Fun Fact: I’m ambidextrous, I speak four languages and I love to write poetry.

What challenges have you faced in your career, and how did you overcome them? We all face challenges that we later appreciate as having helped us grow. My two challenges were being a woman in a male-dominated field, and my other challenge was having five kids in 10 years during the busy times of building my career. I learned and grew tremendously from these challenges and now call them my ‘gifts.’ They taught me perseverance, time management, and most importantly, deepened my sense of self-confidence and self-love.

What has been the most monumental moment of your career thus far? Opening my Holistic Spa & Wellness Center in 2017 has been a huge highlight for me since now I am able to truly take care of my patients holistically, body, mind and soul, within the same space. This way of practicing my unique field of Plastic Surgery allows for full transformational journeys that take the results much farther and beyond the scalpel.

How is the healthcare industry important to you personally? It is a way of truly transforming people’s lives for the better. Although we have come a long way in medicine, in my opinion, we still have a long way to go in listening and treating patients more holistically, which is the manner in which patients really want to be treated. We are much more than just our physical beings and therefore, when I listen to my patients and treat them holistically, the results are truly transformative, supporting them in becoming the best version of themselves, body, mind and soul.

How did the pandemic disrupt your specific role in the healthcare industry, and how did you adapt? Overnight the pandemic created a huge amount of stress in people’s lives. The pandemic actually helped me continue to open dialog with my patients. My mission has always been to encourage patients to find a new meaning of beauty, one that ties to our outer and inner being to our overall wellness. In the months after our initial closing, patients became very open to these discussions, as we are all challenged to feel well in these unprecedented times.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten? Learn to listen to your intuition.

What do you love most about working in healthcare? The deep satisfaction I get knowing I enhanced someone’s life through my medical experience, guidance and support.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
