Debbie Brown has been with Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles for 25 years and loves it as much today as the day she started. Her specialty sales categories are luxury real estate, high-end retail and automotive. Debbie particularly enjoys creating special projects that allow several of her clients to participate in one major event, benefiting her clients and enhancing AH&L’s image in the community as the iconic source for prestigious events. Her goal has always been to establish strong relationships with her clients so they become long time friends and advertisers of AH&L in return.
Elizabeth Ralls is an 11-year magazine-industry veteran who put down roots in Atlanta nearly a decade ago and now resides in Buckhead with her family of five. A shelter editor and writer by trade (and by default, photo stylist and/or child and dog whisperer on shoots), she’s constantly searching for great design for the pages of Atlanta’s only monthly home and garden publication, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles.
Elizabeth Anderson has worked for AH&L since 2006. She lives in the suburbs with her (literally) rockstar husband and three kids. Outside of work, you can find her refinishing furniture, designing a new area of her garden, adding to her tattoo collection or working on fun art projects with her kids.
Miriam Wagner-Griffin has spent the last 20 years in advertising sales specializing in broadcast, print and digital media–11 of which have been with Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles. She is a graduate of The University of Georgia and in her spare time loves playing tennis, walking at The Chattahoochee Nature Park and spending time with her husband, Dan and golden retriever, Bella.
Claire Ruhlin is Assistant Editor at Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, which means she gets to do awesome and creative things (interview inspiring design aficionados, write and edit features for the magazine and blog, design images, run around the city on photo shoots and interact with AH&L readers on social media) and call it her job. Besides an editor, she’s also a book hoarder, new media geek, caffeine slave and taco enthusiast.
As Marketing & Advertising Art Coordinator for Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, Lindsey Wohlfrom spends her days creating print and digital artwork, designing client programs, managing web content, contributing editorial to the magazine + blog and drinking an excessive amount of coffee. In her spare time, she’s a self-professed crafting aficionado with a healthy addiction to brunch, good books and farmer’s markets.
Gina Christman has spent more than half her life at the helm of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles. Now in her 33rd-year as publisher, she enjoys motivating her team to succeed. As an active member of multiple Boards and local cultural and charitable organizations over her career, Gina sees to it that Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles maintains its visibility and prominence as a leader in the community. She is a food and wine enthusiast, known in local wine circles as the Queen of Bubbly for her avid passion for Champagne. She lives with her two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels in Dunwoody, GA.
Brad Hanner started 32 years ago with Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles (formerly Southern Homes) and, as Associate Publisher, has led the magazine in sales year-over-year. He is known around Atlanta (and nationally) as Mr. Kitchen & Bath—no one in the K&B industry would dare make a move without first consulting Brad. He is also sports-obsessed, relentless, tireless and generous to a fault. He lives with his wife Lisa in Marietta, GA.
Julie Shaw is the newest member of our team, having just relocated to Atlanta from Durham, NC. She is a Portland OR native who has been selling advertising since the late 90s, the majority of which has been in magazine. She is married to a ridiculously talented chef who (finally!) has a day job and now cooks for the family almost every single night. When she’s not busy selling advertising, she can be found lounging in coffee shops, trying every restaurant in the city or going on bike rides with her 5 and 10 year old kids. She has a 15 year old mutt named Sadie who she’s convinced will be the first dog to live to 100.
