It’s the little things we come across day after day that manifest and empower us to go out and accomplish cool things. So, in 2009, we started the Got a Girl Crush blog from opposite sides of the country (Meg in Brooklyn and Andrea in San Francisco) to document the never-ending accomplishments of women in hopes to inspire others to do the same.
In 2011, we brought this project to its physical form and started Got a Girl Crush Magazine. Partly because it was the perfect excuse to meet our girl crushes in real-life, and mainly to celebrate the inspiring ladies out there today who are doing cool ass shit. Since then, we’ve launched two issues which you can read online: Issue #1 & Issue #2, and successfully raised money to print Issue #3 on sale September 8th, 2014.
There’s never a shortage of women we can turn to for inspiration, and Got a Girl Crush is a place for us to harness that feeling.
Meg is a woman that wears many hats. She’s a photographer, a skilled retoucher, founder of Brooklyn Skillshare and a an avid cyclist. She lives in Brooklyn, New York with her boyfriend, pug, and turtle.

Brooke is an art-loving Museum Technologist with a penchant for old-timey badass babes and embracing the idiosyncrasies of Elaine Benes. She loves to bike about her beloved borough but has no shame in bumming rides out to a beach or up to a mountain.

Liz is a public radio journalist at 90.5 WESA (wesa.fm) in Pittsburgh, though she spent her formative years with Meg in Ohio.
