JEN ADAMS
Cosmetologist/Nonprofit Developer

Jen Adams is a 30-year veteran in the hair industry, and a 20-year veteran in the non-profit and community development space. After developing her own award-winning Donovan's Hair Studio in San Jose, CA, Jen moved back east, furthering her cosmetology career by becoming an educator for both cosmetology students and product companies. After returning behind the chair as a stylist in 2004, Jen felt she had a bigger purpose.

 

On January 12th, 2010, she discovered the beginning of this purpose after an earthquake brought her to Haiti. As a result, Jen formed a 501.(c)(3) to connect communities with resources to improve their current environments. This led to additional disaster relief work with many communities, both locally and globally. As a result, Jen brings a unique and valuable blend of experience to Ms. Julie's School of Beauty.
