Kelsey Yule - President and Founder
Understanding the need for highly qualified stylists and beauty technicians is nothing new to Kelsey Yule. As the founder of Raw Concepts Studio, and highly recognized competitor in several hair industry competitions, she sees the lack of skills, professionalism and business sense that is missing in this opportunistic industry. We are targeting students with the same big dreams she has achieved from small town roots. Kelsey has benefited from recognitions such as the 2008 Alberta Stylist of the Year, 2008 Redken Cover Competition Alberta Finalist, 2007 Alberta/BC Salon Team Finalist for Canada, 2011 Y.W.C.A Young Woman of Distinction and one of the top ranked young stylists in Canada.
Janet Yule - Founder
Success is measured in a multitude of ways for co-founder Janet Yule. Passionate about helping others fulfill their dreams and getting recognition for their achievements is one of the reasons she is still very active behind the scenes with Purely Inspired. Having worked along with Kelsey for a number of years developing her competition portfolio, Janet's background of Public Relations, Student Services and Advertising in the post-secondary market were a natural fit for this teams venture. A huge supporter of rural roots being a solid foundation for strong work ethic, the diversity of the beauty industry is a welcome addition to her lifestyle.
Jessica Hicken - Lethbridge Manager
