SHAWNEE LEONARD | EDITOR IN CHIEF & PUBLISHER
Shawnee is a full time student, makeup artist, emerging wedding planner, and many more. She recently graduated from El Centro College with an AAS in Fashion Marketing and will be transferring to UNT Dallas to complete an BAAS with a concentration in Hospitality Management and Communication Studies. Shawnee decided to start Moxie Brides due to her observing a lack of seeing wedding inspiration for nontraditional couples, alongside the lack of diversity and inclusiveness in the wedding industry. During her free time, she is hitting up bars, being a wine enthusiast, writing, reading books, hanging out at coffee shops, and being a dog mom to Melissa, a Black Lab and Border Collie mix.

KRISTIN JOINER | ART DIRECTOR
Kristin brings a multi-disciplinary design perspective to Moxie Brides Magazine. After many years as Art Director of a monthly lifestyle publication and events company, she took her freelance design and letterpress business full time in 2014. A lover of all things handmade, unique and personal for weddings, she tends to naturally fall into the role of planner for all her girlfriends' big days (and some clients too!), so Moxie Brides is a great fit! In her spare time, Kristin is always making something—paper flowers are the project du jour—and soaking up the summer sun with friends.
