Inspiration from Sandy Springs

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 rising stars from in and around Sandy Springs below.

Sarah Druckman

Chiropractic is a second career for me. In my 20s I owned a fashion design company in Detroit and toured with bands. I found this career unfulfilling and was struggling with terrible eczema and food allergies. I decided to go back to college to begin a new career path that would support not only my health and wellbeing but also others in return! Read more>>

Don McMinn

I learned to work from an early age from my dad and grandfathers. I was never given an allowance and stared working at age 6 recycling aluminum cans and soda bottles. By age 9 my brother and I had saved up enough money to buy a lawnmower and started our own landscaping business that we operated through high school with over 50 clients. Read more>>

Jenna Minecci

My story starts as a young girl loving soccer and wanting to grow up and be just like Mia Hamm. I wasn’t alone though, the soccer craze in the 90s was huge and millions of young girls starting signing up to play! But with that came staggering injuries; most notable an increase in the number of ACL injuries in female athletes. Read more>>

Theo Keyserling

Meridian Group Partners was founded on a belief of serving well, both our clients and our personal passion of serving others in need. After an expatriate assignment abroad, I realized because of the communication barrier, the element of service had left my life. Read more>>

Curtis J. Williams

Growing up, I loved to play video games just like any other kid. I wanted the “new” game, the “new” gaming system every time one was released as would any young kid would. I would ask my mom who would tell me to ask my dad, whom would easily say, “no” or to “use your own money.” Read more>>

Amy Jo Wright

I was about 6 or 7 when my parents bought me my first 110 film camera! I took photos of everything from my teddy bears to my little brother. I remember one of the greatest joys I had back then was picking up that developed roll of 4×6 prints. Read more>>

Deanna Corey, Sadonia Walker

I was born and raised in a wonderful little town named Hawkinsville, GA, where everyone knows, everyone, where everyone is someone. I am so blessed to have been raised by a wonderful mother and father who supported me in whatever I wanted to do in life. Read more>>

Salvador Sierra

Born in Mexico City, Mexico, my family relocated to Aurora, IL, when i was 5. There I attended both High School and College. On a whim, I visited Atlanta with a friend the summer of 92; I picked up & moved here that fall! Read more>>

Deanna Anderson

Twelve years ago, I took the leap of faith to leave an industry leading PR agency and take my energetic and effective approach to business and create my own agency – 705 Marketing, a boutique marketing firm which specializes in brand development, social media and PR for consumer, technology and nonprofit clients. Read more>>

Camille Telicia

If someone would have told me 12 or 13 years ago, when I was still in undergrad, that I would be working for myself as a transformational coach, I would have only believed half of that statement. I always knew that I was going to be an entrepreneur, but I was adamant about NOT wanting to work 1-on-1 with people in any sort of “let me listen to your problems” capacity, despite the fact that I was actually a Psychology major in school. Read more>>
