Trailblazers in Centennial

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.

When I was 12, I was diagnosed with scoliosis. I had a 36-degree curvature in my lumbar spine and I had to wear a brace for five years.
