Trailblazers: Central Dallas

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

Before starting Sunny Thymes, I had wanted to start a food blog for a few years to share my recipes I got asked about all the time. I’ve always loved cooking and creating recipes; I just couldn’t quite figure out what I wanted my niche to be. I didn’t JUST want to share my recipes. Read more>>
