Trailblazers: Midtown

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 Midtown that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

After a solid year of the less than satisfying Corporate America life, I started to crave something more. Something that fueled my fire.

I started making little things around the house I needed or just wanted to see in the space. Planters, a side table for all my plants to fit by the window, lamps, honestly anything I could make out of what I had.
Curating your personal space is something I think is very important to your peace of mind and comfort. Read more>>
