Entertainment IS Las Vegas, with Live Shows, PR events, movies, television, commercials, and plenty of action happening around the town.

For all these fun and dynamic activities going on in our city, there is usually a Stuntman or Stuntwoman gripping and rousing the crowds as they are not identified or heard; they are the unsung heroes.

Rich Hopkins has lived in Las Vegas for 33 years and has been in the Film & Television Industry since 1988. Hopkins has done over 300 productions. He is a respected businessman in our town. He started his company Thrillseekers Unlimited in 1992. His everyday job is coordinating stunts that are extremely dangerous. With three decades of experience (and a little luck), Hopkins and his stunt partners have not been seriously hurt in any of their stunts, and perhaps that is why he puts SAFETY first in his business.

“Safety is important, particularly when you are the Stunt Coordinator of a production.”  Hopkins is responsible for ensuring the safety of his stunt team, and the entire cast and crew.  “Every stunt is unique,” he adds. Hopkins works with directors to

create their visions for a scene. For instance, Hopkins must collaborate with all departments. He directs the stunt sequences and works with his team to ensure that everyone is prepared to Go to Camera. Calculations are important, especially if the scene involves scaling the Tropicana Casino, which Hopkins has done! He’s also performed a 1000’ Skyscraper descent in Dallas as “Spiderman” for Blockbuster.

Hopkins has had an interesting life with the long list of celebrities he has worked with, including Sir Richard Branson, Ben Affleck, Mel Gibson, Mickey Rourke, Mark Hamill, and Wesley Snipes to name a few. Don’t forget the Locals in Vegas. “I have worked with Nicolas Cage, Celine Dion, Criss Angel, Carrot Top, The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Pawn Stars, and American Restorations. Most recently, I was a ‘Stunt Driver Double’ for Andre Agassi and former VGK player, Max Pacioretty, for Toyota.”

Hopkins has enjoyed great press over the years in The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, USA Today, Local Print & Network TV, dozens of times. National Shows include Entertainment Tonight, Inside Edition, The Today Show, I Dare Ya, MTV Sports, multiple ESPN Shows, and more.

Hopkins states: “Most Stuntmen or Stuntwomen should have a primary background such as military, auto racing, martial arts, Cirque, gymnastics, action sports, equestrian, etc.

In addition, Stuntmen and Stuntwomen should be self-disciplined, such as going to a gym, eating healthy, and doing as many athletic activities as possible. My non-stunt passion is Disc Golf.”

Hopkins also works as an “Action Actor,” too. His recent supporting role was with Nicolas Cage in “Sympathy for the Devil” and a pivotal scene with Mel Gibson in “Boneyard.” In stunts, he has put himself in treacherous situations with high falls, body fire burns, car stunts, helicopters, and building rappels. He simply goes into a death trap and walks away without a scratch.

Hopkins wrapped it up with, “I have been waiting for three decades to see our Las Vegas film family prosper with the new SONY/Summerlin Studios. This can be a film local’s dream. Las Vegas is ripe to have many films shot here, as it is the best place for filming movies, television, commercials, and anything and everything one can imagine.”

Las Vegas is home to thousands of quality bars and restaurants, with one of the largest nightlife scenes in the US. From coffee shops and breakfast joints, to dinner restaurants and classy bars, this city has it all! In a city teeming with locals of all ages, there’s always something for everyone, and we at MYVEGAS know all the hottest spots. Whether it’s a family outing or ladies’ night out, we’ll help you find the perfect place to wine, dine and unwind!



Since a young age, John Holland, Executive Chef and Owner of Rollin Smoke Barbeque, knew that cooking was in his bones. Growing up, John would ask his mother to prepare the Thanksgiving desserts, and even grilled for his friends and co-workers after long days in the Arkansas oil fields.

At only 24 years old, John decided to pursue his culinary dream and move to Las Vegas to attend La Cordon Bleu.

John soon realized that not a single BBQ restaurant around the valley resembled the true Southern roots of home. He decided it was time to take his mobile smoker/grill to the side of Russell Road, in a hardware store parking lot with his dad and brother to put the true taste of the South in everyone’s mouth. The first day, the team sold 3 sandwiches. The second day, they sold 7 and continued to grow their business, deciding to open their first brick and mortar location in 2012. Shortly after, Rick Harrison and his father became regulars at the restaurant, eventually offering them a partnership in the plaza next to Gold and Silver Pawn Shop.

John had no idea that his once small mobile smoker/grill would grow to this extent, and continuously expand. Winning numerous BBQ competitions, receiving national recognition in the top 16 Hottest New Barbeque restaurants, recognition as Top 20 best Barbeque restaurants in the country, being featured on channels like Food Network, Discovery Channel, and many more are just a few of Rollin Smoke’s accomplishments over the years.

The moment you walk through the door of any of their three Las Vegas locations, you are met with genuine Southern hospitality. The meats are smoked with Hickory wood and prepared with the “low and slow” process, and you can taste the love and effort put into the mouthwatering meats at Rollin Smoke. Some of the most famous dishes at the restaurant include the Fried Catfish, Beef Ribs, and Smoked Meatloaf. The diverse menu and homemade sauces cover a range of palates, especially the BBQ craving ones.

Serving delectable barbeque is not the only astounding act that John and his team bring to the Vegas community. At the Highland location, they have a special menu where a

portion of the proceeds go to “Critical Care Comics,” an incredible group that dresses up as comic book characters and reads to sick children. They also enjoy participating in Pigs for Kids charity cook-off and the Best Dam BBQ in Boulder City. They donate to a plethora of organizations throughout the city and continue to look for more opportunities to give back.

In the next ten years, there are exciting plans of expansion to bring their BBQ and southern love all over the United States. They also offer sauces and rubs on the website, as well as catering services for 10 to 10,000 people. Stay tuned as they continue to keep Rollin’! MV

Abuela’s Tacos has been serving up mouth-watering Mexican cuisine to the community since 2011.

The founder, Leslie Valdes, was inspired to start the restaurant after a difficult experience at Sunrise Hospital with her grandmother, Abuela Sara. The doctor had warned them that Abuela Sara might not make it through her surgery because of her age, and it hit Leslie hard to think that she might lose her.

Having just graduated with her MBA, Leslie decided to honor her grandmother by opening a restaurant dedicated to her. Abuela Sara was known for her delicious Cuban food, and Leslie wanted to bring that same passion and flavor to the community. Despite the recession and the odds being stacked against them, Leslie signed the lease for an old mechanic shop in her childhood neighborhood and opened Abuela’s Tacos on January 21, 2011.

The recipes at Abuela’s Tacos come from the main cook, Rita Ayala, who uses her Abuelita’s recipes from Durango, Mexico. Leslie and her team knew that they had to make everything homemade and from scratch to ensure that the food tasted just like it was made by someone’s grandmother. Even with very little staff at the beginning, everyone put their hearts into the restaurant to make it a success.

The first five years were critical for the restaurant’s survival, but just when they had made it past that milestone, COVID-19 hit. It was a challenging time for Abuela’s Tacos,

but Leslie knew that some of her staff relied on the restaurant to make ends meet. They pivoted to curbside and delivery options, and with the support of their loyal customers, they were able to keep the doors open and continue serving the community.

Now, twelve years later, Abuela’s Tacos has not only survived but thrived. They sponsor as many youth teams as they can and hold car washes and fundraisers to help the community when in need. And they have been recognized for their outstanding food and service, having been voted Best Tacos LV twice with the Review Journal, once with the Las Vegas Weekly, and even featured on Netflix’s Tacos of Chronicles. In 2021, the restaurant was even honored to be part of the Allegiant Stadium, with two stands inside the stadium. They’ve even won an award with the Vegas Knights.

Leslie credits her success to her amazing staff, including her kids and her mom, who have helped her tremendously over the years. But more than anything, it’s the passion and love for Abuela Sara that drives Leslie and her team to keep making amazing food and giving back to the community.

Abuela’s Tacos is not just a restaurant, it’s a symbol of the power of love and dedication. As they continue to grow and evolve, it’s clear that Abuela’s Tacos will always be more than just a restaurant - it’s a living legacy of Abuela Sara’s spirit and the enduring power

of family, love, and great food. Abuela’s Tacos is proof that with passion, determination, and a little bit of love, anything is possible.

When the craving arises for quality ingredients and indulgent flavors, we’d like to introduce you to BBQ Mexicana.

BBQ Mexicana offers a tantalizing fusion of Mexican influence and traditional barbecue, with a commitment to “conscientiously sourced ingredients.” The brains behind BBQ Mexicana have been in the culinary scene for many years, opening familiar restaurants like the iconic Border Grill at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. BBQ Mexicana housed its first location across from the original Border Grill and continued to open locations inside Allegiant Stadium, T-Mobile Arena, and the Las Vegas Ballpark.

Led by celebrity chefs, Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken, their focus has always been on using quality products, whenever and wherever possible. From seasonal, locally grown produce to meats raised without antibiotics or hormones, every dish is as fresh as you can get.

BBQ Mexicana has recently opened its newest location in the Southwest Las Vegas area and we couldn’t wait to taste it for ourselves! We had the pleasure of touring the menu with the Regional General Manager, Yancy Perez, who was amazing at capturing the

essence of their brand and their mission: Quality. At first glance, we knew we were in for a killer meal!

We first tried the Avocado Chicken Burrito, which is a crowd favorite and we can understand why! The mesquite smoked chicken is tender and perfectly complemented by the creamy avocado cream and crunchy cilantro coleslaw. Similarly, the slow-smoked brisket in the Smoked Brisket Taco melts in your mouth, and you can tell the attention to detail in each bite. Their menu also features perfectly crafted taco pairs, as well as indulgent and nutritious salads that are packed with flavor.

No meal at BBQ Mexicana is complete without indulging in their sides. The freshly made chips paired incredibly with their Guacamole. And, you have to try their freshly made BBQ Chicharrones with Guacamole, it’s a combination you don’t expect! For something a bit more decadent, the Chipotle Mac and Cheese is a must-try, offering a comforting blend of creamy cheese, a dash of smoky flavor, and the perfect crunch.

Save room for dessert, as BBQ Mexicana’s peach empanada is a sweet conclusion to any meal. And if you’re in the mood for something extra special, their chocolate chip cookies sprinkled with a touch of salt are sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.

So, the next time you find yourself hungry for fresh, unbeatable flavors, make sure to pay a visit to BBQ Mexicana. Your taste buds will thank you for it!

The Tea Terrace FANCY


In the heart of Las Vegas, there is a quaint little tea room that transports you to the English countryside with every sip of tea. The Tea Terrace is a charming, woman-owned establishment that offers afternoon tea, a British tradition that has been enjoyed for centuries.

But what makes this place unique is not just the delicious scones and perfectly brewed tea, but the empowering story of how it came to be.

Inga Parunyan, an inspiring woman with an exquisite taste in teas, opened her doors in the summer of 2020, amidst the chaos of the pandemic. While many businesses were closing down, The Tea Terrace was born out of the determination and passion of its owner. Inga had always dreamt of opening a tea room, a place where people could gather, connect, and enjoy a cup of tea. But she never thought she would be doing it in the middle of a pandemic.

Like many others, Inga was faced with uncertainty and fear. But she saw an opportunity to create something beautiful amidst the chaos. Inga and her daughter Valeria spent months researching and planning, perfecting every detail to create the perfect tea room experience. From the dainty tea sets to the delicate floral arrangements, every aspect of The Tea Terrace is carefully thought out to provide an authentic British tea experience.

are brewed to perfection, and the sandwiches are made with the freshest ingredients. But the star of the show is the scones. They are freshly baked, warm, and served with clotted cream and homemade jam. The scones are a true testament to the skill and dedication of the tea room’s bakers.

The Tea Terrace’s signature offering is the afternoon tea, a beloved British tradition that dates back to the 1800s. It is a meal that is taken between lunch and dinner and consists of a selection of tea, sandwiches, scones, and cakes. The Tea Terrace’s version of this tradition is a feast for the senses. They offer a large selection of exclusive teas that

The Tea Terrace is more than just a place to indulge in tea and scones. It is a space that celebrates women empowerment. Inga’s vision for the tea room was not only to create a beautiful space, but also to provide opportunities for women. She wanted to create a space where women could gather, connect, and support each other. And she has done just that.

The Tea Terrace’s commitment to women empowerment extends beyond its walls. They source their tea and other ingredients from local, women-owned businesses. Inga believes in supporting women-owned businesses and creating a community of strong, empowered women.

As you sit in the tea room, surrounded by the aroma of freshly brewed tea and the gentle chatter of women, you can’t help but feel a sense of warmth and comfort. The Tea Terrace offers group reservations for all sorts of celebrations; from Bridal Showers to Baby Showers and everything in between.

In a time when the world feels uncertain and chaotic, The Tea Terrace offers a glimpse of hope and beauty. It is a reminder that even in the darkest of times, we can create something beautiful. Inga’s story is a testament to the power of determination and passion. She took a leap of faith, and now she has created a space that not only brings joy to others but also empowers women. The Tea Terrace is a beacon of hope and a reminder that when women come together, they can create magic. MV 6830 S

Introducing Chill Bar and Grill: a restaurant that boasts a complete menu inspired by dishes from southern Italy with a Mediterranean twist.

They are best known for taking wellknown favorites and elevating them to a level well beyond the norm. This includes items such as their fresh specialty pizzas prepared to perfection in their brick pizza oven. There’s the 10”, 12” Neopolitana, 14” and 12” gluten-free options. Choices include Pizza Margarita (Passata tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, basil leaf, and olive oil), Pizza Prosciutto (Passata tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, burrata, prosciutto, and basil leaf), Pizza Pepperoni, Pizza Fig & Balsamic (Fresh ricotta cheese, caramelized onion, figs, and gorgonzola), Pizza Supreme (Mozzarella, sausage, pepperoni, mushroom, onion, bell pepper and black olives), Pizza Diavoletta (Passata tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, hot capicola ham, basil leaf, and chili oil), Pizza Meat Lovers (Passata tomato sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, sausage,

The restaurant serves Italian and Mediterranean dishes, as well as American favorites such as their six-piece bone-in chicken buffalo wings. Chill Bar and Grill also offers specialty menu items, which include house-cut French fries tossed in truffle garlic sauce with sautéed mushrooms and a parmesan crisp. Those are only a couple of the appetizers that they offer!

Other menu items include gourmet pastas (Paccheri Boscaiola, Gnocchi Al Gorgonzola with chicken or shrimp, Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken or shrimp, and Penne Alla Bolognese), sandwiches (Bison Burger, Panino Al Pollo Sandwich, and Prosciutto Sandwich), salads (Greco Salad, gluten-free Popeye Spinach Salad, Caprese and Caesar salad), seafood (Shrimp skewers, Fried Shrimp, Salmon, and Calamari served with aioli sauce), and gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options as well.

Conceived by the great culinary mind of Giancarlo Bomparola, owner/operator of the popular Las Vegas Italian restaurant Siena Italian Authentic Trattoria, Chill Bar and Grill provides a casual-dress atmosphere where diners can enjoy a relaxing ambience, hence the name. When asked what inspired Giancarlo to open Chill Bar and Grill, his response was simple; he was looking to embark on a new culinary “adventure.” Located at 7905 W. Sahara Avenue, Suite 102-103, Chill Bar and Grill also hosts live performances every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. They also host a happy hour menu twice a day, from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM with a reverse happy hour starting at 9:00 PM and lasting until closing. The restaurant is also available for events and all-day buyouts, so they are well-equipped to service all your leisure or corporate needs. MV

In a world where flawless skin is often elusive, Sarit Shoshani, the owner of Skin Shine Stetic, stands as a beacon of hope for those struggling with hyperpigmentation and other skin issues.

As an advanced aesthetician, Sarit has not only overcome her own battle with hyperpigmentation but has also developed a unique approach to skincare that has garnered attention and admiration from her clients.

Skin Shine Stetic, located in Summerlin, Las Vegas, offers a boutique-like experience with personalized attention and a focus on achieving lasting results.

Sarit’s journey to becoming a skincare specialist stems from her personal struggle with hyperpigmentation, which haunted her for two decades. Despite her tireless efforts to find a solution, she was left disappointed by the lack of effective treatments and spent years relying on heavy makeup to conceal her skin imperfections. The turning point came during a fateful summer in Mexico, where Sarit experienced the devastating effects of hyperpigmentation firsthand, despite taking precautions. Determined to find a real solution, she embarked on a mission to become the professional she had always sought, but never found.

At Skin Shine Stetic, Sarit has crafted a comprehensive skincare approach centered around the 20/80 system. This unique methodology emphasizes that 20% of the results are achieved through in-clinic treatments, while the remaining 80% is dependent on the client’s commitment to consistent athome skincare. By empowering her clients to take charge of their skincare routines,

Sarit ensures long-lasting and transformative results. Her treatments cater to individuals of all skin tones and address a range of concerns, including acne and aging, with a special focus on hyperpigmentation.

Central to Sarit’s success are the professional skincare products she utilizes, sourced from an Israeli brand. These products have played a pivotal role in her journey, offering remarkable results in a short span of time. Combining advanced ingredients and optimal synergy, these formulas provide fast and effective solutions for her clients. The skincare line’s concentration and safety make it suitable for all skin types and tones, targeting various types of hyperpigmentation, including solar, hormonal, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

At Skin Shine Stetic, the client’s journey begins with a comprehensive consultation and a thorough understanding of their medical history, skin concerns, and goals. Sarit believes that understanding a client’s previous experiences and lifestyle choices is crucial to tailor treatments effectively. During each treatment session, Sarit takes the time to educate her clients about the techniques used and the benefits they can expect. This personalized approach sets Skin Shine Stetic apart from conventional aesthetician services, ensuring that clients are well-informed and actively involved in their skincare journey.

By providing comprehensive kits containing all necessary products, Sarit ensures that her clients have everything they need to achieve optimal results. She firmly believes in the significance of maintaining skincare routines at home and emphasizes the importance of melanin inhibitors and the prevention of further damage, making homecare an essential component of the treatment process.

Sarit Shoshani, the visionary behind Skin Shine Stetic, is an inspiration for those seeking to conquer their skincare challenges. With a focus on personalized attention, advanced skincare products, and empowering her clients through education, Sarit has emerged as a trusted professional in the field. Visit Skin Shine Stetic today and take the first step towards the radiant, flawless skin you deserve. MV, skinshinestetic

Dr. Josh Renk, DDS, MSD


These are words often used to describe Anna Stewart Billings. Among other things, Anna has a desire to empower women and children to be the best they can be. Her desire to help and uplift others comes from a lifetime of learning – about people, about business, about hard knocks, but most importantly -- about herself.

The name Anna means grace and Anna is indeed a woman of grace. She was born in Bisbee, Arizona of German, Mexican, Cherokee Indian, and Scottish descent. As she watched her mother raise her five siblings, she learned what it took to take positive action to get things done. Her mother is her inspiration and the light that has guided her to achieve greatness.

This inspiration and strength is what Anna has had to lean on during what has been the most difficult year of her life – her son Gabriel Vian suddenly passed away in 2023. A mother’s worst nightmare - she misses his daily phone calls, fun-loving teasing and how he brightened her days. The shining light in all this darkness is that Gabriel left her with her beautiful grandson, Braunsin, who will continue his dad’s legacy. Anna is dedicating this article to her son Gabriel.

Anna’s giving and caring spirit touches everyone in the community. She cares deeply about disadvantaged women and children. As the manager for the Anne Fontaine boutique in the Forum Shops for the last 18 years, she has contributed generously to many charities, including St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Women United and the Forgotten Song Foundation, with her unique events and fashion shows. Giving back is especially important to Anne Fontaine, which is what inspired Anna to get involved.

That giving passion crossed over to her home life when Anna and her husband adopted their youngest nearly 20 years ago – a

special needs baby from a troubled home. She knew that they could make a difference in the young man’s life. Their caring devotion was rewarded when their son Evin graduated high school and is now pursuing a career. Family life is especially important to Anna, they have a total of three sons and three grandchildren.

Despite Anna’s humble beginnings she always sets her aspirations high. Many opportunities were placed in front of her throughout her life – each one building on the next. If someone tells Anna she cannot do something, it only drives her to do that –and better than anyone else.

That desire to do it better than anyone else shows up in everything Anna does. Fiercely competitive, it is a rare day you will find Anna quietly managing the boutique, which is why her store consistently ranks as #1 in sales in the world for Anne Fontaine. Even with her commitment at work, she finds the time to not only volunteer, but to be a leader. Anna currently is the Soiree Fashion Chair for the St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Viva Las Vegas 2024, and Fashion Chair and Ambassadress for Women United. Her energy is endless.

Anna’s has earned her numerous awards, including the ATHENA International Award, Best Buddies Champion, Women’s Hall of Fame of Nevada, and Top 100 Women, to name a few.

With great humility, Anna openly admits that her strength and grace are gifts from God. She believes that women want to be recognized as powerful, smart, strong, and beautiful – and that is what she strives for every day. MV

Seeking a sun-kissed glow is a timeless pursuit, prompting individuals to weigh the pros and cons of various tanning methods like salons, outdoor sunbathing, and redlight therapy.

Navigating the world of tanning is important to us here at Vegas Tan, whether at a salon or under the natural sunlight, requires a thoughtful approach to ensure a healthy and radiant glow. Here are the do’s and don’ts of both tanning salons and outdoor suntanning:



• Understand Your Skin Type: Consult with Vegas Tan staff to determine your skin type and set appropriate tanning times.

• Use Indoor Tanning Lotions: Enhance results and protect your skin with lotions designed for indoor tanning.

• Wear Protective Eyewear: Shield your eyes from UV rays with provided eyewear.

• Follow Recommended Session Limits: Gradually increase tanning sessions to build a base tan and avoid overexposure.

• Moisturize: Keep skin hydrated for an even and long-lasting tan.


• Overuse Tanning Beds: Stick to recommended session frequencies to avoid skin damage.

• Neglect Skin Protection: Cover tattoos and use lip balm to protect lips during sessions.

• Combine Tanning Methods: Avoid indoor and outdoor tanning on the same day to prevent overexposure.



• Use Sunscreen: Apply broad-spectrum sunscreen suitable for your skin type and reapply as needed.

• Take Breaks: Avoid prolonged sun exposure and rest in the shade to reduce the risk of sunburn.

• Stay Hydrated: Counteract dehydration caused by sun exposure by drinking plenty of water.

• Protect Your Eyes: Wear sunglasses blocking UVA and UVB rays to prevent eye damage.


• Skip Sunscreen: Regularly apply and reapply sunscreen to prevent sunburn and skin damage.

• Tan During Peak Hours: Avoid intense UV rays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and opt for morning or late afternoon sessions.

• Ignore Warning Signs: Seek shade if your skin turns pink or feels hot to avoid sunburn.

• Underestimate Water Reflection: Be cautious around water, as it reflects UV rays, increasing exposure.


Red light therapy, embraced by Vegas Tan, offers non-UV alternative using low-level red and a near-infrared light. This stimulates cellular regeneration, boosts collagen, reduces fine lines, and promotes a youthful appearance without harmful UV exposure. Red-light therapy is particularly attractive to those with sensitive skin or those avoiding traditional tanning risks.

The choice between tanning methods depends on individual preferences, lifestyle, and health considerations. Vegas Tan provides a controlled option, outdoor sunbathing offers natural vitamin D, and red-light therapy presents non-UV skin rejuvenation. Whether basking in the controlled environment of a tanning salon, enjoying the outdoor sunshine, or embracing the power of red-light therapy, the path to a luminous Vegas tan is as diverse as the choices available.

For 13 years, J. Nicole has been operating as a cosmetologist in the state of Nevada, but her motivation for making people their most beautiful self is rooted deeply in her personal journey.


It never ceases to amaze how the most beautiful things can grow out of the most tumultuous of circumstances (similar to the flower lotus) evoking joy, and inspiring amazement to all who encounter them. As a child J. Nicole was bullied because of her hair. This experience would inspire her to start styling her own hair, and she quickly realized that she had a creative knack for styling hair that would not go unnoticed. So much so, that even her bullies started requesting her services. Before long, she was doing their hair (as well as their parent’s hair), and getting paid for it at the tender age of ten years old.

Currently, J. Nicole is a skilled and professional cosmetologist/barber, as well as an educator on hair care who styles all textures and types of hair. She has also designed a line of hair care products. “I realize that I can be creative using the person’s hair, as well as educating them on their hair, providing the information they don’t have on how to take care of their hair”, proclaims J. Nicole. Through her tireless work, J. Nicole is changing the narrative concerning what is considered “good hair”, while fostering the love that people feel towards themselves. Aside from being a hair care impresario, she is heavily committed to community involvement. J. Nicole founded a nonprofit called “So Amazing Kids” whose mission is to first, provide free hair care services to children who are in the foster care system. Secondly, she provides this sector with education on how to properly care for their hair. Furthermore, she provides mentorship (and scholarships) for those children who would like to pursue a career in the hair care service industry. A noble and worthy cause, indeed. She considers this her greatest achievement, due to the impact she’s having on these children’s lives.

Aside from the strides that she has made in her chosen trade, J. Nicole is also a parent, and an author. She’s written a book on parenting which is available on Amazon and Audible entitled “The Chaos Theory”. This work explores the

path into parenthood, and how it can surprise you. She examines what it can feel like when you are “on a winding road of emotions ranging from satisfaction and joy, to some not-so-pleasant feelings like anxiety and frustration”. Mixed emotions aside, it is her motivation to set a great foundation for her children. She wants them to know that anything is possible, as long as you have a vision. J. Nicole is the perfect personification of the concept that there are no limits in life, only those which you impose on yourself.

It is very important to note that anyone who supports J. Nicole and her undertakings is supporting a brand whose core values are paying it forward, promoting a sense of self- worth, and keeping integrity in everything you do. To get the full Hair by J. Nicole experience, you can book online at www. Also, you can find her on IG and Facebook at hairbyjnicole. If you are a business owner who wants to donate, a stylist that wants to be a part of the mission, or a foster parent who wants to sign up their kids for her nonprofit programs, visit for more information. MyVegas Magazine is proud to be a part of J. Nicole’s objective to bring hope, light, and beauty to the world, and we congratulate her on being one of the most exemplary businesses in Las Vegas. MV

Improve health, happiness & your body with simple workouts

As an online coach, I work from a desk 8 hours a day, 5 days a week!  Mostly, I am sitting in a chair, doing zoom consultations, creating meal and workout guides for clients, replying to email,s or writing articles for magazines or other businesses.

And let me be honest... it makes it easy to crash mid-day!

I used to drink more caffeine to get a quick pick me up until that started disrupting my sleep, which also affects brain fog, joy, cravings, and weight loss. So, if you want to improve your health, happiness, and body, then this switch-up will help you.

We all know  the importance of movement, so instead of reaching for coffee, start reaching for light workout bands and get a quick 5 or 10-minute walk in. Indoors or out! Doesn’t matter... just move! Workout bands are a great option for the office because they take up no space and you can feel the burn without getting sweaty.

Here is a quick and easy desk workout that can be done with or without bands:

• Chair squat (squat over your chair, allow your glutes to barely tap your chair then back up, repeat)

• Glute squeeze (you can do this while sitting, clench your glutes, hold for 3 seconds, release and repeat)

• Shoulder press (you can do this with or without bands)

• Bent over row (you can do this with or without bands)

Do each exercise 15 reps, 3 sets and then walk around your building so you can clear your mind, get some fresh air, and some extra energy. Even if it is only a quick walk to the water cooler. Water is another important tool to staying refreshed and alert through the day.

I’ll leave you with some extra office health tips, so you can truly thrive this year with your health and happiness!

• For breakfast, do a protein packed meal with a healthy fat instead of a sugary, overly processed muffin. Having protein and fats will help keep your blood sugar levels more stable through the day making it easier to stay focused and less hungry

• Pack a lunch with your favorite healthy meal so you aren’t tempted to order food

• Stop snacking and grazing all day, a lot of my clients who work in office’s struggle with this. A huge myth is eating every 3 hours will boost your metabolism but it actually doesn’t, especially for us ladies. It spikes our blood sugar levels which means you can’t be in fat burning mode because when insulin is spiked, it signals for storing fat versus burning it. It is better to stick with 2-4 solid meals a day, whichever fits your schedule best. Don’t stress about over eating all the time!

• If you eat a sugary snack or treat that someone brings in, don’t let this bring you down. Enjoy, refocus, and move forward with your day

• Stay on top of your water. Bring a large BPA-free water bottle so you can easily stay hydrated throughout the day, this can help you stay awake and even help with cravings as well as hunger.

I hope this helped you! For more tips, check out my IG where I offer easy-to-follow meal guides, workouts, and weight loss hacks! I look forward to helping you be the best you this year!  MV

As the largest and only non-profit hospice in Southern Nevada, we are often asked questions about what hospice is and how it can help someone at the end of life.

It’s important to understand that hospice is not a place, but rather a philosophy, that focuses on the well-being of the whole person. It is a journey of care for a patient. When a prognosis of a life-limiting illness is six months or less, it is time to consider hospice.


Have you or your loved one spent more time in and out of the hospital, than at home? Are you or your loved one struggling with getting out of bed and getting dressed daily because you are physically not able? Have you have considered looking into hospice care for support? If so, you are not alone. Understandably, people find this period stressful and unfamiliar with the new responsibilities. As overwhelming as it may seem, choosing hospice will be a wise choice. As your trusted partner on the journey of care, we bring compassion and hands-on support in the patients home during difficult days ahead.


We have been recognized by Modern Healthcare as one of the 100 Best Places to Work in the country nine times in the last decade. We value our colleagues, and that allows them to provide the highest standard of care to our community.


We are recognized as a national leader in hospice and palliative care, and have helped more than 80,000 patients since we opened our doors over forty years ago. It is our privilege to be part of our city’s rich history and to continue to care for all who need it.


Our clinical staff offers support 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our inter-disciplinary

teams provide care wherever someone calls home — private residences, assisted living centers, and nursing homes. We have two inpatient locations in the Las Vegas Valley –our 20-bed Swenson facility and our 18-bed Tenaya facility.


We raise funds to provide care to uninsured and underinsured members of our community and support needed programs and services such as meal delivery, complementary therapies, transportation, and families in need.


Nathan Adelson Hospice partners with patients and families to bring relief, comfort and dignity. Our vision is that no one should end the journey of life alone, afraid or in pain. MV

In our diverse culinary world, understanding how our bodies react to different foods is crucial. Recognizing and managing food allergies, often overlooked, stands as a cornerstone in maintaining health. Food allergy testing plays a significant role in this, helping us avoid harmful inflammatory reactions.


Food allergies often silently disrupt our body’s equilibrium, leading to sustained inflammation, which can result in various health issues like digestive problems and cardiovascular diseases. Numerous studies have emphasized the damaging effects of unchecked inflammation, underscoring the importance of identifying food allergies.


Early Detection and Timely Intervention Food allergy testing is a proactive strategy for health. It allows for early detection of allergies, enabling timely intervention and preventing minor reactions from escalating into serious health complications. This knowledge empowers individuals to take control of their health, acting before issues become severe.

Personalized Nutrition for Better Health

Understanding your body’s reactions helps in creating a personalized nutritional plan, aligning your diet with your physiological needs, and promoting a healthier, happier life. This tailored approach to nutrition ensures that you are eating foods that are beneficial to your unique body needs.

Preventing Chronic Diseases

Food allergy testing serves as a preventive measure against chronic diseases like irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, and certain cancers. Avoiding allergenic foods significantly reduces the risk of developing such ailments, contributing to long-term health.


Balanced Gut for Overall Well-being

A well-balanced gut is foundational to health. Addressing food allergies enhances digestion and nutrient absorption, fostering a robust gut microbiome, which is pivotal for overall well-being.

Strengthening the Immune System

The immune system is often compromised by food allergies. Testing helps individuals avoid allergenic foods, nurturing a stronger immune response and enhancing the body’s defense mechanisms against various diseases.

Looking Ahead: Integrating Testing into Healthcare

With the rise of global health issues, proactive health management, including food allergy testing, is not just beneficial but essential. This testing method promises a way towards comprehensive health and vitality.

Educating for Awareness

Educational initiatives focusing on the importance of food allergy testing are vital. They foster a culture of informed decision-making and awareness, encouraging individuals to manage their health proactively.

Incorporation into Healthcare Systems

Integrating food allergy testing into regular health check-ups establishes a systematic approach to combating the negative impacts of food allergies, offering a structured way to health management.

Unchecked food allergies present a silent yet potent threat to our health. Food allergy testing equips us with the knowledge to better understand our bodies, fostering a future of enhanced health and well-being. It is time to advocate for food allergy testing as an essential tool in our health journey.

At Summit Integrated Health, we aim to provide knowledge about personal food allergies, empowering you to formulate proactive health plans for a healthier, happier life. Embracing food allergy testing is a step towards understanding and proactive care for a brighter future. MV

At 68 years young, Dale Parkinson’s journey through life has been nothing short of a rollercoaster, but he remains an inspiration for those grappling with the challenges of time.

Known affectionately among his fitness peers as Mr. Buff, Dale has prioritized his health since he was a young adult. And when he did, it came all at once, in 1976 when the iconic movie “Rocky” was released. “I was a scrawny 20-year-old,” Dale recalls with a chuckle, “but something about watching Sylvester Stallone doing pushups (along with that incredible theme song) lit a fire deep inside me.” And so, armed with determination and a Rocky-inspired playlist, he started doing pushups—30, 40, 50, until he conquered a staggering thousand each night.

Dale’s fitness journey took an unexpected turn when the toughest kid from his high school, Dan Powell, became his lifelong best friend and mentor. Dan offered Dale a simple choice: believe in yourself or face a pummeling. Opting for the former, Dale found himself under the wing of a relentless motivator who propelled him to great heights.

In 1983, at 28, Dale competed and won the Grand Championship at the “Mr. Idaho” State Bodybuilding Championship. Fast forward to age 60, and Dale found himself grappling with the consequences of a lifetime dedicated to weightlifting. Surgeries, injuries, and health scares became short and life changing chapters of his story. Eight major surgeries, including shoulder and knee replacements, torn tendons, countless stem cell and cortisone injections for pain, and obesity—all served as formidable adversaries.

A stretch of inactivity from age 60 to 66 left Dale 60 pounds heavier. Yet, with the help of Dr. Graham Simpson, a guardian angel in the form of an anti-aging doctor, Dale gradually reclaimed his long-lost physique, reentering the world of training at the age of 66. The photo taken on his 68th birthday is a representation of his resurgence, as he adds, “Most people can’t believe I’m 68 with 10 grandkids!”

As the inspirational Mr. Buff, Dale imparts wisdom to fellow geriatric gym mates asking how he does it. His advice? “The way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time.” Start with a small goal for today and exceed it tomorrow. It’s the same philosophy that powered his journey from 30 pushups to a thousand.

Clint Eastwood says, “Don’t let the old man in.” Dale says, “I don’t even let him make it to my doorstep!”

Dale’s mantra are the sentiments of Rocky Balboa: “It’s not about how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.” In his words, he adds, “They say that Father Time is undefeated, and I suppose that’s true. But your health and fitness goal should be like Rocky Balboa’s: Go the distance and don’t get knocked out in the 3rd round, like so many do.”

Clint Eastwood says, “Don’t let the old man in.” Dale says, “I don’t even let him make it to my doorstep!” Dale Parkinson is proof that age is just a number, and the best is yet to come. Retired and residing in Las Vegas with his beautiful wife Brenda and their two dogs, Dale continues to inspire, proving that the only person capable of writing the final chapter is the one who refuses to stay down.

Real Autism Difference (RAD) is a nonprofit organization in Southern Nevada dedicated to providing services to those affected by autism in the greater Las Vegas area.

President of RAD, Ms. Radhika Shah, founded this initiative in 2018 for her 16th birthday. Her younger brother, Amar, has severe autism and was the main inspiration behind launching this organization. Since its launch over five years ago, RAD has successfully implemented afterschool, weekend, and summer care respite services for families affected by autism. Radhika spent years volunteering in Amar’s special education classroom and witnessed that many parents had few respite care options that would allow their children to be watched outside of school hours, making it nearly impossible for parents to work fulltime jobs without having care for their children. By being one of the first organizations

in Southern Nevada to address this shortage in respite care and implement respite services, RAD has made a profound impact on the lives of those affected by autism in the Las Vegas community.

RAD has also collaborated with many partnering organizations to provide services to those affected by other disabilities along with autism. Most recently, RAD collaborated with the Down Syndrome Organization of Southern Nevada to provide classes for those in the disability community. Uniquely, RAD offers a Resource Autism Directory on their website, which is a compiled list of all available resources in Southern Nevada, categorized by type of service and population it serves. Founder Radhika Shah witnessed the immense challenges that many families experienced in searching for resources to help their children. Autism Spectrum Disorder currently affects 1 in 36 individuals according to the latest report from the Centers of Disease Control, but each individual on the spectrum is unique, with some individuals being high-functioning while others are nonverbal and require 24-hour supervision. Because the needs of those on the spectrum are so unique, RAD implemented this Resource Autism Directory on their website, so parents can easily find the resources that cater towards their child’s specific needs.

RAD constantly receives requests to expand its program offerings, and RAD continues to bolster its fundraising efforts to raise money for their programs. RAD’s largest annual fundraiser, the RAD 5k Walk/Run, took place on April 6th, 2024. RAD also continues to collaborate with other community organizations to create new programs and reach as many people in the community as possible.

Dr. Paul Harlan Janda is the true embodiment of a caregiver, being the first and only Board-Certified Neurologist-Attorney in the State of Nevada. Dr. Janda graduated at the University of California at Berkeley as a double major in Psychology and Molecular and Cell Biology, following that he attended the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Through the balance between the two industries, Dr. Janda is fueled by helping people in the community, whether that be through providing, teaching, or giving back.

Las Vegas Neurology Center, where Dr. Janda practices along with fellow welltrained and Board-Certified Neurologists, provides inpatient and outpatient neurology services at numerous hospitals throughout the city. The Center continues ongoing research in stroke, vascular neurology, headache disorders, movement disorders, epilepsy, neuromuscular disorders, dementia, and cognitive disorders. Expanding his own knowledge and understanding of the latest improvements and advancements in neurology, Dr. Janda is able to provide each and every one of his patients with state of the art and up to date technology and guidelines.

A prominent enjoyment for Dr. Janda is giving back to his community. He exhibits

his love and care for the community by participating in charities, especially ones relating to disabilities and providing food. In the field of Neurology, he is a member of the American Headache Society, American Epilepsy Society, and Neocritical Care Society He also greatly enjoys providing patient education and student education whenever he has the opportunity. Being the Neurology Residency Program Director at Valley Hospital Medical Center, Dr. Janda cherishes his time with the neurology resident physicians, while preparing them to be board-certified neurologists.

Looking back, Dr. Janda always had fond memories of his best teachers, resulting in his love and passion for teaching. A great teacher can have a tremendous impact on his or her students, while also experiencing the fun of watching others learn and succeed. He is especially fond of his work as it involves lifelong learning and there is always something new

to learn, a great deal of his time expanding his education on medicine and life in general.

As a Neurologist-Attorney, you may be wondering how this incredible man can balance and continue to stay passionate in both industries. Dr. Janda greatly enjoys both medicine and law, mainly because both fields involve helping people. He loves to see the intersection and synergy between medicine and law. While he does not practice law directly, he uses his knowledge and experience in law in a teaching aspect. A vast majority of this hardworking doctor’s time is spent in the field of neurology, especially relating to teaching. His family, patient care, and teaching are the true passions that fuel the caregiver of Nevada, Dr. Paul Janda. MV

Star Hodge & Her Entrepreneurial Journey in the Medical Field

he intensive world of healthcare is home to one individual who has not only dedicated over two decades to nursing, but has also embarked on a transformative entrepreneurial journey. Meet Star Hodge, a seasoned nurse with 24 years of invaluable experience, who decided to redefine comfort in the medical profession by venturing into the world of entrepreneurship.

Star’s journey began with a simple realization – the importance of comfort during long hours in the medical field. Having spent the majority of her career donned

in uniforms, she intimately understood the need for comfortable attire that could withstand the demands of her job. This insight became the driving force behind her decision to enter the world of business.

Two years ago, Star took the plunge and launched her online scrub store, specializing in medical scrub uniforms and accessories. She curated a collection that prioritizes both comfort and func tionality, addressing the unique needs of healthcare professionals working tirelessly on the frontlines.

Did you know that according to some national polls, The State of Nevada is ranked 50th in the nation when it comes to mental health services?

Dr. Faisal Suba and Dr. Daniel Park, two of the founding members of Alliance Mental Health Specialists, envisioned changing this statistic when they were in their Psychiatric Residency program through the University of Nevada-School of Medicine. They often talked about opening a small practice together when they graduated, but neither of them ever imagined that their practice would grow to the size that it is today.

“We saw a need and wanted to be part of the solution,” said Dr. Suba. “We would constantly hear how long it was taking for patients to get in to see a psychiatrist. We hoped by opening a large practice, we would be

able to help some of these patients find consistent and compassionate care.”  Founded in 2016, Alliance Mental Health Specialists has grown from 3 psychiatrists in Las Vegas, to 29 Psychiatric providers with an office in Las Vegas and Reno. Their highly qualified team consists of Psychiatrists, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants.

In addition to outpatient care, Alliance Mental Health Specialists also provide services at inpatient psychiatric hospitals, Skilled Nursing Facilities, as well as psychiatric consult services at medical hospitals in Nevada. Dr. Park says, “By having a presence at various different levels of care, we are able to provide continuity of care.”

Both Dr. Suba and Dr. Park are thankful for the ability to serve their patients’ needs but they also believe that helping to educate future psychiatrists, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants is extremely important in order to continue to further improve access to quality mental health care in Nevada. In addition to seeing patients, a substantial amount of their time is spent mentoring, lecturing, and rounding with students.

“Being trusted with the development of a young mental health professional is an honor and a privilege that we don’t take lightly,” says Dr. Suba. “Teaching students ensures that we keep our knowledge up to date.  It’s also fulfilling knowing that these students will take what they learn from us and be able to help a countless number of people in the years to come. In Arabic, it is known as ‘Sadaqa Jaariah,’ which is a good act that is continuous even after you pass.”

“For me, Alliance is not just a business, it’s a family,” says Dr. Park. “We have known most of our providers since they were students or fellow residents. This familiarity and comfort level facilitates a supportive work environment.”

Dr. Suba and Dr. Park, along with their Partner, Dr. Ying-Chia Cheng, have worked tirelessly to provide high quality psychiatric care using evidence-based medicine. Through their efforts, they have earned the respect of patients, therapists, Doctors, and the community of Las Vegas.  MV

Jennifer Borja of the Borja Law, LLC is primarily focused on immigration and family laws, however, can assist you with many aspects of the law, including, but not limited to, personal injury, bankruptcy, and corporate law matters.

In her immigration practice, Jennifer has assisted clients from over 35 countries to obtain their US lawful permanent resident status or their US citizenship. Jennifer represents clients in removal/deportation proceedings and requests for relief so they may obtain legal status in the US. She is driven to assist clients who are survivors of child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, and other felonies to obtain U-visas or

charges may bear upon on one’s current or prospective employment, especially in the public sector. Today, Jennifer applies her criminal defense experience to analyze the legal ramifications of the criminal charges faced by her nonimmigrant and immigrant clients to avoid removal/deportation.

Jennifer graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Science, double major in Computer Science and Economics. She earned her Juris Doctorate from New York Law School. During law school, she served as a judicial extern to the Honorable Doris Ling-Cohan, Justice of the New York Supreme Court.

Cameron Law is changing the way that people view lawyers, one relationship at a time.

Daven Cameron, founder of Cameron Law, is here to help those who’ve been wrongfully hurt in an accident. In this exclusive interview with MYVEGAS, we learn about Daven’s commitment to the community and how his extensive knowledge becomes your greatest asset in the courtroom.

What do you love about living and working in Las Vegas?

Though not native to Vegas, I moved here as a teen and have witnessed its remarkable growth. The city’s diverse offerings, from Mt. Charleston’s snowy peaks to Red Rock’s nature hikes, and Lake Mead’s water-sports, are all within a 30-minute reach. With top-tier restaurants, entertainment, and professional sports teams, Vegas has firmly secured its place on the map. Its status as a melting pot, with people relocating from all corners of the globe, allows me to meet people from various walks of life.

As a Personal Injury Attorney in the country’s entertainment capital, there is no shortage of car accidents, falls, and various injuries. Nevada’s laws ensure injured victims receive proper justice. Leveraging my local network, we frequently refer clients to one another. In a city where reputation is crucial, maintaining integrity is incredibly important to me.

In your early career, you worked as an insurance agent, and today, you’re helping people fight insurance companies. How has your experience helped you get the upper hand as a Lawyer?

During my undergraduate studies, I worked full-time for a major insurance company, selling policies. Obtaining licenses required extensive classes and tests. This experience provided valuable insights into insurance intricacies and insurer’s obligations to their insureds, proving immensely beneficial in my legal career.

As a PI lawyer, I leverage my understanding of coverage and insurers’ obligations to ensure

accountability and maximize benefits for clients. My prior job experience enables me to quickly review policies and identify coverages, exclusions, and vulnerabilities. I’m able to translate complex information into layman’s terms for my clients and optimize all available insurance coverages.

Why did you open your own firm?

In my early legal career, I initially practiced business and civil litigation. However, as the firm dynamics shifted, I realized it wasn’t fulfilling for me long term. Exploring other areas, I found plaintiff personal injury law deeply rewarding.

At the start of the pandemic, I recognized my lack of control over my family’s financial security as an at-will employee. Determined to take control of my destiny, I saw owning my own firm as the solution. With ownership, I bear sole responsibility for success or failure.

Recognizing the negative stigma around PI lawyers, I founded Cameron Law with a focus on exceptional client service and results.

I started Cameron Law three years ago and have never looked back. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else with my career. I get to help people get better after an injury, help clients heal by connecting them with trustworthy doctors, fight for their rights, and I get to deliver compensation for their injuries. It’s the best of both worlds.

I’m passionate about representing my clients, building my firm, and constantly improving as a lawyer and business owner.

If you were to provide a single legal tip, what would it be?

Know your insurance coverage. In Nevada, insurers are required to offer every insured with an auto policy uninsured/underinsured (UM/UIM) motorist coverage. Due to the added premium, many overlook this crucial protection.

You can’t control whether others drive without insurance. Nor can you predict accidents or medical bills. However, you can control your own protection measures.

UM/UIM coverage comes into play when you get hit by someone with no insurance OR they do not have enough insurance to cover your medical bills and pain and suffering.

My advice to everyone is to add UM/UIM coverage. It adds protection for you and your family.

Bonus tip: If you’d be uneasy hearing something read aloud in court, don’t put it in writing!

Is there anything exciting on the horizon in 2024?

We’ve recently moved to a new office, off 215 and West Sunset. The process of building and designing was both enjoyable and stressful. We’re now in our own space, which I personally designed. We’re also ramping up our litigation practice, so expect more of me in court fighting for our clients. MV

Achieving success as a trial lawyer is no accident. For over 20 years, Brian Harris has been a Plaintiff’s trial lawyer with one goal in mind—consistently winning for his clients. Of course, over two decades, it hasn’t been easy.

However, with every challenge faced, Brian has been able to keep his focus steady. When asked how he has managed to build a successful law practice even through the recession, the pandemic, and other challenging times, Brian has a simple answer: anticipate, plan ahead, and always stay focused on what matters, the client. Over the course of his career, Brian has been part of large law firms with many partners. In 2008, he and his wife and current law partner, Heather Harris, decided they wanted to do things their own way and founded Harris & Harris Injury Lawyers.

When asked why he prefers to run a 3-lawyer practice, his answer is simple: accountability. “My priority is focusing on client care. When you have 3 lawyers in the firm, we all focus on getting the best result in each and every case. I work on every case for every client. Ultimately, the buck stops with me. That is a responsibility

I take incredibly seriously. I’m not satisfied until I know I’ve achieved the best result for every client.” When asked how Harris & Harris has continued to thrive during the current pandemic, Brian says, “No matter the challenge faced, or how we shift strategies to face them, our focus is always the same. We know the value of each case and the impact and challenges each client is facing as a result of their injuries. We fight to get the best possible result for every client. By making client satisfaction a central part of our mission, communicating closely with our clients (especially during difficult times), we are able to make sure their needs are being met. Nothing is more important to me as the managing partner.”

Communication is the key. As we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, and consider the future, Harris & Harris has found new ways to stay in touch with clients more easily and efficiently. By staying in closer contact with clients, it makes it easier

for them to understand exactly what is happening in their case. Says Brian, “By taking some of the lessons we’ve learned in the pandemic, and incorporating them into our long-term plans for the firm, we are able to ensure success for our clients. Only when we achieve the best outcome for our clients, can we achieve success for ourselves as lawyers. I am satisfied with nothing less than success.”

Brian K. Harris is the managing partner of Harris & Harris Injury Lawyers, a three-lawyer firm with a focus on excellent personal client representation and achieving the best possible result for each client in every case.

Nationally recognized as being the masters of their trade, The Draskovich Law Group in Las Vegas, NV, is distinguished in the field of Criminal Defense. Based on over 28 years of dedicated and knowledgeable representation, the firm has defended over 100 cases through trial with cutting-edge advocacy.

The Draskovich Law Group is led by founder and owner, Robert Draskovich, and Criminal Defense Attorney, W. Michael Horvath. Together, they are a team to be reckoned with, and a pair of MYVEGAS’ Top Lawyers of the Year.

Robert Draskovich began his practice in 1997. Possessing an industrious spirit, Mr. Draskovich has always been drawn to a trial practice. Similarly, W. Michael Horvath was

initially attracted to becoming a trial lawyer while working in a firm as a high school student; later, he found that The Draskovich Law Group was the perfect place to hone his skills. Although many criminal cases are negotiated, the firm believes that it is better to negotiate a case from a position of strength and knowledge, based upon solid trial preparation, than merely to negotiate a case “hat in hand” with a prosecutor suspecting that defense counsel is not prepared to prevail at trial.

Since their inception, The Draskovich Law Group has continuously delivered a

remarkable track record of results, while taking on many “out of the ordinary” cases. The Firm offers a wide range of criminal representation, including but not limited to federal crimes, sex crimes, murder, theft, and fraud. The Draskovich Law Group’s tenacity is unmatched, not only offering 28 years of trial experience to any case, but also applying strategies that are unheard of in most criminal law firms. These attorneys go the distance for their clients.

Being a boutique law firm, The Draskovich Law Group calls upon a qualified team of experts and provides unparalleled investigation of their cases. “We bring a substantial amount of experience, creativity, and the use of science into each client’s case,” states Draskovich. Being a trial lawyer is what some might call a meticulous endeavor. However, Draskovich and Horvath find no impediment to fighting every detail that they can.

Innovation and the art of advocacy are alive and well at The Draskovich Law Group. “We successfully defend cases year in and year out,” states Draskovich. “Our law firm fights hard for our clients, standing up for people when no one else will.” Robert Draskovich has earned many accolades, including being recognized by Super Lawyers every year since 2007; he is named in US News’ Best Lawyers of America; He has received an AV Preeminent rating from Martindale Hubble “the highest rating a lawyer can achieve”; and has been included in The Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers since 2011.

Upon meeting Draskovich and Horvath, they may joke and laugh with their easy-going, sarcastic dialogue, but these attorneys are as capable and serious as they come. MV

THE MISSION: To be a major law firm in the legal community; owned and staffed by professionals diverse in age, background, gender and ethnicity, committed to providing superior legal services to our clients and leadership to the community. The vision: To be a multicultural law firm serving the legal needs of the global community. These are the sentiments of Ivie McNeill Wyatt Purcell & Diggs, also known as IMW. When someone is considering hiring an attorney, the determining factor is almost always experience. Fortunately for their clients, IMW has over 70 years of handling everything from civil rights litigation to sports and entertainment law. IMW was founded in 1943, and first organized in Los Angeles by retired Superior Court Judge, Earl C. Broady, Sr. The firm became Ivie and McNeill in 1980 after Judge Charles R. Scarlett and Judge Robert L. Roberson, Jr. received their judicial appointments. Thereafter, the firm name was changed to Ivie McNeill & Wyatt in 1991 and became Ivie McNeill Wyatt Purcell & Diggs in 2019. IMW is a certified minority business enterprise. I had the pleasure of speaking with one of the partners of the firm, Attorney Rodney Diggs. The following is a Q and A from our conversation:

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT YOUR FIRM? Our firm is unique for many reasons. First, there aren’t many black owned law firms that are our size and that have been around as long as we have – since 1943. We are an institution with a national and international presence. Our firm is unique in that we are truly diverse. Our firm has also produced 6 judges.

For a small/midsize firm to produce that many judges is rare.


Excellence – we are committed to providing superior legal services to our clients and leadership in the community.


Employment and Civil Rights


What inspired you to practice law? I realized after I tore my hamstring running track at UCLA and my dreams of the Olympics would never be a reality, I needed to focus on a plan B. It was between law school and business school and I realized I could do more to make an

indelible impact on the world by being an attorney. It was actually while at Howard University School of Law during my 3L year and taking a trial advocacy class did it click that I wanted to be a litigator. It brought back that feeling of competitiveness I missed (being an athlete) and longed for. That was more of my inspiration to do litigation instead of transactional.

WHAT MAKES YOUR FIRM DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS? We are truly trial attorneys. Some firms advertise they are trial attorneys, but (we) are always engaged in trials and obtain favorable results for our clients. Also, we are truly diverse. I always say if a client is looking for diversity, you cannot get more diverse than our firm.



$25,000,000.00 unanimous verdict, all compensatory damages.

WHAT'S NEXT FOR YOUR FIRM? ANY PLANS FOR EXPANSION? We plan to expand to other jurisdictions (i.e. Atlanta, Houston/Dallas, DC) and expand our presence internationally.

Melissa Barry, the firm’s Owner and Lead Attorney, has one goal in mind: tackling your legal problems with ease.

We are pleased to introduce Melissa to our readers as one of our MYVEGAS Top 100 Lawyers of 2022.


My family moved here when I was a senior in high school. I attended college at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. After that I went back to Ohio for law school, but it was here that was my home so as soon as I completed law school I came back. I love the diversity and various cultures that you can find here. I love the world class entertainment, the weather, and the restaurants. Las Vegas is home.


I focus on criminal defense and estate planning, while also doing a significant amount of family law. Each of these areas of law are surprisingly related. My passion is helping people when they need it the most. These areas of law let me help people in ways that play to my strengths so I can be the best advocate for them.


I circle back to my passion to help people, and wherever I can do that is where I want to be. People come to me with a problem for me to solve for them. Whether the problem is a recent arrest or citation, a custody battle or divorce, or taking care of family members when they are not able to, I get to help them navigate the legal system and achieve their goals.


I love the competition. I always joke, or maybe not joke, that “I don’t come to play. I come to win.” And it’s true. But it’s not just about winning. I prepare thoroughly so that I know the case better than anyone else. It’s the challenge. As a trial lawyer, I must know the law of my case without having to research. I must actively listen to questions and answers and know the objections. I must preserve my client’s rights for appeal. A lot of that is done in the courtroom and takes a very specialized expertise.


My clients can expect the best. We represent our clients to the best of our ability- every single time. We also value the customer service aspect of business. We strive to make our clients feel like they have a friend walking them through the challenges they are facing. We know that when faced with any legal issue, knowledgeable, friendly, and caring support is necessary while getting results. We’re proud to offer an ease that can’t be found anywhere else.

Specializing in Personal Injury and Immigration law, Moulton’s firm stands out for its personalized legal services and unwavering commitment to client satisfaction.

Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Moulton’s passion for the law was evident from a young age. After earning her undergraduate degree in Environmental Science from York University, she attended Michigan State University for law school before eventually relocating to Las Vegas in 2014. Inspired by the ability of law to effect meaningful change, Moulton wanted to focus on areas where she could directly assist individuals, rather than corporations.

The decision to establish her own law firm stemmed from Moulton’s drive to provide a more personalized experience for her clients. Drawing from her years of experience at a high-volume law firm, she recognized the need for a boutique-style practice that prioritizes client services. At Meesha Moulton Law, clients are never just another case; they receive direct contact, personalized attention, and comprehensive oversight from Moulton herself.

With a deep understanding of the challenges faced by individuals in Personal Injury and Immigration matters, Moulton’s specialization is rooted in her own life experiences. Growing up with immigrant parents, she witnessed firsthand the profound impact immigration

Moulton’s commitment to her clients goes beyond legal expertise. She ensures that her clients feel supported and heard throughout their legal journey. From the initial intake to the final resolution, she and her team make themselves available for phone calls and meetings, providing regular updates and maintaining open lines of communication. Moulton believes that transparency and empathy are key to establishing strong attorney-client relationships and ensuring her clients’ peace of mind.

Balancing the demands of running a law firm with single motherhood is no small feat, but Moulton manages it with grace. Supported by a healthy co-parenting dynamic and a reliable team, she navigates the challenges of both worlds. Her daughter even gets to experience the world of law firsthand, occasionally joining Moulton at the office.

Looking ahead, Moulton has exciting plans for the future. Her firm will be moving to a new office space in the Axiom building in the Southwest area of Las Vegas, further solidifying her presence in the legal community and her dedication to serving her clients.

Heidari, the principal of the Heidari Law Group, was inspired to practice law because he wanted to have a positive impact on the rights and civil liberties of his clients. To understand what drives him, you have to consider the entire story. Like so many other exceptional people, attorney Sam Heidari started as an immigrant to the US. His passion was sparked by what he had seen happen to others around him as a boy. Growing up in a country which by his own admission had a justice system which pales in comparison to what we have here in the States, he felt a responsibility to help others at an early age.

Attorney Sam Heidari started out doing business litigation. However, this did not fulfill his urge to make a difference in the lives of individual citizens. The hallmark of their service is "competent and ethical lawyering." The people that Heidari Law Group services are injured, hurt, or had their personal rights infringed upon, and Sam Heidari feels that helping these people is his true calling.

The attorneys at Heidari Law Group are fighters, and there are several other factors that make them different from other law firms. First, they are not a trial-only firm. They are involved in the process from A to Z. Also, they are not a personal injury "mill." Firms like that get a

case and pass it off to another firm to handle the litigation if, and when they drop the ball. Not the Heidari Law Group. They take a case, and if it needs to be litigated, they handle the litigation from the drafts of the lawsuits all the way up to the final judgment after trial. This is a massive undertaking but they take the phrase "protecting your client's interest" very seriously. They pride themselves on the 3 D’s: Diligence, Determination, and Dedication. According to Sam Heidari, these three words encompass the core values of Heidari Law Group, P.C., in the courtroom, the conference room, and out in public.

For those looking to hire an attorney, Heidari advises that one should do their due diligence. "If the attorney is practicing in the field of personal injury and charges you a consultation fee, that's a red flag for me," states Heidari. While this approach isn't unethical, personal injury clients are often unable to work, dealing with expensive and accruing medical bills, and are under great psychological pressure as well. The last thing they need is to have to pay a consultation fee up front to speak to an attorney. It is this protective "watchdog" mind state and commitment to best practices that makes Heidari Law Group one of the fastest growing law firms in Nevada, with a track record of recovering millions for their clients.

So, what's next for Heidari Law Group? They have multiple trials starting in both Nevada and California, and their lawyers are already in that "full-court press" mind state. Also, they will continue to look towards expansion to be able to bring more of the competent, ethical representation from which they have become known.

The local Las Vegas Real Estate market is on fire and is set to be cooking for the next few years! With the onset of our national sports teams, the Vegas Golden Knights, the Las Vegas Raiders, and the Las Vegas Lights, this town is set to explode with real estate values. In this market, many properties are receiving multiple offers and same day deals which means homes are flying off the market. Many lenders are offering a grant program to assist you with the entire down payment, so if you thought you could never buy a house, a home is possible now!



Rick’s passion for living every day with purpose is deeply ingrained in all that he does. Throughout his life and career, his focus has been to transcend the challenges he experienced from his humble beginnings growing up in Oxnard, CA, and to make a meaningful impact on those who may have had similar obstacles in their environment.

He urges his fellow real estate agents in his daily interactions with them to stay focused on why they embarked on a career in the industry in the first place.

“We want to get up every day and be in charge of ourselves. Be able to empower ourselves and be able to make an impact on people’s lives. Never take it for granted. Put in that work because your time is precious.” Ruiz said.

Rick credits everything he is to his mother. He’s inspired by the leadership and the selflessness she exemplified every day to provide for her family. His passion for life and real estate stems from his experiences growing up in challenging environments and knowing how invaluable it is to be able to trust someone helping you search for one of your most dear assets – a safe, comfortable place to call home. Rick recalls an instance that had a profound effect on his interest in real estate. Instead of attending college away from home, Rick’s commitment to his mother and family led him to stay local and buy a home with her. The experience with the agent he worked with broadened his view of the importance of dedicated real estate professionals.

“We trusted him with my life savings and my mom’s credit…and he delivered. I remember the look on my mom’s face, the pride she had, the relief. Right then, I learned about impact, subtle but real impact. Dave took great care and responsibility for his job, knowing that he impacted our lives.”

Each of our journeys in life are unique, and Ruiz was not always certain where his path would take him. He pursued and earned his degree in finance, with the goal of becoming a financial advisor. However, once he graduated, the economy took a turn, which caused him to reevaluate his job prospects. At the same time, he was expecting his first child. So, he decided to teach high school economics instead. In the meantime, Rick applied to several graduate programs. From there, he took a leap of faith, left his home state and attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. His initial plan to stay for a couple of years and pursue real estate part-time during his studies quickly turned into something more. He soon fell in love with the real estate industry and the city. His parttime focus blossomed into a 60-hour a week commitment of learning and growing. Nearly two decades later, he is still here in the Valley helping his clients find their dream home. Rick offers some words of advice to those who may face adversity on their path to success.

“We get caught up in our goals but, if you have the “why” it’s huge. That will keep you grounded. Don’t let your day happen to you. You have to have command of your day.”

Although Rick made many of the right choices early on—earned a steady income, invested, and saved for lean times, the Great Recession brought uncertainty and a financial strain that was almost insurmountable. During this period, Ruiz suffered a lot of loss – his income, his investments, and his family. Being a successful 29-year-old with a lovely family, six houses, and two apartment buildings, disappeared during that tumultuous period. Even though his future looked bleak in that moment, he continued to stay focused and remembered the strong example that his mother set for him to persevere.

“Embrace the challenge. Know that you are going to wake up every day and play a tough game. There are going to be headwinds. If you’re not ready for it, it’s going to hurt but, be prepared for it and take your licks on the chin. We all do. I get rejected every single day. It’s part of the process,” said Ruiz to his colleagues in a recent sales meeting.

He knows the benefit that mentorship and inspiration can have on others and credits

some prominent leaders in the real estate industry for helping to grow his knowledge in this area and hone his skills. Rick’s dedication to sharing his wisdom with his colleagues and to help them achieve their goals is evident. He spends countless hours outside of serving his clients to leading coaching calls, team sales meetings, one-on-one mentoring sessions – whatever it takes to build long-lasting relationships and provide the best service to our communities.

Rick’s ultimate goal is to build a Boys and Girls Club, which provided a safe place for him and his friends to play sports and remain inspired to achieve their best. He is driven to lead by example and help others make their dreams a reality. He knows that the beauty of the struggle is to emerge on the other side of it with more clarity and wisdom to share with others and encourages us to pay it forward every day. MV

Here we are. It’s 2024. We’ve all been catapulted through so many issues, one leading to another. The masses have now locked arms, knowing that united we do stand and divided… well, you guessed it, we fall.

Let’s take a short review of “Airbnb,” aka Short Term Rentals (STR). Airbnb was born in 2007 when two hosts welcomed three guests to their San Francisco home and has since grown to over 5 million hosts who have welcomed over 1.5 billion guest arrivals across the globe.

This new vacation rental business was launched and homes were shut down due to people using them as “party houses.” This caused a commotion with neighbors, the city, and the county, to file a complaint to begin squashing these unwanted pests. And, in many cases, the complaints were valid and substantiated. Like any new business model, there can be massive growing pains.

Licensed as a realtor since 1988, my first client who wanted to buy into the short-term rental industry approached me in 2016. I did my due diligence, meeting with the city (not county yet), and understanding the requirements for licensing, and we found a couple of properties. However, at the core of me, this task felt incomplete. How can I help my client find a property, close on the sale, and send them off into the unknown? That’s not how I operate as a professional realtor and business person. We stopped the process and waited.

By 2018, my client contacted me to buy a short sale I listed and told me, “I have somebody who is managing my short-term rental and I’m doing great!” I immediately met with this person, a skilled expert at hosting, and we partnered up. I’m the realtor, he’s the STR host.

For the next several years I bought a couple of STRs and sold many, but I now had our legal advisors, my STR host, our renovation team, all booking tools in place, and stringent “Ground rules” written. There are strict consequences when any rule is violated. Everybody was successful.

Then, many were experiencing a wave of disturbing visits from the county and city.

Homes were being approached by code enforcement officers demanding information from guests. Heavy fines were being imposed. Some people expressed fines over $50K and the largest (I heard about) was $240K.

Many of the STR owners are retirees, small investment operators, and big investors. Due to the pressures being put on them as STR owners and hosts, a businesswoman named Jackie Flores (Founder), collaborated with Lous Koorndyk (Co-Founder) to form the Greater Las Vegas Short Term Rental Association (GLVSTRA) and began to invite other property owners and hosts to join in a synergistic movement to even the playing field for everyone.

I’m a strong supporter and volunteer of the Association, through fundraising and PR. In February 2023, Judge Jessica K. Peterson stated, “Clark County’s effort to comply with a new state law requiring regulation of short-term rentals is unconstitutionally vague and overbroad.”

The county was given permission to issue permits to their approved applicants, but the court’s ruling put the Clark County shortterm rental rules on ice.

The Association sued the county after commissioners passed an ordinance for licensing 2,850 units. GLVSTRA asked the court to declare the state and local laws unconstitutional.  Our owners are willing to work from a place of empathy and awareness, yet are unyielding when it comes to constitutional rights. We no longer are fighting 1 on 1, we are a collective 1300, going straight to the Supreme Courts.  To join the organization, we are asking all members to pay a $50 monthly fee. Packages are available if an owner is fighting fines that were given without proper consent.

We have discussed the county and its potential income from the permits. There are about 12,000 STRs. At $1500 each,

that is $18,000,000 to the county. We also disagree with the belief that STRs take away from the hotel’s profit potential. On the contrary, people have more money to spend to gamble, play, and visit local businesses.

This new industry is designed to help people financially grow and live, while wholeheartedly assisting the tourism industry.

For more information about STRs in Las Vegas, please contact Patty Linson, Life Realty. For further information about GLVSTRA, please contact Jackie Flores, founder.

Remember, change takes an open mind, a neutral and nonjudgmental stance, and a desire to be the solution, not the problem. MV

After a sluggish year for local home sales in 2023, Las Vegas REALTORS® statistics show sales have been bouncing back so far in 2024.

LVR reported a total of 2,426 existing local homes, condos and townhomes sold in February. Compared to February 2023, sales were up 10.1% for homes and up 17.8% for condos and townhomes.

According to LVR, home sales in Southern Nevada slowed down in 2023, which was the slowest year for existing local home sales since 2008. During 2023, LVR reported a total of 29,069 sales of existing local homes, condos and townhomes. That was down from 2022, when LVR reported 35,584 total sales. That followed a record year for existing local home sales in 2021, when LVR reported 50,010 total properties were sold.

As for prices, LVR reported that the median price of existing single-family homes sold in Southern Nevada through its Multiple Listing Service (MLS) during February was $460,000. That’s up 8.2% from $424,995 in February of 2023. Local home prices are still below the all-time record of $482,000 set in May of 2022.

The median price of local condos and townhomes sold in February was $283,000, up 11.0% from $255,000 in February 2023. That’s approaching the all-time high of $287,000 set in August of 2022.

By the end of February, LVR reported 3,471 single-family homes listed for sale without any sort of offer. That’s down 25.6% from one year earlier. Meanwhile, the 1,160 condos and townhomes listed without offers in February represent a 0.4% increase from one year earlier.

The sales pace in February equates to a local housing supply of just under two months. One year earlier, Southern Nevada had nearly a three-month housing supply.

A persistently tight housing supply and rising mortgage interest rates have been slowing down the housing market for months. But there are reasons for optimism in 2024, with national experts predicting that more homes will be available and sold this year than during 2023.

It’s encouraging to see that we’re selling more homes so far this year, even with the headwinds we’ve been facing in the housing market. Here’s hoping our national

experts are right in predicting that things will continue to pick up as we head into the spring and summer months, when we traditionally see sales increase.

In this section, we feature local churches, a comprehensive church directory, and inspiring personal testimonials and success stories from locals who have elevated their lives through their faith and relationship with God.



What was the happiest time of your life?

There was a study done by Princeton University1 to determine the answer to that question. They interviewed 23,000 people ages 17 to 85 and they identified two ages when happiness tends to peak. The first was 23, the age when your education is behind you and you are finally earning an income. It is a season that is full of optimism and hope about the future. The other was 69, the age when the stresses of raising a family and earning a living are behind you and there is optimism about retirement.

My guess is you are somewhere in between these two ages. So does that mean you are destined to be miserable until you finally retire? Not if you choose to change what you chase after. Happiness is based more on our circumstances, but joy and contentment

come from a deeper place. Consider the words from one of the greatest chapters in the Bible, Psalm 23:

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. 2

This is a picture of contentment. These words are born out of the life of King David, who experienced some of life’s highest highs and lowest lows. As a teenager, he killed a giant by the name of Goliath. He was made King and achieved enormous success. But, he also experienced some of life’s greatest heartbreaks. He lost a child after birth, lost the throne to a son who tried to kill him and had a tumultuous relationship with his children.

But in the midst of these circumstances, he writes, “The Lord is my shepherd.” He has

a personal relationship with his Heavenly Father: The Lord is my shepherd. David knows what it means to be a shepherd. He spent years watching sheep. However, David doesn’t write this psalm from the vantage point of a shepherd, he writes it from the perspective of the sheep. If the Lord is my shepherd, that means I am His sheep. That seems odd because sheep aren’t very bright. A few years ago in eastern Turkey, there was one sheep who went over a 50-foot cliff into a ravine and another 1,500 sheep followed him off the cliff. The first 400 of those sheep died, but the other 1,100 sheep survived because they landed on the pile of pillowy soft sheep.3 You would think that one of them would pause for a minute and say, “You know Eddie went over the cliff and never came back. Maybe I ought to reflect on that for a moment before I keep walking.” Sheep don’t have the best track record at making good decisions.

This isn’t a psalm about sheep. It’s about people. It’s about you and me. David reminds us that when you let the Lord be your shepherd; when you let God direct your path; that is when you lack nothing. That is where contentment is found.

It would be a few hundred years later when Jesus would say: “I am the good shepherd.” 4 (emphasis mine). Jesus is personifying Psalm 23: “You know that Psalm about the Lord being my shepherd? That’s me. I’m the good shepherd.”

So as we embark on a new year, what would it look like for you to make the Lord your shepherd? That is when you will find true contentment and refreshment for your soul.

Faith, often described as the cornerstone of spirituality, is a concept that transcends religion and encompasses a profound trust in something greater than oneself. Faith is a deeply personal and multifaceted conviction that shapes our worldview, guides our actions, and sustains us through life’s trials and triumphs.

But what exactly is faith? It’s more than a set of beliefs or rituals; rather, it’s a state of being – a steadfast confidence in the unseen and the unknown. Faith empowers us to navigate the uncertainties of life with courage and resilience, anchoring us in a sense of purpose and meaning.

How do you have faith? Or, how do you build faith?

While it may seem intangible, it is a quality that can be cultivated and nurtured through intentional practice and reflection. Here are some ways to foster and strengthen your faith:

1. Cultivate Trust: At its core, faith is about trusting in something beyond ourselves –whether it’s a higher power, the universe, or the inherent goodness of humanity. Cultivate trust by embracing uncertainty and surrendering control, knowing that there is a greater plan at work.

2. Nurture Spiritual Practices: Engage in spiritual practices that resonate with your beliefs, such as prayer, meditation, or acts of service. These actions can serve as anchors, providing moments of connection and clarity amidst the chaos of daily life.

3. Seek Inspiration: Surround yourself with sources of inspiration – whether it’s sacred texts, uplifting music, or the wisdom of spiritual teachers. Seek out experiences that nourish your soul and deepen your understanding of the divine.

4. Embrace Doubt: Paradoxically, faith often coexists with doubt. Embrace your doubts as opportunities for growth and exploration, rather than obstacles to belief. Allow yourself to question, wrestle, and ultimately emerge with a deeper, more nuanced understanding of your faith.

5. Find Community: Share your journey of faith with like-minded individuals who can offer support, guidance, and encouragement along the way. Whether it’s through religious gatherings, community service projects, or online forums, finding a sense of belonging can strengthen your faith immeasurably.

Faith is not a destination to be reached, but a journey of discovery and transformation. It is a lifelong pursuit – a dance between trust and doubt, certainty and uncertainty. By embracing the essence of belief and nurturing the seeds of faith within us, we open ourselves to a world of infinite possibility and profound connection. Take a leap of faith! MV

We get lost in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. It’s true. And it’s easy to overlook the profound lessons hidden in the simplest of things. Take, for instance, the mustard seed – a tiny, seemingly insignificant speck. Yet, in the teachings of Jesus, we find this humble seed serving as a powerful metaphor for the transformative nature of faith.

Consider for a moment the imagery Jesus paints: a mustard seed, small and unassuming, yet capable of growing into a mighty tree. It’s a reminder that faith, no matter how small it may seem, has the potential to bring about remarkable growth and change in our lives.

But how do we cultivate such faith in our own lives? How do we unleash its power to transform us from within? The answer lies in embracing a few key principles.

First and foremost, faith requires surrender – a willingness to let go of our doubts and fears, and to trust in something greater than ourselves. It’s about relinquishing control and allowing God’s plans to unfold in our lives, even when they don’t align with our own.

Moreover, faith demands perseverance. Just as the mustard seed must weather the storms of wind and weather before it can blossom into a tree, so too must we endure the trials and tribulations that life throws our

way. Yet, in the face of adversity, our faith serves as an anchor, grounding us in hope and guiding us through the darkest of times.

But perhaps most importantly, faith invites us to dream big – to envision a future filled with God’s abundance and blessings. When we dare to dream, we tap into the limitless power of God’s grace, enabling us to accomplish far more than we could ever imagine.

As the ups and downs of life continue, let us take heart in the wisdom of the mustard seed. Let us nurture our faith, however small it may seem, knowing that God can work miracles with even the tiniest of seeds. And as we journey forth in faith, may we be like the mustard tree – capable of big things. MV

When a major plumbing disaster happens, it can quickly become an EXTREME event! But fear not, Extreme Plumbing is now available in Las Vegas through Atlas Plumbing.

The technicians at Atlas Plumbing are certified in extreme services, such as wastewater diving repairs and manhole bungee replacement services. This team is prepared mentally and physically to navigate any risky or hazardous plumbing challenge in both residential and commercial settings.

Atlas Plumbing is the local industry leader in providing innovative solutions using the latest technology, equipment, and materials. Their team is committed to doing whatever it takes to get the job done right, no matter how tough the challenge. This culture is the company’s driving force, coupled with their sheer grit and determination to win against all odds and their knowledge and experience to back it up.

Extreme Plumbing services, such as trenchless pipeline repairs, have been available for many years, yet were just approved here in Clark County. These services, along with the latest technologies in the plumbing industry, can enhance your connected home network and allow for a less invasive means of plumbing repairs.

Atlas Plumbing offers several trenchless rehabilitation techniques including pipe bursting, descaling, and cure in-place pipe lining.

Pipe bursting is a method by which the existing pipe is split outward by a bursting tool

head (shark fin). This hydraulic expansion head is pulled through the existing pipeline while pulling the new pipe into its place.

Cure-in-place pipe lining is an innovative process that creates a long-term, structural pipe inside the existing host pipe. The host pipe is first prepared for the liner through a mechanical descaling service. Descaling is an aggressive mechanical sanding process, where high-speed, chain drill heads break down and smooth the inside diameter of the pipe. Then a fiberglass casing is saturated with a two-part epoxy resin and inserted into the existing compromised pipe. A secondary calibration tube (a balloon) will be inflated into the saturated liner until the line cures into the new pipe structure.

Atlas Plumbing also offers Extreme Bathroom Remodeling. It’s the latest craze in home improvement! Atlas always comes out ahead in the race to replace tubs or shower enclosures, often completing the job in just one day.

These exclusive shower wall systems are only offered through Atlas Plumbing. The wall panels are engineered using the most advanced materials on the market and are

made of a composite stone that mimics natural stone in both appearance and structure, without the cost or maintenance of real stone. Installation is fast and efficient with large stone panels of 7 feet or more, which utilize a grout-less application, resulting in seamless design patterns.

Choose from a wide range of colors, styles, and patterns to perfectly complement any decor. With endless options, including custom designs, indulge yourself in creating the ultimate bathing experience.

Atlas Plumbing can also elevate your home to the next level by integrating smart technology to digitally connect your plumbing fixtures and appliances. Now, control of your household plumbing is at your fingertips.

You will instantly recognize an Atlas Plumbing technician. They will arrive wearing a dapper uniform, which includes an impeccably placed bow tie. Atlas Plumbing only delivers the best of the best service and set the bar in all areas of the plumbing trade, delivering top-notch service wearing the best uniform! Now that’s EXTREME MV

Ron Quince (Ron Q) has become a man on a mission. The 40-year Las Vegas businessman, and father of two young daughters realized a few months ago that building a future for them should include a foundation of giving to the families in need around him. Quince, an accountant and entrepreneur, believes that his Filipino upbringing helped to shape a desire for giving.

“We have always taken care of each other in the Filipino community, but reaching farther out has brought me great joy,” says Quince. “I have worked very hard in my professional and family life. I also have a desire to help shape the world that my girls will grow up in,” and adds, “Seeing the results of giving to others in Southern Nevada has changed the way I look at my family, my profession, and the world around me.”

“but we were blessed to have Ron Quince, a great member of the community, step up and deliver thousands of dollars’ worth of turkeys to our foodbank. Plus, he stayed all day and handed them out. Nobody ever does that!”

Ron Quince’s first stop was at The City Impact Center, a community center with one of the largest food banks in Las Vegas. He was able to make last Thanksgiving Day a truly special one by providing whole turkeys with all the trimmings to hundreds of Las Vegas families.

In addition, he was involved in giving out snacks to elementary school kids at Arturo Cambeiro Elementary school in North Las Vegas. He has a passion for working tirelessly to support our troops and works with the USO to send our troops various packages during the holidays, as well as working with Troops with Paws, an organization that provides veterans with support dogs.

When asked about his political platform, Ron Q believes that climate change and abortion are issues that need to be discussed. On climate change Ron states, “I am not a climate change denier. I am a climate change realist. Of course, as a father, I am concerned for my children and my children’s children. We all want a world with clean energy and less carbon emissions. It is certainly our goal. But it is not realistic to support an all-electric world at present.” He goes on to say that we do not have the infrastructure or power grid to support going fully electric, and that the impact on Americans would be dramatic. “We would face frequent blackouts, brownouts, power outages, rising fuel costs, that would do more harm,” explains Ron. “Let’s help the environment with a process that works, not ‘woke’ wishful thinking. Let’s build a path to a better environment but continue to service our country with available resources while we work on these solutions.”

Regarding abortion, interestingly enough, Ron takes issue with his own party, but holds strong to his Catholic values as a way to navigate the troubled waters, which is the abortion rights issue. “Republicans failed to properly address this issue after Roe vs Wade was overturned,” submits Ron Q. “To be clear, as a Catholic, I am personally not in favor of abortion. However, as a father of two girls, I support women’s rights to have options, certainly in cases of rape, incest and the health of the mother.” Ron views the prospect of abortion up to the time of birth as unacceptable, but also believes that this is not just a women’s rights issue or something that women should be tasked with alone. “I also believe in accountability,” he says. “Men need to step up, and no one should use abortion as birth control. I support women, but I support babies as well. This is a conversation we must have.”

over politics and pass common sense legislation that will bring safety back to Nevada’s communities.” Among other things, he proposes dramatically lowering the threshold of grand larceny to $250 and revamping the current legal structure that is limiting both business owners and law enforcement in fighting retail crime. But, retail crime is just one component of Richard’s vision for reform in Carson City.

He meets with law enforcement officials, joins police ride-alongs, and speaks with community leaders about top issues they face. This leads Richard to advocate strongly for increasing law enforcement numbers statewide. “I’m knocking on doors, talking to the people and, just like me, they are fed up with the lack of common-sense leadership shown from our elected officials.” Richard promises a campaign that speaks to the people as a fellow concerned citizen, not a politician, and feels confident that his relatable approach will connect with the people of Senate District 5 and propel him to be

In addition to his proposals on crime and law enforcement, Richard is also passionate about parental rights, education reform, better economy, and healthcare access. He believes in a collaborative approach to governance, working closely with stakeholders from all walks of life to build consensus and drive progress. Richard’s candidacy represents a fresh perspective and a departure from politics as usual, offering voters a genuine alternative focused on results and accountability. MV

The Legends

estate near the Vegas Strip. John acquired the Legends Ranch in 1986 and built it out to be the most sought-after place for celebrations. Their 5 children were raised on the ranch in a 5,000 sq-ft home remodeled by John and Alex, with 24 horses in the barn, which has now been remodeled into a beautiful western event center.

John and Alex’s story began in June of 1963 at a Mormon church dance in Long Beach, CA. John, the entertainer and singer that night, was halfway out the door when his friend insisted that he come back and “see this girl.” With boldness, he approached her, interrupting her dance with another suitor. Little did they know, this encounter would set the stage for a lifelong partnership.

John Stuart is known for being the “Father” of the impersonation world, and founder of the iconic Vegas Show, “Legends in Concert.” John and Alex also founded Legends Ranch in Las Vegas, a wedding and entertainment venue and Creativity, passion, and love. These are the characteristics of the late Alex Stuart, a remarkable woman cherished by all who knew her. Alex’s journey through life was intricately intertwined with her beloved husband, John Stuart. Inseparable for 62 years, they crafted a legacy that continues to inspire to this day.

Within a mere two weeks, John and Alex found themselves deeply committed to each other’s hearts. Three months later, they were engaged, and a year and a half later they would be married.

On December 14, 1964, within the sacred halls of the Mormon temple in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, John and Alex exchanged vows and became husband and wife for time and eternity.

Before their ascent to Vegas stardom, John and Alex shared their love for entertainment at Knott’s Berry Farm, where John’s talents as a performer shined at the Bird Cage Theater. Within 4 months, John got Alex hired at the Bird Cage also. Alex would play the Heroin and John, the Hero, alongside the current actor and famous comic, Steve Martin.

Alex was a gifted dancer and performer, starting lessons at age 8. Even before marriage, she and John ran “Alexandra’s Studio of Dance” in Santa Ana, CA. Alex taught dance while John instructed tumbling. She also danced in some of John’s shows over the years.

Together, John and Alex made their mark on the Las Vegas entertainment scene for decades. They created “Legends in Concert”

of Las Vegas

She left behind a legacy that continues to shine brightly in the hearts of all who knew her.

on May 5, 1983, now known as John Stuart Day, a show that would go on to become the longest-running show in Vegas history. For 41 years, John and Alex produced shows in Las Vegas and throughout the world. At one time, they had 24 shows running, not only Legends, but other themed shows as well. Their work would earn John a star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars, in front of the Paris Casino.

John currently has three production shows at Planet Hollywood in the Miracle Mile Mall: Piano Man Tribute to Elton John + Billy Joel, The Jets, The Carpenters Legacy, and is opening soon Legendary Icons in Concert, The Real Tops and Temptations.

Alex’s generosity knew no bounds, as evidenced by her selfless acts of kindness, such as the time she rescued a homeless mother and son in a field living in a cardboard box. She put them in her white Rolls Royce and took them to the guest house at the ranch and let them live there until she could provide them with shelter, employment, and hope for a brighter future.

She left behind a legacy that continues to shine brightly in the hearts of all who knew her.

The star reveals that John and Alex are the original creators of the impersonation and tribute artist world. The shows recreated impersonation tribute artists of the superstars of yesterday and today. Alex paid the greatest tribute to the cast portraying tribute to the superstars. She also paid tribute to her husband, John, by paying tribute to all the various themed shows he did and is currently doing. In fact, Johnny and Alex are currently executives of the world’s largest tribute production company, Elite Success Talent Group.

John and Alex’s partnership extended far beyond the bright lights of the stage. Together, they raised a blended family of eleven children: five of their own, Missy, John Michael, Shane, Cory and David, and helped raise six others whom they nurtured and loved as their own. Alex always wanted to give herself to help other people, children, or adults. She was always willing to assist in any way she could. Her and John adopted their son, David, at age 7, in a school for special needs because he had spina bifida. He was born paralyzed from the waist down. He passed away at the Legends Ranch at age 42.

As Johnny became famous for creating the world-famous Legends in Concert, impersonation tributes to the superstars, his absolute favorite supporting star was his wife. Because Alex was not an impersonator, she was the real thing.

In loving memory of Alex Stuart, a great, marvelous, beautiful woman, loved by all, passed away on her son Cory’s birthday, February 27, 2024, of Dementia. She will be buried next to her mother, father, and one son, David. MV

DALE DAVIDSON: Las Vegas TV Personality

Dale Davidson was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio.

Sandy Wolff is a champion of survival and has proven that even pancreatic cancer can be beaten.

“You build your house of cards, carefully placing one card upon another hoping that the base is significant enough to withstand the toppling of the tiers.  If a card weakens or distresses or merely gives way for no apparent reason, the cards come tumbling down. No matter how you plan, when something tumbles or gives way it takes on a life of its own,” says Sandy.

This is how Sandy Wolff felt in January of 2023 when she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  You see, the pancreatic diagnosis was Sandy’s 4th cancer diagnosis.  She had already survived bile duct cancer, uterine cancer, and colon cancer over the course of 20 years.

Although the news was bleak, Sandy did not give up.  She believes, “It is up to us to determine the fate of the story.”  She did her best to navigate through the next steps, even though several institutions denied treatment.  Those that know Sandy will agree that she is just not a quitter.

By February, Sandy was admitted into a clinical trial at UCLA under the direction

of Dr. Zev Wainberg.  She received 5 types of chemotherapy in combination with immunotherapy, for a total of 6 months.  Dr. Wainberg’s protocol was an aggressive treatment designed to shrink the tumor in Sandy’s pancreas so that it would then be operable. At this time, the only known cure for pancreatic cancer is removal of the tumor. Sandy not only had great physicians, but long-time friends and an employer who made the schedule possible.

Working for Fletcher Jones, a small family-owned business, made it possible for Sandy to have a flexible work schedule during the height of her illness.  And a longtime friend, Johnny Ribeiro, owner of Quail Air Center, provided many of the flights to

UCLA. The aggressive therapy took its toll and Sandy saw notable physical therapist, Scott Pensivy of Prism PT to help her through the grueling process of rehabilitation. She also incorporated IV therapy into her regiment so she didn’t get too dehydrated during treatment.  Her well-being was literally treated day to day depending on how her system was reacting to the chemo and immunotherapy.  The clinical trial regiment was completed in June of 2023 and Sandy was scheduled for the Whipple surgery at UCLA.

In July of 2023, Dr. Timothy Donahue of UCLA performed a successful Whipple surgery replacing the artery and vein in Sandy’s pancreas with veins from her legs as well as removing the tumor.  Wolff was allowed to return to Las Vegas under the care of Oncologist, Dr. Karen Jacks of Comprehensive Cancer Centers, and her two daughters, Kristine Creel (Allan) and Dr. Shannon Michelson (Andy) after remaining in the hospital for 12 days.

“Major success is all too rare to be taken lightly,” says Sandy, grateful and surrounded by loving family members.

At 66, Wolff is now a 4-time cancer survivor, as she officially went into remission in November of 2023.  Sandy celebrated with her 4 grandchildren Cash and Allyn Marie Creel, and William and Charles Michelson.

According to Wolff, she is optimistic and follows her doctor’s orders to the letter.  It is her determined attitude and willingness to take on life that has led to her success, whether she is hiking in the Redrocks, skiing in the Sierra Nevada mountains, selling a Mercedes Benz or surviving cancer.

Hello Loren,

I have a 2016 Jeep with the start-stop feature. A few weeks ago, the engine began to run very rough, and the check engine light started flashing. The start-stop feature is no longer activating. The fuel mileage went way down. I went to a parts store to find out the codes. They tried to sell me spark plugs and ignition coils for over $350.00. They said that should fix it. I am not confident. My Jeep has 192,000 miles on it. What do you suggest?

Thank you, Flashing and shaking

Hello Flashing and shaking,

First, you should never operate a vehicle with a flashing check engine light. This can damage the catalytic converter, leading to added expenses. A flashing check engine light tells you the engine is misfiring. This will disable the start-stop function. The first step would be a compression test. If that checks out, then testing all secondary ignition components would be the next step. If that checks out, then test the fuel delivery system: injectors, fuel pump, etc. By now the engine oil may be fuel-contaminated. Throwing parts at a problem is not a good idea. Let me know how else I can help.

You never realize how important it is to have a great mechanic until something serious breaks on your car- or, worse, the oh-so ominous rattle sound begins. You know the type, the kind that makes you turn your radio volume up. The perfect mechanic to take on those mysterious sounds and rumbles, including, but not limited to, everything from electrical to engine/ transmission replacements, is right around the corner. For pretty much everything from bumper to bumper, just see My Mechanic! Led by owner, Bonnie Curtis, My Mechanic Auto Services is the neighborhood’s most trustworthy place for all your auto needs.

A woman owned business, Bonnie adds the much-needed feminine touch to a male dominated industry, which sets them miles apart. While she didn’t know much about the industry when she began, she took on the challenge with the assistance of her son who was a well versed and experienced technician. She soaked up the information like a sponge. They say a woman’s drive is a powerful thing, and Bonnie’s passion to master the car industry 8 years ago has led her to an incredible team, business, and a community of lifelong clients.

Bonnie and her team pride themselves on being the customers advocate. Along with the importance of having quality, high skilled

service technicians, it’s also important to Bonnie that her team translates problems and solutions in a way that the customer can understand. Being transparent and having respect for the customer is always the priority. She shares, “We are never after the quick buck. No way. We are hoping and looking to earn people’s trust for a long-term relationship.” While some might try to have their customers in and out, My Mechanics are efficient, thorough, and, if necessary, put their heads together to figure out the most puzzling issues.

Where some auto service companies lack, Bonnie and her team shine. Bonnie is confident in saying, “My service advisors have years experience and care about all concerns of their client.” My Mechanic’s reviews speak for themselves. Again, transparency at its finest!

In Vegas especially, car maintenance is so important. Getting everything you want in an auto repair shop, in one place, might have been challenging in the past. But My Mechanic provides talent, trust, and the time it takes to provide quality service. Bonnie would add to that, “Our honesty, customer service, humor, and down to earth mentality. And did I say honesty?” They are visible proof that a great business is run on great people. It has never been easier to trust My Mechanic!

When Staci Maione learned the severity and depth of human trafficking that runs through the moral fabric of the country, she realized something had to be done to create a solution. She realized that this issue touches the youngest people in our society.

Agape Rescues Children, otherwise known as ARC, founded by Staci Maione, harbors a grand vision - to establish holistic healing homes and aftercare facilities for children rescued from the clutches of trafficking. Maione’s journey began with a stark realization: the vulnerability of our society’s youth to the horrors of trafficking. “I discovered a vast number of young children are kidnapped or sold into trafficking, often at birth,” Maione revealed. “With all the research that I’ve done, I discovered there was a huge void in what happened to them after they were rescued. I wanted to create places for the young children to call home if they couldn’t go back to their families.”

While Staci’s final visions for ARC are massive projects, in the meantime, she knows the importance of starting on a grassroots level. She adds, “I believe education is key to spotting and ending child trafficking.” She began engaging with County commissioners’ meetings, getting involved with local politics, and more. Collaborating with her friend Susan Ross, Staci developed an educational manual an ARC educational manual, which teaches the signs to look for, how predators lure children, the grooming process, etc. Staci explains, “I basically teach people, ‘If you see something say something! This is what to look for’ It could save a child’s life.”

From schools to nail salons, Maione takes her message wherever ears are open. Yet, she adds, “My ultimate goal with the educational manual is to get it into schools. Teaching kids to look out for one another…,” expressing that education is key.

As she continues to find ways to make change, Maione joined forces with Tara Sheahan. Tara is the founder of Breathelab, the founder of Oniya, and is building the first healing center for ARC to help children. This powerful duo, as well as other compassionate souls, joined to create Ameliorate Your Life, a holistic healing company that provides techniques and tools for an inspired existence. “We’ve consolidated various healing practices onto one platform,” Maione explains. These healing classes include breath classes, yoga, meditation, nutrition, gardening and connecting with nature, all in the privacy of your own home. The best part? Staci says, “Proceeds from Ameliorate helps ARC, ultimately you’re helping to heal and finding your power, while you’re helping the children of ARC.”

Staci envisions the connection between ARC and Ameliorate, adding, “We want to create these healing homes to be based on Ameliorate.” A sanctuary where rescued children can get their heads strong and begin working at their holistic modalities.

While ARC’s monumental projects take shape behind the scenes, Maione’s vision remains her ultimate intention. She adds, “I’ve always believed we can do something to help humanity and people that are struggling… we all go through difficult times in life.” By creating initiatives and envisioning projects like hers, Staci is well on her way to making a real difference in the lives of children and people everywhere.

The hospitality industry is one that’s full of talkers … and that’s usually a really good thing. But business takes place quickly and dynamically. Sometimes there isn’t time for a lengthy discussion, a two-thousand-word email, or even a long goodbye. In such cases, clear and concise communication is more than just a desirable trait; it’s essential for success in business and career advancement. Skill in clarity and concision can streamline teamwork, improve productivity, enhance client relations, and foster a healthy workplace culture. Let’s take a (quick) look at how mastering the art of brevity can enhance your career development.

Save time with Precision

Every minute spent deciphering unclear messages is a minute lost in productivity. By being clear and concise in your communication, you reduce the time required to understand your message. This not only improves your personal productivity but also contributes to saving time for everyone. People will notice and that can lead to additional opportunities for you.

Develop Valuable Relationships

Clear and concise communication isn’t just important internally; it also plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy client or guest relationships. Clients appreciate straightforward, concise information that allows them to make informed decisions quickly. For example, rather than sending a lengthy email filled with jargon, a concise communicator would provide a summary of the key points. By mastering this skill, you can build

strong relationships with clients, which can lead to increased business opportunities and career growth.

Streamline Teamwork

Good communication skills are vital in any industry. They can enhance collaboration and teamwork and improve outcomes. When you communicate effectively, you eliminate misunderstandings that could potentially derail projects. By being concise, you ensure that your main point isn’t lost in a sea of words. For instance, instead of saying, “We need to possibly consider the idea of perhaps brainstorming some potential strategies for our upcoming project,” a concise communicator would say, “Let’s brainstorm strategies for our upcoming project.” This results in a more efficient team that works well together, boosting your value as a team player and enhancing your career prospects.

Positive Workplace Culture

Effective communication fosters a positive workplace culture. Leaders who promote open and clear communication create an environment where employees feel valued and heard. Clear and effective communication contributes positively, creating a ripple effect that can improve morale and productivity at your company.

So, to wrap it up in time for you to get back to work, concise communication is a powerful tool that can boost your career development. It saves time, fosters healthy client relations, supports effective teamwork, and contributes to a positive workplace culture. Invest time in honing your communication skills—everyone, including your career, will thank you. MV

Manifestation is a powerful force that can shape our lives and lead us to success and inner peace. Few understand this as deeply as Melissa Acob, known affectionately as Coach Mel, a Business Mindset and Energy Coach who has dedicated her life to helping others unlock their true potential.

Melissa’s journey to coaching began as a personal quest for answers during the 2020 pandemic lockdown. Immersing herself in mindset, energy, and manifestation programs, she discovered the importance of addressing the wounds of her inner child to manifest success and inner peace. Motivated by the possibility that others might be silently struggling with past trauma, she enrolled in a Master Life Coaching program and launched her business as a Master Life Coach.

Coach Mel’s coaching style is deeply influenced by her own experience in reprogramming her own mindset for success. After leaving her 6-figure corporate job of 23 years and diving into her business full-time, she faced a sudden halt in the opportunities that had initially motivated her decision. Doubts crept in as she questioned if she could build a successful business with limited savings. Taking a leap of faith, she invested $9,700 in a 90-day business program and set clear intentions to create a high-ticket program, clarify her niche, master lead generation, and make her investment back. Just three days before the program ended, she signed new clients amounting to $10,000 in revenue. This experience propelled her to give her business her all, leading to ongoing prosperity and unexpected opportunities.

Today, Coach Mel enjoys being a full-time Business Mindset and Energy Coach with a mission is to empower business owners and their team of employees to reprogram their mindsets and find both success and inner peace. Through her one-on-one coaching sessions, she witnesses remarkable transformations as individuals and teams overcome mindset blocks and achieve their goals. Her approach is grounded in the understanding that manifestation is not limited to specific moments but is constantly at work. Our thoughts, emotions, actions, and self-talk all contribute to the energy we attract and the experiences we encounter.

When working with Mel, clients can expect a transformative journey. It begins with a Free Strategy Zoom call, where deep connections are formed, and goals are explored. For those who are ready to level up their business, Coach Mel offers 3 customized programs. These programs, which offer one-on-one as well as team coaching, goes beyond simple business coaching, incorporating personal development and empowering clients to overcome limiting beliefs. With a tailored action plan and Coach Mel as their dedicated accountability partner, clients gain the tools and guidance needed to achieve their goals.

While manifestation often remains a mysterious concept, Coach Mel brings clarity and practicality to the process. Through her unique blend of mindset coaching, energy work, and personal development, she empowers individuals to tap into their true potential, manifest success, and find lasting inner peace. If you’re ready to transform your life and reach your goals, Coach Mel is the guiding light you’ve been searching for. MV

With a decade of special operations experience as an Army Green Beret, Randy’s commitment to excellence and passion for protecting others drive his mission to empower individuals, families, communities, and businesses through weapons safety, tactical proficiency, and home & personal defense training.

Randy’s journey began with his induction into the prestigious Green Berets, an elite group of highly trained soldiers specializing in unconventional warfare. Throughout his years of service, he tackled complex missions that demanded exceptional courage, adaptability, and strategic thinking.

Well, I know I did.

After COVID-19 had left my body tired and worn down, my usually active lifestyle had been reduced to never feeling fully rested. I couldn’t cope with that tired feeling all the time.

Istarted searching everywhere for that return of energy, from shots to natural energy patches. I needed that good solid natural energy boost and I needed it fast. A friend recommended Glutathione shots, but they began hurting my budget as well as my feelings. I wanted something that would give my active body the best rate of recovery.

One recommendation of Neumi Nutriswish, with its fast acting Glutathione blend, has

been the ultimate life saver for me. My energy soon returned quickly, as well as my rest. Since then, my workouts have been amazing, knowing that my body is getting everything that it needs to heal itself naturally.

Glutathione is the #1 antioxidant that you probably have never heard of, but you’ll never forget once you do. There is also a specifically formulated “Her” formula that fights problems associated with PMS &

Menopause. I found Neumi & my whole world has changed and several of my friends have too.

I’m Brian Roberts and I highly recommend that you try NEUMI & it’s formulation of Hydrostat Nano at or directly at MV
