Hi! I’m Lynn,
I never pictured myself in the magazine business, but here I am. I started Charlotte PinC in 2020 as a way to promote Women of Color in the Charlotte area. I called on several friends to do a photoshoot, and Charlotte PinC was born. In addition to being the Publisher of Charlotte PinC, I am the mother of two college grads and a high schooler. During the week you will find me at my office in downtown Charlotte, where I am the Chief Executive Officer of a consulting firm. In my free time, you’ll probably find me either reading or planning my next adventure!
Hi! I’m Paige,
I have been with Charlotte PinC since its conception back in 2021. I am the editor of Charlotte PinC content and work to highlight and support Women of Color in my community. One of my favorite things about my job is that each day is different, and I’ve attended so many fun events because of it. In my free time, you’ll likely find me at the movies, restaurants, or at the beach. I hope that you enjoy Charlotte PinC as much as I do!
Hi! I’m Corine,
I joined the Charlotte PinC team in September 2021 and instantly fell in love with our magazine’s mission and work. In June 2022, I officially joined the Charlotte PinC staff as a content creator. I also proudly own and operate my own photography business, Corine Olarte Photography LLC, as a bisexual, Filipino American woman who promotes positive self-perception and aims to showcase creative concepts featuring diverse models and everyday people. Outside of work, I love all things nerdy and artistic, such as anime, manga, comic books, TV shows, movies, drawing, museums, books, etc. I love my family, friends, and children (dogs) so much and will always get into sappy moods every few weeks thanking them for being the most wonderful people in existence. I am excited to continue working alongside an amazing staff to empower women of color in Charlotte and beyond!
As a woman of color, nothing is more important to me than the exposure of fellow women who are making their mark in Charlotte. I joined Charlotte PinC in August to be part of the exposure. I am a proud Afro-Latina, of Spaniard and Puerto Rican descent, who specializes in community reporting. In my spare time, I like to read and discover something new. I am excited to take on this role to continue to highlight and report on women of color, and to show that we can truly, run the world! (Play Beyonce x Run the World)
