Trailblazers: Quincy

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

Everything kinda started one day when I was working on my Sculpture thesis, at the time I was working towards my dual BFA degree in Sculpture and Digital Media. I was in the studio and had just finished casting faces of friends and family in plaster. Read more>>

My fascination with cannabis started at the age of 11 when my grandfathers both got cancer in the same year and I heard my father educate them on the medicinal benefits of the plant to help with chemo symptoms. By age 13, I had written my first 5 page paper on the hemp plant. Read more>>

Deep down I knew I viewed the world very differently from my peers. An art teacher from my elementary school years even told my parents the exact same thing. In my youth I didn’t quite understand what that really meant. Read more>>

I’ve always felt called to share my journey. Learning about health and fitness has been an obsession. My father passed away from a heart attack at 41, so I’ve always been interested in keeping fit. It took awhile for me to figure out what ACTUALLY works. Read more>>

My family is always creating, building, and thinking outside the box. I’ve been surrounded by creative people for as long as I can remember. When my sisters and I were little, my mom would often give us paper and crayons instead of sitting us in front of the tv, and more often than not she would sit and draw with us. Read more>>

I have owned and operated Acquire Good in Hingham for a little over a year. I was drawn to the idea of being part of a community where I could combine my sales and service skills (pretty much wrap them together with a bow- literally). Read more>>
