Trailblazers: Kendall

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

Being a leader, a CEO, and a personal brand is never an easy road. Some are not cut out for it. You have to be honest, strong, work hard, never give up, and take the good with the bad. As I said, I have seen many fizzle out and give up. However, there are those kinds of women who have the back-bone and tenacity to go after their goals, crush them, and lead other women onto their personal victories in life and business. And thats definitely me. Read more>>
