The Distinguished Women in Nevada series was established in 1989. With the encouragement of friends, family and a handful of prominent women in the community, this publication was born. Through the nomination process I profiled over 200 women in 50 professions and acknowledged their greatest achievements. My focus was to highlight these women’s success in business and philanthropy. DWN is the only hard cover pictorial / biographical directory in the state.. It has been 25 years now and I am so proud to see this next generation grow in all fields of endeavor. Through the years, the Distinguished Women series has documented history, ground breaking events & profiled 1000’s of women in Nevada. I want to say thank you to all the incredible women and may we see 25 more years of strength, unity, and passion.
