Hello FALL…well, as fall as it gets here in Las Vegas!

StephanieI’m excited to share this issue of Las Vegas Woman magazine with you. I feel so privileged to be amongst the women on the cover, and I’d like to share with you how that just did not come naturally for me; I really had to step out of my own way to accomplish this.

For most of my career, I have been a behind-the-scenes person; helping others as the spotlight shined on them. It is my passion to help others reach new heights and I would feel accomplished as I watched them receive the recognition they deserved. Stepping into the spotlight has been one of the most challenging things for me to overcome. The purpose for me sharing this with you is that I hope it will inspire some of you who want to take a leap to also get out of your own way.

It truly is an honor to be a part of the Women Empowering Women feature, as all of the ladies on the cover are leading the way by creating positive change in our community and around the world. They deserve to be celebrated!

Now that summer vacations have concluded and school is back in session, we are gearing up for a favorite season of mine. I enjoy the cooler temperatures, beautiful fall décor and great reads while sipping on pumpkin lattes this time of year. As new colors are introduced into our desert landscape, it is a reminder of how delightful change can be.

There are several featured articles in this issue that will help you ponder your life, where you are on your personal and professional journeys, and suggestions on making improvements to be more aligned with the goals you have set for yourself. We’ve included several business and networking opportunities in order to grow your brand and promote your services on a professional level, as well as philanthropic opportunities, should you choose to donate your personal time to making a difference for the betterment of our community.

I encourage you to pause and take some time to dive deeper into the examples offered in order to enhance or elevate your life. The women (and men) who are featured in this issue will both inspire you and give you something to aspire to. If you would like to grow in any of the areas that they specialize in, please contact them and get that process started. There is no time like the present. What are you waiting for? Go for it!

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


You can always tell who the strong women are. They are the ones you see building one another up, instead of tearing each other down.Anonymous
