Faces of Weston with Jackie Bruder of Mended Minds
Posted On March 26, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Did you know that an estimated 8% of American have suffered at some time from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD.  To put that in perspective, that’s over 24 million Americans which is more than the population of Florida.  Those rates become even more alarming for first responders.  There are estimates of up to 37% for PTSD among firefighters.

With PTSD having such an impact on our community of Weston; we wanted to learn more.  This month we sat down with Jackie Bruder; who has a lifetime of experience in the fire service industry and now helps people who struggle with PTSD.  We will learn about her company, her background, what she is passionate about and why she chose Lakeside Executive Suites

Tell us about your company and what you do?

Mended Minds is state of the art technology that helps persons with a multitude of ailments like PTSD, TBI (Trauma Brain Injury) Concussion syndrome, Depression, Anxiety, Migraines, Insomnia, ADD/ADHD, & persons on the Autism spectrum. 

Various studies have shown a common thread between a neurological disorder or dysfunction and increased levels of delta brainwave activity.  This increased delta wave activity causes a release of chemicals and hormones which keep our bodies and minds in a constant state of fight or flight.  Some people live in a constant state of fight or flight for years, even some since birth, which can lead to years of pain and misery for the patient and their family.  Most modern treatment modalities are only treating symptoms not the core issue.

The Mended Minds team can make a difference in your life by using a full approach, focusing on mind, body, and lifestyle.  Mended Minds uses The IASIS Micro Current Neurofeedback System to help reboot your brain and restore its natural state of being, which has been shown to be over 85% effective in reducing the symptoms associated with these neurological disorders.

How did you get started in your industry? 

Prior to opening Mended Minds, I spent the past 30 years in the fire service as a firefighter paramedic with Miami Dade Fire Rescue.  I spent considerable amount of time watching human suffering, including those of my fellow Firefighters.  Watching children lose their parents, parents lose their children…it changes you, and sometimes those changes don’t fade.  You also have the opportunity to save lives in ways you never imagined possible.  Delivering babies, reviving people from plane crashes, diving into a canal at night with SCUBA gear to pull out a mom while her child watched on the shoreline.  So after I retired from the fire department, life seemed a bit slow, empty…that is where Mended Minds came in.  A way of helping our own, the firefighters who are suffering from PTSD, helping people in ways we could not help before.  Giving back in a whole new way.

What is something about your business that most people do not know? 

Most people know nothing about our business!  Though a form of the technology was developed 50 years ago, our technology is presently the only one of its kind that has image based evidence of its success.  Presently, after treating military personnel with severe PTSD, the federal government has given the founder of our system (IASIS) a multi-million dollar grant with the University of South California to document the changes to the brain using a MEG.  A MEG lab allows visual changes in the brain to be documented in real time, visually..during the session. 

Where do you see your business in 5 years?

Our goal is to open offices all over the state of Florida to give access to those in need.

Tell me about yourself?

I come from a big family f six brothers and one sister.  I am married with 4 children and a houseful of pets.  We live in Davie, horse country, where everyone knows each other and people actually help their neighbors.  We ride around in golf carts and enjoy our kids playing together.  I love people and animals and spend most of my time with one or the other!

Other than work, what are you passionate about?

I’m passionate about raising our children to be independent, thoughtful, considerate, humble givers.  In a world that seems to lean toward the negative…I would like them to sway toward the positive.  To recognize suffering and be a part of the solution.  To give less than they take and appreciate the beauty of our planet.

What types of activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?

I love verything outdoors including water skiing, scuba diving, fishing, snow skiing, and long walks on the beach.

Why did you choose Lakeside and how has working here helped your business?

The people..hands down is the main reason.  Everyone is extremely friendly and happy to help at Lakeside Executive Suites.  I love the way it has open spaces to work and plenty of light coming in from the outdoors.  Last, but not least….location, location, location..it’s extremely easy for our patients to come off the expressway to find us!

Faces of Weston with Samuel Rubert
Posted On February 19, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Did you know that there is a field in Alcohol & Beverage Law?  Neither did we until Samuel Rubert joined Lakeside.  We had the pleasure of sitting down with him and learning more about his unique business.  Samuel Rubert Law is a full-service law firm specializing in the alcoholic beverage industry.

They represent industry members, restaurants, bars, hotels, liquor stores, brewers, distillers, wineries, and wholesalers in all of their legal needs.  They manage transactions, including purchases and sales of business and assets, stock sales, leasing, and coordinate financing for our clients.  They represent them in obtaining all of the necessary licenses and permits to operate an alcoholic beverage business, including federal, state, and local licensing.  And when their clients need it, they aid in litigation with the regulating agencies (administrative litigation) as well as commercial litigation over contracts.

Samuel has an interesting journey into law and the alcoholic beverage industry.  After graduating from Columbia University with a bachelor’s degree in Math and Religion, he enrolled in culinary school at the French Culinary Institute in NYC.  “I wanted to explore the field after working as a bar back and bartender in college.”

After graduating, he began working at a 3-starred restaurant as a line cook.  Although he fell in love with the industry, working nights, weekends and holidays was not appealing.  So, he made the decision to enroll in law school at the University of Miami.  “I was hoping to be a ‘restaurant lawyer,’ not knowing if such a thing existed and I was fortunate to find a lawyer to mentor me, and the rest is history,” Samuel recalls. 

When asked what is something most people don’t know about your industry, Samuel laughed and said, “that the alcoholic beverage industry even exists”.  He continued, “most people don’t even think that there are Alcoholic Beverage Law attorneys.  Most people think attorneys spend all day in court or on real estate transactions, but when you stop to think about the fact that there are TWO (2) Constitutional Amendments relating to alcohol and counting all of the alcoholic beverage outlets you pass on your way to work every day, you start to realize how heavily regulated and widespread the industry is.  These businesses have unique and particular needs that vary, sometimes slightly and sometimes greatly, from most other businesses, and we provide the insight and expertise they require.”  

Samuel stays busy expanding his client base further throughout the state and country; but also finds time to spend with his family.  He enjoys traveling with his wife and daughters and opening up his daughters’ eyes to what a big world we live in with endless possibilities.

He also enjoys cooking, especially ‘low and slow’ barbecue, middle eastern food, and pasta.  “I also enjoy riding my bike to burn off all of those delicious calories,” Samuel adds.

Lakeside Executive Suites has been a great home for Samuel Rubert Law due to its proximity to his house, major roadways and reasonable pricing.  “I have stayed (and I love Lakeside) because of the people that work here (both staff and other tenants).”  Samuel continues, “I have had offices in other shared spaces, and this is by far the best.  The camaraderie, events, and value are as good as I have been around.  While I hope to grow my business, I hope I never outgrow Lakeside.”

Faces of Weston with Zeev Fragachan
Posted On January 23, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

This month, we were excited to sit down with our member and COO of Dynamic Integrated Security, Zeev Fragachan, and learn more about him and his business.  Dynamic Integrated Security provides the architectural and engineering resources necessary to develop programs needed for optimal protection. Their expertise includes: workplace violence prevention; electronic systems design; access entry control; closed circuit television; communications and control; organization, policy and procedures; guard force development; executive protection; expert witness testimony and consulting; disaster planning and emergency preparedness; and critical incident management.

Dynamic Integrated Security assists all of its clients in the development of customized cutting-edge security systems and programs to enhance protection. Too often a security system’s problems are only realized after a situation has occurred, but Dynamic Integrated Security’s approach is to conduct an analysis to identify the components that may cause future complications.

Zeev breaks it down by saying, “Essentially, we integrated the human side of security and combined it with the most advanced technology and developed our own software that allows us to customize our solutions for our clients.”

Many people in this field have interesting backgrounds and Zeev is no different.  He started in the Israel Defense Force and served for six years on a special force’s unit.  Then he moved to South America to work as a military advisor promoting Israeli defense industries before moving into the private sector.  From there he was a security advisor for Nestle, Four Seasons International, Amway, Johnson & Johnson and Wyeth Laboratories.

We asked Zeev what made his security firm stand out from his competitors.  “We are the only security company in the state of Florida that assigned body cameras as a standard issue to all of our employees.” He continued, “we also operate a fleet of vehicles equipped with network video recording, audio, GPS and remote data transmission in real time.

Dynamic Integrated Security is excited about their future.  The company is putting forth an aggressive marketing campaign with the goal to double in size.  Over the next five years, they plan to consolidate their share of the market by including new government clients while also pursuing new accounts.  Additionally, they are planning to invigorate the security market with the launch of new security products aimed at the corporate market.

Originally from Venezuela, Zeev moved to Israel when he was 17.  He credits his time in the military with his success today.  “I was very fortunate to serve in the Israeli military and learn my trade from the very best; especially as it relates to adapting to a changing environment.”  He continued, “I am part of an industry where the key element is adaptation.  Security firms have to adapt for the new realities of the market and the debut of new technologies.  Our ability to adapt, our specialization and our professional approach will be essential to compete in the market.”

When not working, Zeev enjoys volunteering with his wife, Jhonelba, at the Jewish Federation of Broward County on various charities; especially ones that involve new Jewish immigrants.  He also covets his family time with his daughter Rebecca and son David.  When he has free time to himself; he escapes to some competitive shooting. 

With the goal of expansion, choosing the right office space was essential.  He was introduced to Lakeside Executive Suites from a friend while working from a Regus location.  Zeev says moving to Lakeside was a great decision.  “Ysel and her team are the best, the location is convenient, clean, modern and the neighbors are great people,”

To learn more about Dynamic Integrated Security; you can visit their website.  You can also follow them on Facebook or connect with Zeev on LinkedIn.
