Trailblazers: Gilbert

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

Mabre Lencho-Armstrong

I’ve always been surrounded by makers. Both my grandfather and father worked in creative fields so naturally, I was exposed to art at an early age. To this day, I am amazed with how they both have been able to capture the essence of the subject matter that inspires them, like animals and the natural world. Read more>>

I have always had a love for photography and videography even though I never thought that it would be my career choice. Growing up, I never had the money to buy a camera so it was always just a for fun “hobby” that I enjoyed on my iPhone. When I got married in 2015, we had some extra cash from our wedding.

It is amazing how God placed so many individuals in my life who have either started their own business or are in the process. The support, love, and encouragement were endless (and it still is coming). Read more>>

I started my business in 2015, after deciding it was time to truly start following my dreams and expressing my inner creative self! During the day, I am a Special Education teacher and even though I absolutely love helping kids, I felt like a little piece was missing from my life. Read more>>

I began compiling a portfolio by doing photo sessions with friends. I started my business and have been taking photos ever since. People ask about my business name. I have been nicknamed Comet for as long as I can remember, so I felt the name was fitting. I am deeply indebted to my clients. Read more>>

Realizing I could actually be good at something, I branched off to start a small business designing floral arrangements. I craved the creative freedom and the ability to make people happy. Read more>>

It started purely for fun to document my newfound love for spending time in the kitchen. No one in my immediate family or friends enjoyed cooking or baking, so I started blogging to share my adventures with other people who would “get it” online. Read more>>
