Kelsey O’Neil/ Vain Salon
Kelsey O’Neil was raised in Marquette, MI and the Detroit, MI areas. Her parents separated when Kelsey was very young. Her grandmother, who owned a number of small businesses, was a huge influence in her life; especially inspiring Kelsey’s development as a business woman and entrepreneur.
Mark LaTour contacted the UMD Center for Economic Development (UMD CED) to receive Small Business Development Center (SBDC) consulting assistance a number of years ago. At that time he and a partner wanted to discuss starting a HVAC/sheet metal fabrication business. They were young ambitious men ready to start their entrepreneurial journey.
