Justyna was born in the small town of Przemysl in Southeast part of Poland. She inherited her love for music from her parents. Her father was an amateur singer and a self taught guitar player. Her mother was a singer who came to the United States in the mid 80's and spent a few years singing in the Chicagoland area. Wanting to follow her mother's footsteps, Justyna set her goal of becoming a singer at the age of 7. She came to the United States in 2006, settled in Chicago and began her education in jazz a few years later.

In 2016 Justyna earned her bachelors degree of Science in Accounting and Jazz Studies at Elmhurst College in Elmhurst, IL. Over the years, she's worked with great jazz musicians such as Mark Colby, Bob Rummage, Frank Caruso, Gayle Bisesi, and Tommy Muellner. For the past few months, Justyna has been collaborating with the great Chicago bass player John Bany, also known as "Pops" and "Grandpa Bass".
