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.

From there, I proved them wrong, I attended Boca Beauty Academy in Boca Raton, FL and started on the adventure that would soon slowly take over my life and became my passion. Read more>>

I have always loved writing and fashion. Working at a magazine has always been a job that encompassed everything I was passionate about – words, photography, style, and creativity. As I began to investigate what working for a magazine company actually entailed, I wondered if it would be the right fit for me. I began to do my research about firms, writing, style, and I ended up on Pinterest going through hundreds of pins talking about bloggers and blogging and the exciting (yet hard) work that they got to be a part of.  Read more>>
