Gloria P. VanWoerkom, president of Jean Paree Wigs, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in business ownership.
While chaperoning a trip to Europe with her daughter, Ms. VanWoerkom considered purchasing a wig for her travels. Little did she know, that walking into Jean’s Wig Shop would present her with a life-altering career opportunity. After being offered a part-time position at the shop, Ms. VanWoerkom began working two days a week, eventually becoming a full-time employee and ultimately the owner of Jean Paree Wigs. Building additional expertise through coursework at Hollywood Beauty College, she quickly made a name for herself within the beauty industry. Though she did not expect to end up where she is, she attributes her success to Jeanie Wellington, her mentor and the original owner of the business.
Ms. VanWoerkom is gratified to help every one of her clients, especially those who have lost hair due to chemotherapy, leave her store feeling confident and beautiful. A philanthropist by nature, she is proud to regularly contribute to the American Cancer Society. Ms. VanWoerkom is active in her local Chamber of Commerce, and Jean Paree Wigs was recognized as the Best Wig Shop in the state of Utah, beating out nearly 100 other retailers. Looking toward the future, she aims to continue providing vital services to her community while preparing to transfer all business operations to her daughter.
