Tammy Grabel - Las Vegas Woman MagazineIf you’re looking for a dose of inspiration, then you’ve picked up a perfect issue. Our Summer issue is full of stories featuring locals right in our community.

Take for instance the incredible woman right on our front cover, Jodi Friedman. She’s a savvy businesswoman in real estate and on the flip side, a Reiki Master Teacher. Clients on both sides of her career rave about her. In fact, when I told my sister who was on our next cover, she said “Oh wow! My stepkids and I have taken Jodi’s healing sessions. She was so intuned to us, we loved it!” That was one of many who have sung her praises. I’ve never had a Reiki session, and with all these walking testimonials, my curiosity is peaked and I think I’m due to try one. Her story, Journey from Real Estate to Reiki Master, is featured on page 56.

People To Watch is back this issue featuring four accomplished women in our valley. A diversity of careers is featured through each woman. From UNLV’s Athletics Director, Desiree Reed-Francious, to fashion designer, Rosemarie Macklin of Si Mee Collections, our community is rich with successful women in prominent roles.

Our editor came up with a heartwarming story about fatherhood celebrating dads in entertainment and the fathers who inspire performers. Of course my magical husband, who is an incredible father, is highlighted. Check out what he and other entertainers have to say about fatherhood on page 18, it will certainly leave you saying “awe.”
