Buckhead’s Hidden Gems

Every day we have a choice. We can support an up and coming podcaster, try a new family-run restaurant, join a boutique gym started by a local fitness champ or we could keep giving away our money to the handful of giants who already control so much of our commerce. Our daily decisions impact the kind world we live in; if we want a world where small businesses are growing and artists and creatives are thriving then we should support them with our time, money and attention. We’re proud to highlight inspiring creatives and entrepreneurs each week in Hidden Gems series.  Check out some of Buckhead’s gems below.

Rebecca Clegg

I am a psychotherapist and author who specializes in working with women and helping them heal their relationship with food and body image. This is my passion because I once too had an eating disorder, and I know first hand how destructive eating disorders are to the lives of those individuals who are struggling with them. Read more>>

I studied Finance at Georgia Tech, worked in Investment Banking, and Corporate Finance only to realize being a traditional CFO wasn’t what I wanted to anymore. Deep down, I knew my passion was rooted in health, wellness, and fitness stemming from being an All-Star soccer athlete growing up. I would continually ask myself how do I share my passions with the world; and then, it hit me. Read more>>

Amelia Asali

By the time I was 15, I got my first job as a receptionist and shampoo assistant in a salon in downtown Atlanta. Around my 25th birthday, I experienced an eye-opening period of self-reflection that allowed me to recognize what steps I needed to take to turn my passion into my career. Read more>>

Mary Reid and DeJon Kemper

We recorded our first episode on May 2017. We were inspired by the conversations we had day to day at our 9-5. One topic would spark hundreds of opinions. We were intrigued which topics people were vocal about and what they shied away from. We decided to create a place where they could do both. Read more>>

CROWE

I picked up the Alto Saxophone when I was 10 years old and played all the way through senior year of high school. I started producing in 2003 when I was 16. I was inspired by the rise of then-producer Kanye West and the work he’d done for Roc A Fella along with Just Blaze. Read more>>

Chereene Johns

I got into fashion at a very early age, I always enjoyed mixing and matching garments it was so exciting to me. Unfortunately, I suck at sewing. So, I thought to myself how can I take my love for fashion to the next level without having to sew and quickly the bright idea of starting my own boutique emerged to the forefront. Read more>>

Julia Kahn

When I first started working at Corepower Yoga, they asked me what my Sankalpa was. Sankalpa is a Sanskrit word that means “life purpose” or “life goal”. I thought about it for a while, like a year or more, to really get it down to one phrase. What I finally came up with, was that my Sankalpa is to minimize bad things, by adding in more good things. Read more>>

Donna Garcia

I have always been an artist. I started out as a painter and fell in love with the creative process. While still in high school, I began to study photography under the mentorship of the great Walter Scott. Scott, who was a noted photographer for Time and Life Magazines. But, even with the encouragement of my mentor, by the time I got to college, I did not feel that art could create a viable profession from me, so I put down the camera to pursue a corporate marketing career. Read more>>

Emily Celeste

I was always encouraged by my family to remain creative – I even remember the first time my mother showed me how to draw a horse. Even when I wasn’t drawing, I was always participating in “artsy” extracurricular activities, such as dance, chorus, and horseback riding. I was around horses so much and drew them so much – and spent a lot of time at the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville – that I was definitely labeled the “horse girl” growing up. Read more>>

Kaneica Gray

Most people call me KG. Last time, I was interviewed by Voyager ATL I had just gotten started. I knew I had a purpose for greater but I was scared to REALLY embark on it. However, as we all know, “scared money don’t make no money”. I’m poppin’ cause God made me this way. I’m active on all the visions and assignments he’s given me and The B.A.E Firm is one of his greatest yet. Read more>>

Tuanieha Simms

When Tj was about two months old, he broke out all over his body, so I took him to his pediatrician and they informed me that he had baby acne. I’d never heard of it, nor did I believe it, so I convinced myself that it was something I was using on his skin. I then began researching natural ways to make soaps and lotions and after a few months, I came up with the perfect formula and we haven’t looked back. Read more>>
