She moved to Lubbock, Texas and earned her Cosmetology degree from Jesse Lee’s Hair Design Academy. Some time thereafter, she moved to the New Braunfels area and studied at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.

Jana became an accomplished hair style artist, having practiced for more than 20 years as a stylist and an educator for Paul Mitchell. She enhanced her knowledge of the hair industry by traveling to Europe for some of her continuing education.
