Trailblazers in Colorado Springs

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

I’ve always been creative and “techy”. Even as a kid I would tinker and figure out new programs on the computer. And I would overly design all of my school projects with fun fonts and colors. I’m sure it drove a lot of my teachers crazy. Read more>>

Yoga is growth. Yoga is love. Love for ourselves, love for one another. Yoga isn’t about making every situation light, bright, or carefree— but rather, bringing the light of our perception, and the fortitude of our spirit. Read more>>
