Irving’s Rising Stars

The heart of our mission at VoyageDallas 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 Dallas-Fort Worth area’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 Irving and surrounding areas below.

Dr. Ashley Bellard-Hutchinson

Dr. Ashley Bellard grew up in a small farming community in southwest Louisiana. Ashley’s love for animals and their care began on her father’s farm. As a young girl, Ashley dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. In 2007, she fulfilled that dream and graduated from Louisiana State University’s School of Veterinary Medicine. Read more>>

Sharla Jaynes

I’ve always loved baking and also making crafts/scrapbooking. I randomly took a cookie decorating class in December of 2016 just for fun and I loved it. I got to be crafty and bake at the same time! I made my first cookies that Christmas (2016) as gifts for a few friends and I’ve been making them ever since! Read more>>

Simone Marshall

Growing up as a young African American American girl there was a absence of Mentorship in my community. While in high school there was a requirement that we did community service hours in order to graduate. I decided to do food drives with local churches and during this time of my dedication to service I saw a overwhelming sense of appreciation. Read more>>

Amy Rogers

Sing Your Way Home has been a lifelong dream of mine. I discovered a love for music early in life (beginning piano lessons at the age of 7), and after pursuing the perfect-fit of a career (music therapy), the dream was born to own my own business serving families through music therapy and music education services. Read more>>

Kelli Armstrong

We are a husband and wife team that purchased the business from the company that took care of our system. John had his whole house water purification system for 24 years and the unit is the most efficient on the market. Read more>>

Jean Cozier

Since I was young I’ve always been interested in fashion and the older I got, I started to look at different ways to get in the industry. I started different things like t-shirt lines and accessory lines but I figured that wasn’t the right path for me. Read more>>

Dee Jackson

I started my company as a result of being newly divorced and out of the need to support my two young sons on my own. I found myself in a space I have never been in before which was desperate to provide my children a home that wasn’t “broken” and confused on how to achieve that. Read more>>

Elishia Featherston

I began in health care at the age of 19 as a surgical technology working at a pediatric hospital. I then started nursing school shortly there after. I found myself a single parent working full time and going to school. I finished my BSN at the age of 22. Read more>>

Terrance Glaze, Erik Galvan, Cory Hinojosa, Guilherme Andrade

We began as an impromptu high school music project that quickly lead to the discovery of our mutual love for playing and creating new music. The Overheads originally consisted of four high school friends, but eventually the time came for one of us to go a separate way. Read more>>

Jillian Propes

My entrepreneurial spirit developed at a very early age when my older brother and I started a lawn care service in our neighborhood. I was like the manager. I would knock on the doors and speak to the customers. I would figure out exactly what services they needed, negotiate a price and help my brother execute the service. Read more>>
