May 1 was my daughter Grace’s first birthday. That was the longest and fastest year of my life! As publisher of Las Vegas Woman magazine, I chose not be to a stay-at-home mother. However, Grace and I have managed to spend every day together in her first year. Where there is a will, there is a way.

I have heard it said that if something needs to done, give it to the busiest person. I wouldn’t boast that I am the busiest person, but I can truly say that my plate is full with being a full-time mom and business owner.
