The editorial team has a special attachment to our new series, The Trailblazers: Rewriting the Narrative, because so many of us feel that media portrayals of women have been too one dimensional. Today, women are doing incredible things in all fields – from science and technology to finance, law, business, athletics and more. With the Trailblazers series, we hope to highlight and celebrate female role models, encourage more equal and just representation in the media, and help foster a more tight-knit community locally helping women find mentors, business partners, friends and more.
Below, you’ll find some incredible trailblazers from in and around Buckhead that we hope you will check out, follow and support.
They both complimented my style, how it matched my personality and how they felt so many people would appreciate me sharing my craft and love for fashion with the world. Though their words were something I had heard before, that time, it just stuck with me. So, I said okay, I’m going to do something but not styling and not an influencer. Read more>>
Teaching myself wasn’t easy. I was overwhelmed but I got support from photographer friends and watched experts on YouTube. It’s amazing what you can teach yourself these days! When I was more confident in my skills, I became obsessed with planning my travels and capturing my experiences. I spent time researching interesting things to see and then went out and shot it.

All day, I think about my clients and what’s best for their brand. There was a time. I thought this was preventing my creative juices from flowing, but I know now that it has provided me with a better understanding of the blogging world. I found myself spending hours looking at bloggers and their various platforms, so in awe of how they were able to create an online brand purely out of themselves. Read more>>
That woman stood there in years of hurt as she yelled out in rage. I didn’t know her story like she didn’t know the story of the little girl staring out of the window across the street. One thing was for sure, we were both on Fifth Avenue in pain… as I sat there in that busy salon, I watched her and wondered if we shared the same dungeon. Read more>>

Because I did not have the basic level knowledge, one of the main services that I offer is education.

They made me happy, and taught me things I didn’t even realize I needed such as determination, integrity, and humility. They gave me confidence and acceptance and courage. I loved being with them, and I loved the way they made me feel. The source of joy that they were to me as a young person impacted me in a way that helped shape me into who I am today. Read more>>
I started singing in church, from sunbeam choir to youth to young adult and I was always a strong soprano. I would actually intentionally sing songs by Adele and Toni Braxton just to master my lower register. I have and have always had an intense love for writing, whether it’s blogging, songwriting, spoken word or poetry. I wrote all of my music acapella when I first started putting my pen to use in high school. Read more>>
I can totally geek out on someone and talk real estate for hours if allowed. However, the thing I love most is being able to help someone. This is most likely the biggest transaction they will ever make, and it can be daunting. I love being the one to do the “heavy lifting” for them to make it as easy as possible. Read more>>
Fast forward to the year after graduation and that’s when I begin my journey in fashion. I was going to community college for computer science, and my mom told me I was lazy and needed a job. I found myself unsure of what I wanted to do but landed a job in retail. That job took me from Seattle to Atlanta just a few years ago. Read more>>
I was born and raised in a small but quaint beach town called Englewood, a hidden gem along the West Coast of Florida. Miles of white sand beaches, a relaxed pace, amazing food, culture and fine arts. Not to mention the sunny warm weather. I basically lived where everyone vacationed. Read more>>
My first job out of college was in sales and from there I started my own tutoring company. I ran that organization for five years. The first two years were great! I really felt as though I was making an impact and perhaps I was even walking in my purpose, but the last 3 years were beyond tough. I had suffered the loss of many customers, my staff was not stable, and the stress of it all was beyond anything I had ever experienced. Read more>>
