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

I got to where I am today as an artist mostly through modeling. I started off when I was in high school, my best friend who knew I wanted to be a model told me about a casting call for a local modeling agency and I went not knowing anything about the industry or modeling in general and I actually got in.

My story started after I had my son, I was a single mother, I was still in college and determined to make my grades, raise my son and put food on the table without going insane!

It put my body back in shape but something was missing. Read more>>

We even expanded our items from our hair bows to digital invitations! Read more>>
