Trailblazers: Buckhead

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.

Working with homeless animals is flat out just not easy. I am incredibly tender-hearted when it comes to the animals, and they so often pull at my heartstrings.

I am an entrepreneur. My journey of being self-employed started in early 2016 when I decided to quit my “regular” job, simply because I felt like I had no control over my daily life anymore. I went from being a part-time Uber driver to full time after quitting my day job. This had been one of the best decisions I had made for myself and for my life. Read more>>
