Mid-Wilshire Trailblazers

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 Mid-Wilshire that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Tamarah Angelique Logan

I started out wanting to be a model and actress. By the time I was 19, I was on my own going to college working three jobs taking acting classes and booking modeling/acting jobs when I could.I shot my last commercial at 26. I was frustrated with where my modeling and acting career was going so I decided to pursue a career in fine dining. Read more>>

I had no clue that it would take off as it did and create deeper conversations with friends. It’s opened many doors to new relationships. I’m grateful and humbled by the feedback I get about how it’s inspired and helped others. I’m so grateful to everyone who has listened or shared it with a friend. Read more>>

I specialize in lifestyle portraiture. I’m most proud of my researching skills to find new events in Los Angeles and new places to shoot at. Facebook has been pretty good at targeting their ads, so I’m usually the first of my friends to know about the newest pop-up museum or festival coming to LA. Read more>>

I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping others who struggle with low self-esteem, procrastination, face challenges in their love life and who would like to take their confidence and power back, get out of the autopilot, habitual, unconscious living, reprogram their mindset into growth, success, leadership and high vibrating love! Read more>>

All new agents and business owners, in general, want to become successful. But when you are someone that has never been in business or has never seen it done, it’s a total mental shift that must take place because running your own business is 24/7, in addition to an 8-5, parental, and spouse roles. Read more>>

I started to work in the dance music world because EDM was really where the massive festivals were being produced. I was lucky to be connected and to have worked under Live Nation, and Goldenvoice, to name a few. The biggest festival that I was able to work was EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival – Las Vegas), and Coachella. Read more>>

Sarah Siebold

I wouldn’t have known that lactation education and consulting would be my life’s work until having a child of my own. It’s ok to not know what a journey is going to look like, and winding paths are part of all of it. When things go smoothly, there’s such little opportunity to learn, grow, adjust, adapt. Read more>>

I feel like I’m incredibly lucky to say that my journey to motherhood inspired my passion and ability to do what I do today and that’s support people during the most important transition of their lives – becoming a parent! After a 10+ career in marketing, I decided to go back to school to earn my MBA at USC and it was upon earning that degree that I learned I was (oops!) pregnant! Read more>>

Fashion has been a passion of mine ever since I could remember – it was my first love. As a girl, I remember sitting in the kitchen in fancy ball gown dresses, drawing my own designs, and dreaming of one day becoming a fashion designer – I actually named my make-believe boutique ‘Fashion Passion’ (ha!). Read more>>

The one place my family loves to travel to is Disney, so I knew a lot about it. I started a blog as a creative outlet. I included hotel information, packing guides, tips, and tricks – and LOVED it. I moved to Los Angeles after graduating from college and realized that I could expand my blog to include helpful guides and share my travel stories, and Home and A Broad was born. Read more>>

I slung coffee at various cafes for almost six years, working my way up to the general manager level. When I moved to LA three years ago, I found work as a barista at K-town coffee shop, just a block from Bia’s current location. Read more>>

I faced the difficult decision of choosing between sports (another love) and continuing music. After long discussions with my guidance counselor, I figured out a way to balance both, running into the auditorium panting from Lacrosse practice just in time to jump on stage and rehearse my lines for the annual Musical Theater production. Read more>>
