WOMEN IN BUSINESS JEANNE LENZ American Martial Arts (209) 952-4000

Jeanne Lenz is a dynamo. As an Owner/ Trainer at American Martial Arts Academy she trains clients at all levels of fitness. Be it self-defense like Kickboxing or Krav Maga (Israeli natural defense form), or the Ultimate Body-shaping Challenge, she inspires, commands, exhorts and shows the way. She’ll also lurk quietly in class and give students personal attention, like pointers on proper technique and form, as well as encouragement. She consistently leads people to get the most out of their workout experience with both humor and a giving spirit. Starting as a Mom on the sidelines, Jeanne quickly decided to get directly involved in selfdefense and fitness. Attention to detail, repeated demonstration and a watchful eye are inherent in her methods; she has high standards and is personally certified to teach in each of the disciplines offered at AMAA. Jeanne is a motive force that will help you change your life for the better.

JILLIAN BRIZENDINE Ciao Bella Salon 1 West Pine Street, Lodi (209) 210-7687

Jillian Brizendine left her little hometown of Lodi and moved to Santa Monica, California to attend The Vidal Sassoon Academy. Shortly after finishing her schooling she moved to San Diego to assist and continue her education at Jet Rhys. This salon is owned by two former Vidal Sassoon educators and often featured in Allure and ELLE magazines. There, she trained under Rhys and specialized in haircutting. “He is such an amazing teacher and stylist. Rhys made me so passionate and they helped me develop the skills." After moving a bit closer to home, Jillian became the haircutting instructor for the James Mark Salon in Elk Grove. She also began taking many coloring classes including the Master Colorist Program at The Wella Studio in San Francisco. She eagerly continues taking classes, stating, “In this profession you can never learn enough. This business is so competitive, stylists need to work twice as hard to keep up on the latest styles and techniques.” You can now find Jillian at Ciao Bella Salon in historic downtown Lodi. “I love having the freedom to create change, no matter how big or how small.”
