Growing up, as a young lady, helping others was a very big factor in my life. I realized that there are many who need a positive avenue, career goal, or business to believe in. For myself, being a successful female entrepreneur was always important to me.
I became much more involved in promoting their careers as I saw how barbering improved the life of my eldest son who was having trouble deciding on a vocation after high school. Both my sons found their passions and became well known barber stylists in South Florida. They now have a loyal clientele, make haircuts fun for children and families and give exceptional service.
Thus, began JT’s Cuts Academy, The Barber Academy run by a passionate family who work hard every day to bring quality and opportunity to the community. My intention is ensuring the best academics and practical lessons of the Barber Program while guiding each student’s personal improvement. I believe this dedication is what allows JT’s Cuts Academy to stand out as one of the best barbering schools in South Florida.
JT’s Cuts Academy holds to family values. Very frequently, we go to community events and offer free haircuts to the underprivileged. We feed the homeless with our students, take field trips to hair conventions, and do many more inspiring activities together.
As we keep up with regulations by the Department of Education, we are working on our goals to increase our program options since the Barber Program is such a success. Other than the academy location, we have two other barbershops in South Florida and are continuing to grow our family business.

From the age of 5 I’ve been in the barber world starting with the beauty school my grandmother attended. As the fascination grew I opened my first location at the age of 19. As one of the youngest barber shop owners around it was a tough task keeping things together. But with God by my side I continued to learn and grow with the new journey. As I stuck with the plan the barber shop started to grow. From new barbers to more happy customers. At the age of 24 I started my second location witch in time turned into the same progress as the first location. After seeing the growth with the first location the second wasn’t tough to get it to a high level.
After years of running the two locations I realized that the most common problem in the barber shop industry is finding reliable barbers. That’s when the great ideal of opening a school came to mind. It was a few years of planing with my partner Miss Ulloa. After doing the right studies we decided to go thru with the actions of opening. It has been a long hard journey getting to know everything about running a school, but we have and continue to keep pushing thru it. It’s a amazing feeling helping others start and finish new careers. We really have found our calling.

Hello, my name is Michelle. I began my career as a cosmetologist in the Bay Area of California. I have been in the cosmetology and barbering industry now for about 10 years. I love what I do. I was grateful to have the opportunity to become a cosmetology instructor at the same school where I was taught. I was eventually approached to teach the barbering program that had just been opened by Gloria and JT.
I have a passion for all parts of the industry but, I would have to say that I have a true passion for mentoring and watching my students advance as they move through the program, the industry, and in life. Having that opportunity is what I love most about working at JT’s. I look forward to working with all of my students in the future.
