A True Vegas Girl

Terrisa Meeks, Freelance Writer and Photographer

  A  Native of Las  Vegas, Nevada

Sin City, the City of Neon--call it what you want, but I call Las Vegas my home. I was born and raised here, and so far I haven't found a good reason to move. Are you looking for someone who knows Las Vegas, Nevada? If so, then shoot me an e-mail. I'm a freelance writer, photographer, writing coach, and public speaker. I've written extensively about Las Vegas, from "I remember when" stories to current events. Currently, I'm the local expert for NileGuide's Las Vegas page. You can also visit my Vegas Girl blog to read about my unusual hometown.
