Trailblazers: Sandy Springs

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

It’s so important to keep your game strong. It’s also really easy to lose your artistic steam. In this case, take a break. Refuel. Your creativity is your most important asset. My only other advice is to learn how to eat very quickly. A stylist’s busy schedule doesn’t allow for a leisurely lunch and you must master this. Read more>>

I was immersed in rock music, fashion, art and all-around creativity from the moment I was born… having parents who were heavily involved with each…. It was only natural that I’d follow in their footsteps. As I grew up, and developed my own personal style…. black was my favorite color early on.  Read more>>

Since then, my life, and my blog, have evolved into so much more. My husband and I have 3 children and motherhood has shaped me into the woman that I am today. Read more>>
