Buckhead’s Rising Stars

The heart of our mission at VoyageATL is to find the amazing souls that breathe life into our city. In the recent weeks we’ve had the privilege to connect with some of the Atlanta’s finest artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and rabble rousers and we can’t begin to express how impressed we are with our city’s incredibly deep talent pool.  Check out Buckhead’s rising stars below.

Rachael Ann Gliebe

I believe photography is more about that decisive moment that we take as photographers through our lens. Patience and practice is what allows artistry. Though I have a flare for fashion and a degree in commercial photography, I feel photojournalism is what binds my style and makes it perfect for the story telling of whomever steps into my vision. Read more>>

Chris and India Welton

Chris: I’m an Atlanta native, growing up in the North metro area. I went to college at UGA and was fortunate enough to be on the national championship winning team my senior year. I stayed in Athens to get my MBA and law degree before moving back to Atlanta where I practiced with a large law firm. Read more>>

James Robinson

I am from Piscataway, NJ and when I was 10 years old, I first realized how enthused with all the type of ingredients and dishes my family introduced me to. So, to provide you with a background of my ethnicity, I am biracial. Read more>>

Keith Gispert and Sandy Cox

Me (Keith Gispert) and my better half (Sandy Cox) started this business three years ago. We have both been in the medical sales industry for many years and each had the opportunity to travel for business and pleasure quite a bit. We visited several popcorn shops in different cities and saw an opportunity to bring a different level/better product to the market. Read more>>

Sally Larsen

Sally B’s Skin Yummies is a labor of love, founded by Atlanta-native and self-confessed “product girl” Sally Larsen. A healthy, active, and conscious woman, Sally embarked upon her 30’s as a successful businesswoman, a mother of two young boys, and, like most 30-somethings, without too many cares in the world. But at the age of 37, doctors discovered a cancerous bone tumor growing out of her pelvis. Read more>>

KaSundra Anderson

I started doing nails at the age of 13 years old, in Upstate New York. Once I totally finished college and graduated, I decided to move to Atlanta. From there I decided to go to school to become an esthetician. And the mix of all that I continue to work hard and connect with different people here in Atlanta. Read more>>

Jeffrey McQuithy

After working as a stylist with a top salon in Buckhead for 13 years, I had the vision and intent of creating a salon that was unparalleled to any, not only in structure and space, but also one with an environment that attracts and nurtures the most talented artists in the city. Read more>>

Elmore McConnell

I got my Degree from Mississippi State University in 2005 in Exercise Science. I moved from Alabama to Los Angel and then to Atlanta. After finding that most clients have faced some of the same issues I have faced through life I fell in love with just being able to Motivate, Inspire and Challenge them no matter their background or belief system. Read more>>

Gigi Fernandez

I’ve been a Massage Therapist since 2010. Prior to becoming owner in 2014, I worked for the company for four years. My old boss wanted to travel and couldn’t because of the business so she sold it to me. It was one of the best things that ever happened to me. Read more>>

Katherine Mason

My background is actually in PR and Marketing, so creating a brand from scratch was always extremely appealing to me. I’ve wanted to have my own business since I was about 12 years old… it was just a matter of finding out what that was! Read more>>

Sabrina Davis

I grew up in Miami Beach but also lived in southern California for a year when I was 10. I got the California bug at a young age so when I graduated college I moved back out there. I loved the lifestyle, the laid back attitude and the relaxed yet sexy style. Read more>>
