The Atlantis Casino is where I began my leap in the hotel industry in 1991.  By 1996 I had worked my way up to The Atlantis Sales Department as a Coordinator.  By 1999 The Silver Legacy offered me a position as a Catering Coordinator and then a Sales Manager; I was there for almost two years.  The Silver Legacy is where I gained most of my Catering and Event Planning knowledge. 

In 2001 The Resort at Red Hawk opened their new Events Center and I was asked to manager their Events and Weddings.  I worked at Red Hawk for 10 years as The Catering Manager for Corporate Events, Weddings and Social Parties.  After ten years at Red Hawk it was time for a new chapter so I ventured to The Peppermill as a Catering Manager and am now a Senior Catering Manager. 

I have always enjoyed the excitement and challenges that come with event planning.  I love working with guests to achieve their dreams and make their vision come to life.  I can honestly say that I love my job and the people I work with.  It’s never dull and I learn something new each day.  I am so lucky to have a wonderful husband and daughter to support me and are always there for me.  They are flexible on those long event days, many emails and calls that come in at all hours.  Being a NACE member is a joy and an honor.  I look forward to exciting new monthly meetings.  Being able to network, reconnect and talk to colleagues and friends each month is rejuvenating and reminds me why I love the best hospitality crew in The Reno Tahoe Area.
