to own her own business and began her entrepreneurial career by opening her own nail and tanning salon. She successfully ran that for seven years before selling it and moving down to Florida. She then embarked on a career in real estate before devoting her time to Mosquito Joe. When she started thinking about opening a new business, it is no surprise she gravitated towards Mosquito Joe. That’s because in her spare time you can find her outside gardening in her yard with her four dogs. Knowing how much she loves her outdoor time makes it that much more special to know that through Mosquito Joe she is able to offer mosquito-free living to residents in her South Florida community.
Meet Nico Barcellos, Mosquito Joe of Fort Lauderdale
Nico’s career began as a child model at the age of 3 and a half. This groomed him (no pun intended) for entrepreneurship. He later traded time in front of the camera for time behind the wheel of the Mosquito Joe van, providing mosquito control services alongside his mother. He’s the one you’ll see pulling up to rid your yard of pesky mosquitoes. Outside of Mosquito Joe he is majoring in Psychology at Broward University and loves photography and music.
Mosquito Joe of Fort Lauderdale launched in the summer of 2014 and the family business Elizabeth and Nico have started together provides a much needed service for southern Florida. Elizabeth says the year round warm temperatures people love create the perfect habitat for mosquitoes, explaining the high populations there. They’re so excited to make Fort Lauderdale mosquito free, and we couldn’t be more excited to have them in the Mosquito Joe family.
