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 didn’t grow up an athletic person, nor would I have ever used that word to describe myself. As an adult, I started to find self-expression in movement and started running in 2008 and started teaching yoga in 2010. What I enjoyed most about these two activities was that they were something that I found accessible. Read more>>
The dream of becoming an interior designer flourished in college, and no doubts followed the decision of choosing an interior design as my career path. Design is powerful. Good (and bad!) design can change you physically and psychologically. Read more>>
