How did you start working in the nightlife or hospitality industry? Give a brief work history / background.  

I used to work in HR for SolarCity prior to the industry, then got tired of the 9-5/M-F so decided to mix it up.


Now that you are working in the industry, what is different about your lifestyle? 

Not having a weekend or holiday off anymore 🙁


What does a typical day at work look like for you and what is your “normal” schedule? 

Since I’m working at a few different resorts this year, right now it’s a little random!


How long does it take you to get ready for work?

An hour to two hours, sometimes more if I get distracted lol 


How many nights a week do you go out (to a club)? 

Maybe once, if that.  I tend to enjoy my nights in.


Who is your favorite DJ/performer in the Las Vegas market right now? 



What is your drink (alcoholic) of choice?

TEQUILA! On the rox (with lime) and/or shots of it.


What is your secret cure to a hangover? 

Eat 2x Taco Bell bean & cheese burritos with extra red sauce & cheese, take an ibuprofen, then slam a bunch of water before you go to bed! 


What was the longest timeframe you have stayed awake? When and why? 

Recently, was EDC.  It was my first time attending so I had to do at least one long night!


What do you enjoy most about working in the nightlife or hospitality industry in Las Vegas?

Getting discounts to eat at all the blast places! Food is the way to my heart haha


What is your least favorite part about working in the nightlife or hospitality industry in Las Vegas?

Always working weekends and holidays, it would be nice to throw a girl a “July 4th” bone once in a while! 


If you were not working in nightlife or hospitality, what would you be doing? 

Hopefully in a bikini traveling somewhere!


Do you have a mentor in the industry? If so, who? If not, who would you like to be mentored by? 

No mentor I can think of, nor no clue.


Craziest or most memorable experience working in the nightlife or hospitality industry in Las Vegas? 

There definitely are a few I can think of but by far my most treasurable was being able to go to Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals and cheer on our Golden Knights in person. Such a memorable experience
