Women of PrescottFeaturing local women in their element
Gabrielle Williams is one of those behind-the-scenes people who quietly put the pieces together to (quite literally) run the show. She’s the General Manager of Prescott’s Picture Show movie theater and has been with the company for six years now.
Joan Dwyer is one of Prescott’s very own published authors.
She has lived in Northern Arizona for the past 20 years but moved to Prescott three years ago for the milder winters. She is an established author, but her most recent joy is her children’s book, “The Candy Cane Princess.”
It’s hard to walk into The Purple Cat used book shop without feeling at home. And that’s just the way owner Shari Graham likes it.
Debra Begay Vaughan is a proud tribal leader living in Prescott. Her life is steeped in culture and tradition and she has dedicated her time to keeping her people’s beliefs and way of living alive. Born in Phoenix, Debra is a tribal member of the San Carlos Apache Nation and half Navajo-Keyonnie.
During its 15 years in Prescott, Foot Fetish has striven to create a personalized experience for every shopper who walks through the doors. Originally a shoe boutique, the store has expanded to become a popular clothing and accessory shop, as well.
Owner Loretta Casden said the store’s recent move from its original home in downtown’s Bashford Courts to the Prescott Gateway Mall “has brought about an amazing season of growth.”
As the Sales and Marketing Coordinator for COPTO, Ann works with travel trade and media professionals—including travel agents, tour operators, meeting planners, sports commissioners, social media influencers, and travel writers—to develop and implement campaigns and initiatives designed to increase tourism.
