Meet Jo

JoAnn Epps has been helping customers walk comfortably and fashionably for more than a decade. She got her start in 1998 at The Walking Company. She later studied medical marketing and transitioned into the foot health care field. She graduated from Temple U. in 2002 with a degree in Pedorthic Medicine. She has worked as a manager in the Birkenstock Store in Bethesda and in Comfort One in Rockville. Today, Jo is the owner of her own shoe store in Gaithersburg, Maryland. She welcomes her past clients and looks forward to seeing new faces from the Kentlands and Lakelands communities, the greater Gaithersburg area, and beyond.


“This place is worth the drive for the customer service alone. Jo is amazing. She takes her time, answers all of your questions and is truly interested in helping you find the best shoe for your situation. She has spent over an hour with my mother on more than one occasion. She is extremely knowledgable, has a great selection and will order items for you if she doesn’t have them. Much better than going to any of the other local “comfort” shoe shops.
