Meet the Girlboss Magazine Team
The “Girlboss Family” we always refer to isn’t just an expression. We wouldn’t be where we are without our family of supporters, content contributors, and readers! At the core of our family is the writers and artists who help bring the publication to life. Meet the GB 2.0 Team.
Editor in Chief
For a print designer gone digital with an ever-changing client list, a publication like Girlboss had always been a dream. In May 2019 Carly decided to found the Girlboss project and pursue her vision of a well-designed, branded publication dedicated specifically to empowering and supporting women. Life experience and current events combine to create the need for a publication of this nature to come onto the scene. Carly saw an interest in causes and philanthropy via social media content and sharing, but often users who are inspired to help a cause don’t know how. Girlboss is here to change that. Carly puts over 100 hours into every edition of the magazine as a voluntary effort, receiving no compensation.

The Modern Mom
Born and bred right here in Colorado, Emily was lucky enough to find her perfect partner and became a stepmom in 2017. She has lived through all the ups and downs of blended families, and learned along the way that finding a community that understood this part of her life was nearly impossible.
She is forever thankful for the support of her people, but knows how much easier her path would have been with peers and mentors to experience the journey alongside. Today, Emily is passionate about joining hands with stepmoms who face big mountains every day. Through Wicked Cool Stepmoms, Emily provides the community that she missed so much during her early journey. In addition to her love for helping blended families shine, Emily runs a people operations consulting company called Empossible Denver. For fun, she loves exploring new places, binge-watching crime shows, hanging out with her husband and stepson, and, of course, spoiling her three cats.
The Green Thumb
Jessica is the owner of Mrs. Fancy Plants; a boutique nursery specializing in rare and semi-rare houseplants and florals. From Philodendrons to Alocasias, she loves all the plants! Jessica took her passion for her own plants and became an expert in plant care and maintenance, and slowly evolved her passion into a business! During the height of the COVID pandemic in 2020, Jessica decided to open Mrs. Fancy Plants and sell houseplants out of her home. With business growing, she has expanded to a custom shed in her backyard that has allowed for in person shopping! Jessica is so excited to share her plant knowledge and expertise with the Girlboss community!
