Kirsten has owned her business for 8 years now and has become best known for her Boudoir work.

“I saw a need for a sort of, for lack-of-a-better-word, support group for local women who own their own small businesses in the Edmonton area. Over the past five years, I have met some amazing women who are juggling it all on top of starting, growing, and maintaining their own small businesses and I have always felt a special bond with them. They totally get the struggles and accomplishments we all go through and I have learned so much from these women. All I want to do is meet more of them, share more insight, learn more from each other and beside each other while growing as an individual too. When women genuinely support other women, it is amazing what can happen. To get an opportunity to meet like minded female entrepreneurs will be empowering and I know that we can all learn so much from one another. I am so excited to see the interest we have already been receiving from fellow YEG BOSSBABES and I cannot wait to see the impact this group will have for all women in the same shoes I am in.”
Kayla Kaliszuk, the #momboss of the gang! Happily married and mom to 2 year old Cruz. Kayla is originally from the Okanagan but moved to the area about 10 years ago! Kayla and her mom started a handmade home & skincare business in 2014 and have been hustlin’ in the market scene ever since! @cherrycreeksoapco. Since of course she isn’t already busy enough with that Kayla decided to jump on board this year with her husbands company @flossybumz and dive into the world of retail in the extreme sport industry! When Kayla’s not decorating or cleaning her house you can find her riding dirtbikes with her family and enjoying a glass… aka a bottle or 2 of rose with her fellow boss babes! —When approached by @kirstenkylephotography Kayla jumped at the chance to join the YEG boss babes and can’t wait to connect with everyone to share, learn & grow!
Amy Bender has owned a cleaning company in Leduc for 8 years called Cleaning Bender, where her and her awesome team clean residential & commercial properties. Last year she launched her line of all natural cleaning & household products called |PRETTY| clean @prettydamnclean, which is sold at markets and starting to get into retail. There are big plans for this year, with lots of new product coming out!
In her little spare time, she has lots of hobbies. Renovating her fixer upper, running her giant dogs & snuggling her bunnies, dirt biking, making music, and drinking lots of coffee & wine with the girls💁🏻 She had been wanting to start some kind of girl gang for a while, so when Kirsten @kirstenkylephotography thought of YEGBOSSBABES it was super exciting! ” I couldn’t ask for a better group of women to do this with & we are really looking forward to meeting all YOU bossbabes!”
