“She believed she could, so she did.” –R.S. Grey

Ladies, this one’s for you. In this issue, we highlight all the wonderful women in our community—artists, business owners and women in the medical field, just to name a few. The following pages are filled with stories to inspire us all to appreciate the women in our lives and to strengthen the connection we have with our mothers, sisters, friends and daughters.

From a feature about the women of OBGYN Associates of Akron to an interview with the woman business owner of Tru Barre Studio, our Women’s issue serves to recognize the powerful role women have in our community and beyond. (And don’t worry, gentlemen; you’ll have your moment—stay tuned.)

So, to the women of Medina County—may you find a quiet moment (or two) to enjoy this issue we’ve lovingly dedicated to you.

Love from one woman to another, 

Emily Shea
