The Team


Kimberly Dow, Owner, Publisher & Creative Director

Kim is the creator and owner of Sass Magazine and serves as publisher and creative director. She is also the owner of Sass’s sister company, Sass Studios, a graphic design, and branding studio in downtown Frederick, MD that focuses on working with women in business. “It has been a life-long dream of mine to create a magazine…from the editorial ideation and brainstorming to the layout and design, and even all the nitty-gritty inbetweens! Every day I am awestruck by the amazing accomplishments women in our community have made (including the incredible women on the Sass Team!). I can’t WAIT for our first issue to be out (this September!) so their inspiring stories can be shared!”


Brittany Carpenter, Fashion Editor

Brittany serves as Sass’s fashion diva (and editor)! She is also the manager at Chic to Chic, Inc, a consignment boutique in downtown Frederick, MD. “I am excited to get to share my fashion expertise and knowledge with a whole new group of people. But most importantly, I am excited to help women realize their full beauty and style, no matter their age, race, or size!”


Chrissy Moore, Copy Editor & Writer

With degrees in English, theater, teaching, and educational theater, Chrissy definitely keeps us creative but also keeps our copy in line as our copy editor and lead writer. She is also a middle school teacher at A Mario Loiederman For the Creative & Performing Arts in Montgomery County, MD.


Alicia Schwartzbeck, Bookkeeping & Accounting

Alicia’s attention to detail, organization, and problem-solving approach to everything makes her the best gal to run Sass’s budget, invoicing, and bookkeeping. She also serves as the bookkeeper for two different construction companies.

Cecelia Lee, Design Team

Cecelia is a graphic designer for Sass Magazine. “Sass creates a safe, accepting environment for women to grow and learn together within our community. I love how welcoming the magazine is to all women.”
