Trailblazers: Scottsdale

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

Makeup helped me do that and that is how allieballiemakeup started. Every day, I would practice and practice, I had no idea it would grow so much and become so much fun. It is such a big part of my life, I couldn’t imagine my life without doing it. Read more>>

Telling the story of Green View tends to wind up being a bit personal. Green View is my passion project – as an artist myself I found working in the field of accounting to be a bit distancing from the people and values I so enjoyed – the small makers, designers, musicians, artists. Read more>>

My fashion background, combined with my marketing & styling background was a natural lead in being asked to influence for a handful of women’s fashion lines. I’ve recently expanded my fashion influencer business to include beauty and skincare. Read more>>

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved to perform. I’m that person with video recordings of singing at age 3. I loved to sing, dance, play instruments — you name it — I was always putting on skits for my family and performing with my friends, getting up in front of whomever I was around to sing and dance and perform for them.

What are the chances that one girl’s picture would end up in both Afghanistan and Iraq, on two separate occasions three years apart? The answer is, it actually happened… to me. I’m an Arizona native, and for the past 15 years, I’ve worked in our community in TV, film, and print. Read more>>
