EDITOR’S LETTER

Welcome to our July 2019 #Americana Issue!

In this month’s issue, we feature four powerful and enterprising women who are all living their version of the American Dream, building careers and companies from the ground up!

Our cover star is the dynamic and extraordinary Gloria Neal, who is now the Director of Public Affairs in the Office of the Mayor, after having an extensive career in the media industry. She was so gracious in welcoming me into her office and sharing her story. Her Style Guide (to life) on Cherry Creek Fashion TV is required viewing!

Then we are at home for Closet Confidential with Vanessa Lundin, owner of Denver Mobile Teeth Whitening, who shares her journey of creating her company after seeing a void in the market. Vanessa is as charming as her home is beautiful so I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her.

Another fascinating woman who built a company because she couldn’t find what she was looking for in the beauty market is Sirine Swed. Sirine created the very successful Battington Beauty, developing reusable silk lashes never before seen in the beauty industry.

We believe that Cherry Creek is not only a destination but a lifestyle so we caught up with our next #bossbabe in Rino. Kendra Anderson, owner of Bar Helix, has brought some Cherry Creek flavor to her nightlife spot in Rino. She shares how she made it all happen!

Then we are back home on the streets of Cherry Creek to give you a preview of some looks from the 49th annual Cherry Creek North Sidewalk Sale.

Enjoy this issue and see you next month when we will be adding some new voices to the magazine. Stay tuned!
