Trailblazers: Del Mar, Encinitas & Carlsbad

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 Del Mar, Encinitas & Carlsbad that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Such an imperative and necessary part of the modern-day small business, but man oh man, is it time-consuming and tricky. With all of that said, I have truly enjoyed every minute of this adventure and I look forward to learning and growing even more. Read more>>

Make-Up Artistry has always been an interest of mine ever since I was “allowed” to start wearing it. Actually, I was never really allowed. I remember going to the store with my mom and telling her I was going to go look at the CD’s section. Read more>>

I then created my website, all my social media accounts and on the first day, we launched my sales were beyond what I could have ever imagined. Read more>>

I had no drivers license, no social security number, no bank account, and was greeted by a distant family friend. Within three days of my arrival, school started. That was my “hit the ground running” start to life in the US. Read more>>
