Welcome, and thank you for visiting, Because you have found this page means that you have some interest in the mysteries of the unconscious mind, and are ready to find even more enjoyment and success in life. I’m Nannette DiMascio, founder of The Home of NLP, based in Las Vegas, Nevada. I enjoy coaching executives and other leaders The executive leaders I coach are motivated to grow, learn and serve others in the best way possible. I help my clients go from great to awesome by using uncommon solutions My clients enjoy a fusion of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and metaphysical, Intuitive methods. My interest in the workings of the subconscious mind started at age nine when my older brother arrived home from Miami University Swim camp with a booklet on Psycho Cybernetics. After the first page I could not put it down. I was hooked on the workings of the fascinating world of the unconscious. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from UNLV, and completed a year of graduate studies in Marrriage and Family Therapy. UNLV is an excellent university. However, I found that even at the graduate level of Psychological studies, I was not given the tools to help people make lasting, significant change in their lives. During my studies I was in health supplement sales and then later I became a Real Estate agent. Both careers required the use of Psychology, yet after 15 years I wanted to go deeper, to really make a difference in people’s lives. I had heard about NLP from when I started in sales, but did not delve into it with passion until I attended two ENLP (Energy based NLP) seminars given by Art Giser. At that point I immersed myself in everything I could find about NLP. (I believe I have an obsessive-compulsive learning “disorder” that I enjoy immensely) I received certificaiton by a top NLP and coaching training company to learn the correct application and training methods involved. I received my NLP Master Practitioner, Master Coach and NLP Trainer’s certifications and have been working with this powerful system ever since. I work with leaders on the cutting edge because this is how my work can have a greater impact on the world. I spend my free time hiking in the beautiful areas around Las Vegas. My favorite place is anywhere out in Nature, especially with my sweetheart. On weekends we take the Jeep or the motorcycle to lovely places to enjoy the outdoors where he takes amazing photos. We enjoy cooking gourmet food, and may also be found at Grimaldi's enjoying a pizza. And I love cats. Nannette DiMascio Here are my credentials: Certified Master NLP Practitioner - ABNLP Certified NLP Trainer - ABNLP Certified Master Coach - ABNLP Primary Coach at Executive Career Hub Certified teacher and practitioner of Dr. Kam Yuen's Chinese Energetic Medicine Practitioner of E-NLP Intuitive healer BA Psychology, UNLV.

My formal education and training is in financial reporting, and having done articles for admission as a Chartered Accountant and a Registered Auditor in South Africa the bulk of my experience is in financial auditing and reporting. Subsequent to leaving articles I ventured into the commercial accounting field and eventually found myself consulting a small number of medium entities, mostly regarding their preparation for their annual audits. Those entities ranged from the South African branch of an international, multi-billion Dollar (US) budget NGO and the South African office of an intentional financial services and technology consultancy firm. I have a keen interest in writing, both fiction and non-fiction. Having written reports, business plans and budgetary motivations, I have experience in technical writing in the financial field. I am currently working on my own fictional novel, from which I am learning how to convert my technical writing experience into an easy to read, fictional style. I have a limited experience and exposure to web development (PHP and ASP.net) and software development (Visual Basic) but I view these fields more as a hobby than as a career choice. I am based in Cape Town, South Africa, and I am interested in local and international writing assignments that I can complete from home.

NAPW (National Association of Professional Women) Nominated Awardee, 2012-Present ? ASIP Membership, 2012-Present Research Experience ? Research Student Intern. Cancer Research Center. 06/2006-05/2008. Performed sterile techniques for numerous bacterial strain growth curve experiments, mainly helping projects with Salmonella typhimurium. I also developed knowledge and interest in Salmonella activation from dormancy, which led to a senior project on the evolutionary development of Salmonella strains from dormancy. I worked on this project under the guidance of Dr. Robert Kazmierczak and submitted my research findings for the Regional Intel Science fair and for the Junior academy of science at Jefferson City, MO and attended the JSEHS Science Symposium competition and received First place at the Intel Science Fair and receive an Honorary First place medal for outstanding presentation and innovative research project at the JSEHS Science Competition. ? Summer Research Intern. Seoul National Univ. College of Pharmacology. 05/2009-08/2009. Dr. Sunghoon Kim, an innovative researcher and Nobel-laureate in Korea was able to supervise me in my summer internship preceding my first year in college. Through my internship at his lab, I was exposed to his novel research project in the fields of Pharmaceutical research on cancer treatment by studying the protein domain complex and was able to master numerous molecular techniques such as protein extraction, yeast hybridization, transformation, western blotting to murine sample collection which helped contribute in data-collection for his project. I also revised and edited his manuscript drafts for publication. ? Roma Eisenstark Scholar. Cancer Research Center. 05/2011-08/2011. As a funded student intern and a research scholar, I continually worked under Dr. Abraham Eisenstark and Dr. Robert Kazmierczak on a bacterio-tumor therapeutic developmental project with a plant pathogen called Erwinia, and its phenotypic affinity and targeting abilities for PC- 3M prostate tumor cells. I had promising preliminary results during the summer which leads to my current post-baccalaureate research project; I identified a new possible vector strain for bacterio-tumor therapeutic usage by testing PC-3M tumor targeting efficiency rate with the three sub- set of Erwinia strains; carotovora, amylovora and herbicola. Amongst these three, Erwinia carotovora had the highest efficiency and was determined the best candidate strain for future bacterio-tumor therapeutic development studies. With these results and findings, I was able to receive the ABRCMS Travel Awards and presented my findings at the 2010 ABRCMS Conference as a Poster Presenter and also participated as a presenter at the LEAP symposium at Mount Holyoke College. ? ASIP Student Fellow. Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. 05/2011-08/2011. As an ASIP fellow, I worked under Harvard Medical School instructor and Physician, Dr. Rajan Dewar who is a Pathologist and a Researcher at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Under his supervision, I worked at the lab of Dr. Roya Khosravi-Far in Beth Israel Deaconess. I collected publishable manuscript data regarding bortezomib drug’s effect on chronic myeloid, acute myeloid and acute lymphoblastic leukemia cell line for further development into clinical trials for possible FDA approval in utilizing bortezomib (commercially known as gleevec ©) for acute myeloid and lymphoblastic leukemia treatments. I looked at changes in foxo3 transcription factor level on these cell types in vitro when treated with different dosages and conditions of bortezomib. In two month time-period, I identified optimal treatment conditions for each cell type when administered with bortezomib to determine optimal conditions that could lead to apoptosis thereby leading to inhibition of growth of leukemic cell. ? Senior Independent Project Student. Mount Holyoke College, 09/2011-05/2012. Under Dr. Paola Sacchetti, I spent two years in college working on an independent research project. I developed a thesis project in dopaminergic cell line by looking first in the Wnt/ß-catenin pathway. I developed a logical research plan and wrote a proposal on the project to answer the questions as to what specific roles Nurr1 and ß-catenin intracellularly had on the dopaminergic neuronal specification pathway, specifically in the Human neuroblastoma cell line, SK N AS. In a year, I determined the protein-protein interaction of Nurr1 and ß-catenin through Western blotting with our neuronal cell line to show that Nurr1 has an inhibitory role in the production of ß-catenin and thus playing a pivotal role in allowing a proliferating dopaminergic cell to start differentiating into a Dopamine cell. This was a significant discovery, novel to the SK N AS cell type, due to its potentiality in being used in Parkinson’s disease (PD) patient treatment use by manipulating undifferentiated dopaminergic cells to be transplanted into PD patients. [Post-Baccalaureate Research] ? Research Scholar. Cancer Research Center. 05/2012- Present A research scholar and have been able to follow-through with the Erwinia project from my internship in year 2010 and have developed the project plan with this project in which I used to apply for NIH RO3 grants for our research center.
