Trailblazers: Far West 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 Far West Dallas that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

The changes in our physical appearance led to people constantly asking what we were doing, asking for meal suggestions and advice. Standing in my kitchen, in the middle of cooking dinner, one evening, I decided to start a Facebook page and I named it, “Primal Mom.” Read more>>

Thanks to my online fitness business, Life Coaching Business, and speaking, I’ve gone from a bankrupt, unemployed, struggling fitness professional to a six-figure earner, with over a million dollars behind me.
