October 2018

As leaves turn from green into vibrant shades of red, orange and yellow, we are celebrating Enjoy Magazine’s 12th birthday – and we’re ready to live it up!

This month, we’re also honoring some of the remarkable women in the North State. We’re proud of our female community leaders who are building a vision for the North State’s future, including Redding Rancheria CEO Tracy Edwards, who returned to the area after college to give back to the community that invested in her.

We’re thinking pink this month, and several North State businesswomen are helping women with cancer feel beautiful in the midst of their battle. Heidi Prado has turned the daunting process of wig shopping into an empowering, even fun adventure at Bella La Vie. Then there’s Shanna McCracken, whose Beyond Beauty Esthetics and More provides a welcoming, safe place for women battling cancer to receive customized beauty services.

They’re just a few of the local women making their mark in the business world. Entrepreneur Judy Crawford creates imaginative winter headwear through her company, Tsasdi. And the “Ladies of the 600 Block” in Red Bluff are showing how teamwork makes many dreams work – meet them at the annual Sip and Shop fashion show extravaganza.

On the artistic side, Erin Dertner shows us how to enliven our creative souls through art, while Nicki Carlisle is building the next generation of fiddlers. And after doubling the size of her family by adopting four children from Ethiopia, Natalie Gwyn decided to share her story with the world by writing “Okayest Mom” – a Today Show favorite.

In honor of our 12th anniversary, we’d like to once again thank our readers, advertisers and contributors for their unwavering support to this venture. It is our privilege to tell your stories, and we look forward to sharing everything that’s Enjoy-able about the North State for many years to come.
