STEFANIE H. CLEMENT, ESQ.  

Attorney at Law, Specializing in Estate Planning Clement Law Offices (NV)

Stefanie shares advice on what to consider when you are looking to get your will, living will, health care power of attorney and additional legal considerations documented and legal. Talking about it and taking this step is not about being morbid but helping your family members. Stefanie also points out that so many people say that they don’t have an “estate” but if you have any money, property or other assets to your name, you have an estate.

Stefanie discusses what needs to consider in doing estate planning. It is more than just a will and deciding who gets what – but also who will be able to make health care decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitate, who will be guardian for your children (if both parents pass), and so much more. So many people don’t want to go to a lawyer and discuss this for many reasons. In part, thanks to Hollywood the term “billable hours” comes to mind. Stefanie shares some of the things you should ask when looking to get this all “legally” done and why a lawyer may not tell you how much it will cost over the phone.

JERRY D. BREWER, MD, MS Dermatologist, Division of Dermatologic Surgery Mayo Clinic  

Jerry shares the medical side of dermatology – the different forms of skin cancer vs aging (and age spots). Most of us didn’t have the benefit of sunscreen growing up, so are we destined to pay for the “sins of the past”? And can skin cancer really show up where the “sun doesn’t shine?

Dr. Jerry Brewer is a dermatologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and focuses on skin cancer – with a focus on melanoma and the surgical aspect of dealing with it. Dr. Brewer talks about a lot of startling details about melanoma and how is affects so many people, especially those of us who grew up in an era where sunscreen wasn’t necessarily a priority. We talked about vitamin D vs sunscreen, how easily melanoma is treated and curable is CAUGHT early and the “right” SPF to consider in various situations.  

KELLY VARGAS  

Skincare and Natural Healing Specialist Graduate New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics Haley Jenae Skincare and Bodywork

Kelly talks about the benefits of massage and how it can not only be great for self-care, but how she approaches it from a healing perspective. Some people who have never had a massage may not realize that is can be so much more than just a relaxing time for yourself but related to a healing. Kelly also share what the massage therapist needs to know from you the client. Something you may not think is relevant can be critical to share with your massage therapist.

Kelly addresses mostly about the benefit of massage as therapy and talk about how it can be a form of physical therapy. We address some of the things the client needs to know and disclose to the massage therapist that even people with experience with receiving a massage may not know. Did you know that if you are undergoing treatment for cancer, you want to get clearance from your physician before getting a massage? And what massage therapists think about getting naked! They aren’t “looking” you know.  

MARGARET GARCIA  

Certified Personal Trainer with ISSA/International Sports Sciences Association; CPA Certified; Certified Silver Sneakers Instructor; Certified LaBlast Dance Fitness Instructor

Margaret shares some of the misconceptions people often have about personal trainers (yelling and berating are not necessary) and how much equipment you need to be fit (not a lot, if any) and well as some of the benefits of being fit. This is something EVERYONE can achieve. Margaret Garcia is a personal trainer in the Albuquerque area. She works with people if all ages and abilities but especially with people who are tired of being tired.

Even if you are not looking for a personal trainer, Margaret shares so much great information about fitness.  

SHELLEY RAEL, MS, RDN  

Registered Dietitian Nutitionist ShelleyRael.com

Shelley talks about her favorite topic: nutrition and how to eat for a lifetime, not temporarily based on the time or year or current trends. She shares what foods we need to eat every day for optimal health and what foods should be “off-limits”. Hint: there aren’t any. But she will share with you the reason for that and what to do instead with the perceived unhealthy foods. Shelley is a nutrition expert and shares several misconception people tend to have about what a dietitian does. There are so many things she has that she finds it hard to keep track of anymore. Yes, she DOES eat pizza. Her ideal client is a woman who wants sustainable energy and is overwhelmed by all the information about diets and nutrition and weight loss. She just wants to feel good and quit feeling guilt. Shelley talks about weight and what that means in relation to HOW YOU FEEL and shares her past issue with Oreo’s. She is over it. She covers a lot in under 30 minutes. Nutrition is her passion and helping you feel good is also at the top of the list.
