Trailblazers: Chandler

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

Kassidy Crawford

I’ve always been really interested in businesses and how they work. When I was really young, I started ambitiously applying for jobs I was underqualified for, and landing them. I always knew that I could just find the resources to teach myself whatever I didn’t know. Read more>>

Sarah Cafiero

After years of living with Juvenile Rheumatoid arthritis and being treated within the traditional medical model, I began to receive massage on a regular basis. It changed the way I thought about pain relief and effective holistic health solutions so much so that I eventually went to massage school. Read more>>

Jill Mancuso

Modern Roots Kids Co. was born in September of 2015. It wasn’t always known as Modern Roots Kids Co, though. I originally started my business under the name Ten + Two Designs. Ten stood for the month my son was born (October) and two stood for the month my daughter was born (February). Read more>>

Katie Harrison

In 2009, I spent a moment (2 months) of my life in Kenya. I fell in love with the country, the language, the people and most of all the children. All their little faces looking to be recognized, their voices wanting to be heard, their hands wanting to be held, their souls wanting to be loved. Read more>>

Kristi Eide

Building muscle, feeling strong, watching the way it changed my body, and the way it allowed me to de-stress after a long day made it totally contagious. To further my knowledge, I hired a personal trainer to teach me the ropes, ended up getting NASM certified a couple years later, and have kept up with that certification. Read more>>

Brandi Dixon

I have been in the fitness industry in some form since my daughter was born 12 years ago. I always knew that I wanted to create an environment for her to love her body and view it as strong and powerful. I didn’t know that as I worked to do that, I would find my passion for helping other women do the same thing. Read more>>

Zaira Angelo

I love to cook and entertain. Making beautiful meals and bringing friends and family together is the reason that I spend hours preparing a meal. Maybe it’s my heritage; I’ve heard that Mexican women show their love and affection by feeding the people they love. Read more>>

Natalie Wallen

Doing eyelash extensions is my calling and I guarantee quality, consistency and passion with each and every appointment and I think that shows in my work and is why I have been able to build several successful lash businesses. Read more>>

Alyssa Wells

I go through all these intense milestone moments with them. Everything from their long-awaited engagements and a first baby, to crying alongside a mourning mother or having to shave all a clients hair off while they’re going through chemo. Read more>>

gul siddiqi

It activated a desire and passion in me to help with the most vulnerable and be a voice for their needs. I was blessed when a job in the field of humanitarian work with an International Global Organization opened up! I have been with them since for the past 5 years. Read more>>
