Welcome to our fall Doctors of the Desert and Wellness issue. This edition is full of inspirational stories from women living their dreams in the medical industry to women reinventing their lives.

Las Vegas is so much more to us locals than what so many come to visit for. In addition to gaming and entertainment, we are a community with big hearts coming together to truly live #VegasStrong.

We are witnessing history in the making. The Vegas Golden Knights united us as we applauded their achievements. The team is proof that you can accomplish so much when you work together for a common goal. They had wins, and they had losses, yet we still celebrated them. I feel there is so much to learn from that season. All of us go through successes and failures, but often we allow those failures to beat us down. We don’t quite know how to recover from them; if we should fight for something or throw in the towel.

The articles in this edition of Las Vegas Woman magazine will motivate you. You will learn about women who have defied odds; lost their way but continue to find their purpose or are simply finding ways to reignite their lives. Life doesn’t always have the outcome we envisioned, but every day is a new day to begin again. We challenge you to give yourself permission to pause to find your way—techniques included.

We are excited to spotlight some of the best doctors and hospitals in Las Vegas. They are here to help you look and feel your best, so you can live with the confidence you deserve. We cover overall wellness, eye and dental health, women’s health and sexual health, and hospice and palliative care. If you need care in any of those areas, reach out to the featured providers.

As we celebrate these inspirational women living life on purpose, we encourage you to go do the same. Allow the examples to help you become reacquainted with your creative energy as you live with clear intentions and well-stated boundaries.

Thank you for allowing us to lead, motivate and celebrate you … one issue at a time.
