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

KW Co was birthed out of a huge discomfort for where my life was and a longing to go after what I dreamt it to be. There have been few moments in life where I have had total clarity. One day sitting at my office job, it dawned on me. Read more>>
