'Modified Doll' works to break down stereotypes

Thursday, November 1, 2012 by PAULA BECK Special to The Press in Local News

Mallory Schoeneberger, 23, of Northampton, got her first tattoo when she was 18.

She is Irish so she chose four-leaf clovers on her hips to celebrate her heritage.

Since then, several more tattoos have followed but most of those were inspired by her love of "Day of the Dead."

Now, those tattoos have brought Schoeneberger together with a group of other modified women for a greater purpose.

You often hear the comment, "It runs in the family."

Such is the case with Kelly Hower, daughter of Blair and Amy Hower, of Kreidersville. She has farming in her blood.

"I grew up around farming and I remember being impressed with my dad's garden. I helped with planting, weeding and harvesting. It was fun helping," Hower said.

Her grandfather worked the family land adjacent to Indian Trail Road. This is the same homestead where her dad was raised. The property is located less than a mile from where Hower and her family live.
