The powerful ladies leading the way in Colorado are not only impressive and inspiring but also dedicated and devoted to pushing themselves and their communities to be the best
versions of themselves. I am beyond impressed with all the women in this issue and cannot wait to share their unique stories with you.

From Angelique Salazar, who is an entrepreneur with multiple businesses in the Denver area (spoiler alert: she’s also featured in our cover story!); to Shannon Fitzgerald, who is working to increase opportunities for women in business; to Tasha Jones, whose expertise in diversity marketing is shining a light on underserved communities; and Elle Bruno, whose passion is funding women-led start-ups and minorities with venture capital, Colorado’s women are indeed Wonder Women!

Fall fashions also play a role in this issue. We teamed up with Neiman Marcus to shoot our Rev the Runway cover models on location at Mercedes Benz of Denver for a glamorous look at runway couture and accessories for this season and beyond. Speaking of couture, a Colorado designer is turning heads with her Italian-made handbag label, Vogelle. Talk about stylish!

Additionally, make sure you read about The New Local in Boulder, which fosters economic empowerment for female artists. It’s been so successful that its owners opened The New Local Annex, where guests can take workshops, classes and see current exhibits.

We also spoke with Sansara Resort and Retreat in Cambutal, Panama. The setting is jaw-droppingly gorgeous, with pristine black sand beaches and lush jungles, and the programs offered are highly curated. I can’t wait to book one of the brain health, surf camp, off-road or meditation retreats!

Fall is also the perfect time to book a girls’ trip, and The Western Hotel in Ouray is just the ticket! Oh, and please head over to coloradoexpression.com to read about more noteworthy women and women-owned businesses. For example, Adventures in Good Company is a travel company that takes women on epic journeys all across the globe.

I hope you enjoy reading about all of these incredible women and recognize the women in your life who are making a difference.

Cheers to the ladies!
