Conversion to worker cooperative
Fall 2020 Cooperative Academy Graduate
Tiffany Snow Wesley created Pure Vibes in 2017 in University City, MO to create natural products that were gluten-free to help her live and feel well with polycystic ovarian syndrome. During the 2020 pandemic, she realized that everyone was searching for Pure Vibes to have a sense of community, togetherness and create equity and ownership in spaces where it simply wouldn't exist. Tiffany knew that her good friend Demetrius Neal would rise to the occasion through his ideology to "Live, Motivate and Inspire." Pure Vibes transitioned into a worker-owned cooperative and the company now boasts 4 worker-owners. Tiffany and Demetrius attended Cooperation Buffalo's virtual Fall 2020 Cooperative Academy.
