Trailblazers: Maricopa

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

I have always had a passion for plants and the desert. I noticed that there were so many powerful native desert plants that were hardly being used in the herbal and beauty world. Read more>>

I started my journey into the fashion world in 2013 as a freelance model. I was doing 2-5 shoots a month from 2013-2015 while supporting myself, working full time and paying out of pocket for hair and makeup, living expenses and anything needed for the shoots… Read more>>

This has been a bumpy, winding road with many hills and valleys. I thought this was going to be a hobby and that was all. Maybe, I would make some extra money while being more fulfilled creatively, but I never envisioned it to be what it is today. Read more>>
