As a small town girl that came to Chicago at age 19, all I had in my head was hair, hair, and more hair! After graduating and working in the Chicago salon industry for over 12 years, I decided I was ready to take the next step in my career. I’ve traveled the world and I have been influenced by so many cultures, people, and traditions. I love to mix all these different influences together to create a customized style that fits my clients. I needed a place to really expand my vision and that’s how Salon JP came alive.
Salon JP isn’t for everyone, it’s a full service salon that has a relaxed feel with only positive vibes allowed. My number one goal in this world is to inspire people to be their very best and to feel so fabulous they can take on whatever the world gives them! Or as I like to call it “Rise & Slay”. The most common thing I always hear is “I came in here feeling stressed and now I feel so relaxed and confident! I can do anything!”
There is nothing more that I want than to give someone the confidence to take on their day, or the courage to change their life!


I am lucky to come from a family of barbers and hairstylists. I was fascinated by the stories my mom a former hairstylist would tell me of my grandfather a barber, and how much he loved what he did. In learning about their trade I was captivated and thought I would give it a shot and I loved it. I graduated from Pivot point and have been doing hair for 18 years. I also tried out the competition world. Winning 2nd place in Long Hair Design but decided I really liked being behind the chair instead. My number one goal has been to be able to make someone feel great after there haircut, color or any other service that they came to see me for. I am lucky to have been doing this for this long. As Vidal Sassoon said it best “Hairdressers are a wonderful breed. You work one on one with another human being and the object is to make them feel so much better, and to look at themselves with a twinkle in their eye”
