When Randi Jensen, a self-proclaimed “high-tech
divorcee” found herself looking for work, she knew two
things: she wanted to help people, and she didn’t mind
getting her hands dirty. She soon discovered that not only was
she handy with plumbing, carpentry, electrical work, and painting,
but her clients seemed to feel more comfortable with a female
fix-it person around the house. The result is Jill of All Trades
(…), a household repair and renovation service that caters
to women and the elderly.

Do it yourself - home basic repairs
Randi Jensen - Jill of all Trades, General Repair and Light Construction
A home repair and construction pro will show you the basic tools,
supplies and techniques to use within your own home so you can save
time and money.
The idea was conceived in March 2002, and started to evolved in
June 2002 when creating a covered gazebo in the front yard of the
landlord’s. The idea was further reinforced by a TV program
on women’s careers where it was discovered a similar concept
had been started in Toronto, Ontario Canada and become a great success.
Since then, the business has grown from an idea to a business outline
on paper that has been accepted by the Canadian Federal Government
Self-Employment Employment Program and has since graduated from this program in November 2003.
The Business was founded on the 26th of November in the year 2002
with the registration of the Name “Jill of All Trades”.
Start-up followed shortly after with the first piece of work on
the 30th of November 2002 from a manager of a Cotton Ginny store
This is a Service oriented business focusing on solving unique problems
in the home, concentrating in the area of repair and light construction.
The aim of the business is to focus on the needs of women who
own businesses as well as women and
elderly clients who find it more comfortable having a female
contractor in their home. While part of the focus of Jill of All
Trades is on Women helping Women, there is another very important
part which is helping community through assisting the elderly by
aiding them with repairs which would otherwise not get done because
of the jobs are cost prohibitive or because the task is too small
to hire help.
The service has evolved through many years of assisting others with
small repairs and designs. It is the appreciation shown by others
from the resulting products that has thrust this business into a
reality. It is the purpose of Jill of All Trades to act as the expert/advocate
for the client and to research and design a solution to their particular
problem. The primary goal of Jill of All Trades is to help others
through the skills achieved over a lifetime through custom analysis,
planning, organizing and building.
Jill of all Trades will grow through the gratification of the customers
To date Jill of all trades has done bathroom & kitchen renovations, repaired broken furniture, built & repaired decks, designed & built shelves, tiled floors & walls, installed electrical & plumbing fixtures, and much more.
Let Jill of All of Trade bring your project and
repair dreams to fruition!
