Jolene Zinke spent her former career as an event planner for a large catering company in Denver. Her weekends were taken up with lavish weddings, bah mitzvahs, and corporate parties all over town. With a background in this field, Jolene has an eye for making things look beautiful, and top notch organizational skills.

After 11 years, she was ready for something new and decided to partner with her oldest daughter to begin a new journey in owning an Aveda salon. A lover of Aveda products, Jolene was excited to dive deeper into the company and create a salon. Organization and beautification were two skill sets that helped get Zinke Hair Studio on its feet, and continue to keep it running as a top 200 business according to Salon Today.

There has never been a dull moment in this journey for Jolene. She runs all business operations and loves attending yearly conferences and Aveda events where learning never ends. When she’s not seen in the salon or cranking away in her office, Jolene loves to spend time with her granddaughters, travel, and work in her garden.
