Kelly Jubenvill

When she’s not providing creative project and marketing consulting, Kelly Jubenvill invests her time back into teams and communities in Calgary. One of her most rewarding teams is the Maker Market of the Calgary Stampede, for which she is the vice chair. Now in its fourth year, the market is bringing the amazing talents of Alberta Makers to the attention of local, national and international visitors.

Jubenvill is the Chair of “Your Brain on Art,” an annual Fundraiser for the Branch Out Neurological Foundation. She also volunteers with Homestart of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary, where she gets to be a “maker” with crayons, blocks and play dough, as well as offer parent-to-parent support. She’s also proud to be a director of Swim Alberta and Direct MS.
