Victoria Rosetti - Sawyer Photography - BSA 0616

As the owner/partner of Jewels with a Purpose, Victoria Rosetti, 49, knows a bit about the sparkle in life. She uses her talents and her business to shine a light on those in need.

What is the best thing you’ve learned about yourself since turning 40?
Tap dancing is not just for little kids and life experience is invaluable. I had my first son at age 40. My 40s are my best years yet. I turn 50 this year and I’m just getting started.

What is your favorite way to give back to your community?
My jewelry business is charity-based, so I give back every day by donating a percentage of sales to charities and organizations. Over the past three years, we’ve supported more than 50 charities and donated thousands of dollars.

How do you stay fit and healthy?
I do high-intensity cardio several times a week,  and I also enjoy running road races, hitting the gym and walking my dog.

What advice do you have for those not yet 40?
Take care of your health first! Exercise and eat foods that add value to your life. Enjoy life, travel and have fun.

Tom Sullivan - Sawyer Photography - BSA 0616

When Tom Sullivan takes the mic, his audience relaxes as though enjoying time with a BFF. This popular television host and emcee lives to bring happiness to others. 

What have you learned about yourself since turning 40?
It wasn’t until I lost some jobs that I realized my career didn’t define me. That period of growth was a valuable life lesson and I’m grateful for the transition.

How do you stay fit and healthy?
I took fitness to the next level in 2015 when, at a party, I met certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist Scott Cameron of Buckhead Elite Training Studio. Scott spoke about Cryo Elite Therapy. I soon tried it and then made the best decision of my life—to improve my God-given body.  I’ve now learned to be truly healthy. I also get a spiritual boost from Pastor Andy Stanley of North Point Ministries and the devotionals of Bob Gass. Also, I look to the experts of Buckhead Wellness Center, Noveau Face and Body Clinic and Esthetic Dental Solutions Spa.

What is your favorite way to give back to your community?
My career gives me the opportunity to do a tremendous amount of charity work. I am so proud of the team effort during my time at Star 94 FM, raising funds for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. In 2012, I took my first mission trip with SERV International, first to the Dominican Republic and later to Africa at their House of Hope orphanage. I literally cried at every turn, overwhelmed with joy and a supernatural peace. I returned two years later, deepening my involvement and experiencing real change in action.

Do you have advice for those not yet 40?
Be humble. Be filled with love and gratitude— those are two of the most powerful words in the English language. Always keep learning and growing.

Dr. Asaf Yalif - BSA 0516

The American Cancer Society® designates May as National Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month--with Monday, May 2, as “Melanoma Monday” and Friday, May 27, as “Don’t Fry Day.” As the weather warms up and you start wearing shorts, swimsuits or sundresses, make sure to put on sunscreen and take note of any new spots on your skin.

Dr. Asaf Yalif of Y Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery offers this tip:  “A simple approach to screening can be to make a routine of examining your skin about every month or two. This way, when a new lesion/spot appears, you can monitor it or, if concerned, schedule an evaluation with your doctor earlier rather than later.”

King - Sawyer Photography - BSA 0617Debra Gray King, DDS, FAACD
Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic Dentistry

Most people don’t often associate the word “artist” with “dentist,” but it was Dr. Debra Gray King’s artistic side that inspired her to start her own cosmetic dentistry practice just a few years after graduating from dental school and moving to Atlanta. In a sea of talented general dentists, Dr. King believes it is her ability to create an artistic smile design, on top of her well-honed dentistry skills, that really makes a difference in changing the lives of her patients.

“I’ve had patients that come back and say, ‘I got that promotion because of my smile’ or ‘I did my smile and six months later I was engaged!’ Maybe we had something to do with it and maybe not, but, a lot of times, when you are so confident in how you look it carries over into other areas of your life.”

Dr. Joye K. Lowman - Sawyer Photography - BSA 0616

A urogynecologist with The Southeast Permanente Medical Group, Dr. Joye K. Lowman, 41, champions the health of those here in Atlanta and abroad, heeding the call of her profession, wherever it may lead.

What has turning 40 taught you?
Don’t beat yourself up about failure. Failure is an important part of a meaningful life and something from which
we learn. 

How do you give back to the community?
Mentoring at-risk youth with a variety of local organizations, developing fair-housing initiatives and medical mission work. I have traveled to Africa, providing medical care to the underserved and hope to return next year. I volunteered with Kaiser for the CARE mobile free health clinic and with Habitat for Humanity. In 2013, I started a company called Moxie Real Estate that renovates foreclosed and abandoned homes and rents them affordably to the working poor. I believe that healthcare and safe housing are rights, not  privileges.

Do you have a favorite quote that inspires your work?
Oh, the words of the great Maya Angelou, “When you learn, teach. When you get, give.”

What do you do to stay fit?
I loving running outdoors in the sunshine with my pup, enjoying time in Lenox Park and healthy meals like spinach salads with quinoa and shrimp.

How do you achieve life balance?
That’s a constant work in progress. I don’t think everything ever balances perfectly.  My goal is to always try to be better, but accept that I’ll fall short.

Kimbrough-Green - Sawyer Photography - BSA 0617Candance Kimbrough-Green, MD
Dermatology Consultants  |  Dermatology and Skin Care

Candance Kimbrough-Green, MD, may have inherited her interest in becoming a doctor from her father (who was a family physician), but the choice to go into dermatology was all her own.  One of the most enjoyable aspects of her specialty is the variety of work she is able to do. She notes that, on top of the fun aspect of her job, such as cosmetic treatments, she also has the opportunity to dive into the medical aspect of dermatology—a side she feels is often overlooked. Providing this type of care to the entire family, from infants to grandparents, particularly makes her job a delight each and every day.

 ”My greatest desire is to ensure that your health is in line and you are happy because you look like a better you!”
