Meet the Founders

Sara Kilgore, Founder & Creative Director, is the visionary behind what you experience here at Spakkel. She has huge dreams for what this community will become and how it will benefit not only each individual member, but the home improvement industry as a whole. Get behind this girl, she's going places. A lot of times that place is Chick-fil-A.

Sara started a career in the home improvement industry several years ago as the Director of Operations for EBA PRIME, a peer counsel of the industry's leading remodeling companies. She found herself surrounded by, sharing meals with, and learning from the very best of the best. But what she noticed were the people not sitting in the room, not benefiting from these rich insights. She decided to eliminate barriers such as travel expenses and time away from families by bringing all of these great minds straight to your mobile device. You can thank her at the next industry event by buying her a glass of vino. Cheers!
Joy Kilgore, CEO and Matriarch of Spakkel, is the beauty AND the brains behind our business. Her drive and fortitude surprise you when at first you see only her bright, inviting smile. She's as determined as she is kind. She is the only person we know who will walk up to any and every stranger (or celebrity) and introduce herself. "Hi, I'm Joy. Joy Kilgore." 

Joy has worked in the home remodeling industry for over 15 years where she has accumulated many friends across the country. She started EBA PRIME, the industry's premier counsel of the most successful home remodelers. Because she chooses to surround herself with only the best of the best, she is looked to as a thought leader, communicator and connector. When she's not working, you'll most likely find her chasing around her grandson.
