The Team

Barb - HR Consultant

Barbara L. Pemble, MS, SHRM-CP

Founder, Chief Executive Officer

After obtaining her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in management with a focus on human resources and administration, Barb began her career in Michigan before making the big move to Colorado. She then spent over a decade in higher education, working in both recruitment and professional development for a nationally-ranked university. In 2016, Barb seized upon an opportunity to embark on a new journey when she entered the world of human resources consulting and shortly thereafter, continued her family’s legacy of entrepreneurship, when she founded REO Consulting, LLC.

The youngest of eight children, Barb was born and raised in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and  proudly calls herself a Yooper. A really good day for Barb consists of skiing or cycling, followed by a nice glass of vino, a Broncos win, and time spent with family and friends.
