Jenny Perillo – Noktivo
If you’re looking for a green, chemical-free option for your monthly mani/pedi, Noktivo is the place for you. Noktivo 1.0 was a labor of love for Jenny’s whole fam. Her husband and her mother helped her tile, patch drywall, drill sink holes, install faucets and repair concrete to bring her dream to life. To balance raising her six-month-old daughter, Marlena, with her growing business, she lives for to-do lists. Of course, most of the tasks get crossed off at night when the hubby is home and little Marlena is sleeping. She may be a passionate Uptown resident, but she’s also a jet-setter who has visited 26 countries and studied entrepreneurship in Sweden. This year, Noktivo will be opening a new location in Chicago complete with sampling services, a spa and a knowledgeable staff.
