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

I came up with a name for my shop, created an Instagram account, and just started posting items I had already collected that never found a home in our space, and through the use of hashtags people started following me in anticipation of my growing inventory of found treasures. I’ve been slowly building my audience of shoppers since then, and feel like I’ve developed a really specific aesthetic that resonates with all the people who have supported me. Read more>>

Real estate was a natural transition with my sales background, my gift of gab, and my love for modern architecture. I decided to start that career in Dallas for many of the reasons that so many others are choosing to make Dallas home; booming economy, welcoming community, culture, and probably one of the most important factors… the airport! Read more>>

Yoga has brought me closer to my faith and my family as it’s really about finding gratitude in everything. Even the messy parts. I look back and embrace it all, trusting that everything happens for a reason.
