Women Celebrating Women

The word inspire is defined as the act of filling someone with the urge or ability to do something, and here in Chattanooga, we have no shortage of incredible women who motivate those around them day in and day out.
Whether they intentionally set out to be a role model or random acts of kindness are simply in their DNA, these women are making the world a better place. Read on to learn more about the individuals who encourage others to be the best version of themselves told by those they inspired most.

Her determination and support of those around her inspires me.”

Kris Hacker, Inspired by Nicole Frazier

I met Nicole four years ago at a birthday party. We were both doing what we love: event planning (Nicole) and photography (myself). We built a business connection initially, and over the years it has grown into a true friendship. Nicole is my caring, strong, and straight-to-the-point friend. Her determination and support of those around her inspires me. 

Her views on building community and collaborating have helped me to grow professionally and personally, whether she realizes it or not. We both run a collaborative studio workspace we opened this year. It amazes me to look back on the time three years ago when she reached out randomly with an opportunity to move into a small studio space. Now, we have expanded into a bigger building with more room to grow. 

It’s a blessing to have a friend who is so driven to reach their goals and dreams. It’s even more beautiful when they can cheer you on and motivate you along with them. We will continue to rise together. I love having a friend and business partner like her in my corner!
