Ron Harris—Young Living Essential Oils

Legacy is a word often bandied about.

Perry Sanders – Monarch Casino & Resort Inc.

The best casinos aren’t known for skimping on luxury amenities or unusual experiences, but how about massive showers that comfortably fit six to eight people and bathe them not just in water, but light and fragrance? “Well, our guests are going to love it,” says Perry Sanders, the corporate director, facilities, for the Atlantis Casino […]
