Tammy Grabel - Publisher, Las Vegas Woman MagazineWe are excited to debut a new look in this issue of Las Vegas Woman Magazine. Our artists at 702West designs have outdone themselves. Kudos, kudos, kudos! As you read though the articles, there’s a refreshingly clean look to each design that makes every story even more enjoyable to read. We love to raise the bar in every issue, and this time our art team has lifted that bar to the clouds. Way to go Troy Doss!

Summer is upon us and I personally love the Las Vegas heat. 100 degrees is alright with me! While our weather can take some getting used to by newbies that move to Las Vegas, we are fortunate to never shovel snow or invest in hurricane shutters. So get out there and enjoy the warm weather by shopping in Summerlin or boating at Lake Mead. Speaking of the heat of summer, remember that hot cars with kids or pets don’t mix. Never leave your baby or four-legged family member in the car to run an errand. I’ve lived here for over 35 years, and every summer I’ve seen this tragic mistake made. The heat can be unassuming at times, so take caution and keep it a summer full of fun memories.

Vacation season is here, and while most of the world is traveling into Las Vegas, we are making plans to head out. My husband, Seth Grabel, and I recently returned from our honeymoon in Vietnam at a property that has their corporate office right here in Las Vegas. Compass Living puts a new twist on traveling and makes it affordable to retire or vacation overseas. Starting on page 32, you can read about our adventures in Vietnam. I know that after reading this story, you will want to explore the idea of traveling to Vietnam!

I wish you the best summer can offer you: full of family memories, good times with friends and success in business. Thank you for picking up Las Vegas Woman magazine. It’s through your readership and the support of our advertisers that makes it possible to feature so many phenomenal women of Southern Nevada.

To educate, entertain & inspire,
