A wife, mother, hair stylist, and business owner, Lisa Marquette believes that with hard work and consistency anything is possible. A longtime stylist and creative “people person,” Lisa wanted to help the restoration process of the city and its architecture following Hurricane Katrina and transformed a charming Canal Street house into the relaxed, welcoming Salon M. To nurture new talent, Lisa created an apprenticeship program that allows new graduates to reach their potential, find purpose, and become financially independent. 

In the community, Lisa volunteers for her church and children’s school while giving back to the community through Mary’s Song, a faith-based, women’s substance abuse rehabilitation program in Metairie. Along with offering financial support, Lisa has mentored, trained, and hired Mary’s Song graduates.
