Nannette Melamed


A Las Vegas resident for 12 years, Nannette and her husband moved to Las Vegas on an unlikely adventure, but their love for the community kept them here. Nannette was born and raised in Georgia and graduated from Auburn University with degrees in Public Relations and Journalism. Now the mother of two noisy little boys, Nannette enjoys sharing the beauty of Las Vegas with local and visiting families through Vegas Family Guide. In addition to her children and husband, Nannette also shares her home with an always-increasing number of animals, including two dogs, a pot-bellied pig, a desert tortoise, two sulcata tortoises, and a hedgehog. Every day is an adventure.
