About Us

Grand Traverse Woman is the only magazine that serves women who live, work and play in Northern Michigan. Published by twin sisters, Kandace Chapple and Kerry Winkler, the magazine features articles on health, family, career, education and more.

Publishers & Twin Sisters – Kandace Chapple & Kerry Winkler

Fiften years? It is possible? Over a dozen years of issues and events, family and friends, and most of all, laughter. We love everything GTWoman has become. As twin sisters (yes, identical!), it’s impossible to get through a no-business-allowed pizza together without some new GTWoman idea being hatched. (Crafted by one, rebuffed by the other, then – after some arguing and bread sticks – reborn as Mankind’s Best Idea.) This happens at our GTWoman events, too. Walk into a room full of capable and funny women and you’ll leave with a bit of magic in ye ol’ pocket.
