We would like to thank all of our wonderful staff members for helping make PURE so extraordinary and to run so smoothly. Staff members can only be a full-time staff member after someone in their immediate family or themselves has won a title and does not plan to compete for at least one year from the time they resign as a staff member.  Some staff members are immediate family, meaning they can not compete for one of our titles.
