I was born Christine Rachele Johnston in Darby, PA in 1969 and moved to Texas during high school.  I graduated from Plano Senior high and started my own business, a Beauty Salon shortly thereafter.  An accident in 2000 set me back, but did not stop my motivation. I turned in my scissors for a magnifying glass and a new start in a new business.  I have incorporated my years at customer service, employee management, problem solving skills, compassion and belief of "Do what is right." to JPA.  The result has been a new class of skip / investigations in an industry starved for professionalism and integrity.  My life has been blessed with a marriage to a Retired Sergeant USAF and we share five children between us ranging in age from 24 to 18 years (2 boys, 3 girls).

Jeanne Johnston - Vice President

I am blessed to be born, raised and working in the great state of Texas.  I hold a BA in Economics and Finance and a Masters in Public Administration from UTD.   Ten years as a stay at home Mom, I hold as one of my greatest blessings.  Both of my girls are grown now, the oldest a successful business woman and the youngest an enthusiastic recent college graduate. Entering into the industry in 1999, teaming up with Christine in 2000 (friends since 1987) and as JPA since 2006.  One of our major goals in forming JPA was to create a pleasant, positive and productive place for people to work.  Please contact us for more information and job opportunities at
