Inspiring Stories from Southern Atlanta

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 Southern Atlanta’s rising stars below.

Alysha Harvey

I have always wanted to be an entrepreneur, my own boss, work with numbers, and help others. I then decided to pursue my Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting at Savannah State University then worked for Certified Public Accounting firms immediately following my degree. I finally thought earning my Master’s Degree in Accounting from Kennesaw State University would give me greater satisfaction at the firm I last worked at, but I wanted more. Read More>>

Immediately following my graduation from Lassiter High School in Marietta, I attended Georgia College & State University where I studied Physics.

Sheila Wyatt and Anna Lindberg

We began our separate journeys as myofascial release therapists and business owners about seven years ago, but our stories begin way before that when we were actually patients of this work. Myofascial release addressed a variety of physical and emotional issues for us, and we knew we had to share this gift with others. We both completed schooling in massage therapy (one in Pennsylvania and one in Ohio) and took numerous courses in the Barnes’ Approach to Myofascial Release. Read More>>

MICHELE ELLIS-WILLIAMS

I chose to enter the Home Care industry in 2014 after going through a life-changing event that challenged me to find and pursue my life’s mission. I have always been a firm believer that we are all on this Earth for a reason – that every one of us has a special calling on our lives.
