I started my casino career as an EMT/Security officer on December 26, 1994 when the Miss Marquette Riverboat Casino opened its doors. After working as an officer, I became a Security Supervisor/EMT Coordinator for 18 Years. When the opportunity arose, I started in the Marketing Department as a Casino Host for the past 8 years to date. Prior to joining casino business in 1994, I was born and raised in the rural Prairie du Chien, WI area on a small family farm, where we raised Beef, Hogs, and had a Dairy operation. I still reside in the rural Prairie du Chien area, on a small acreage with my partner of 7 years, and our dog, Pookie. In my “spare” time I enjoy riding my Harley Davidson Motorcycle, and going camping at area campgrounds. I have also obtained my Private Pilot’s License in 2011, and fly’s a single engine aircraft out of the local airport for personal enjoyment.

Having been born and raised in the Prairie du Chien, WI area I have enjoyed my 26-year career at the Casino Queen Marquette. I started my career when the Miss Marquette Riverboat Casino opened its doors as a table games dealer. Eventually I worked my way to an assistant table games shift manager before making the change to Casino host in 2002. I live on a 40-acre farm where I now enjoy being with my fur babies including four dogs, three cats, and two horses. Also in my spare time, I love to be in the outdoors camping, riding UTVs or traveling out west. Most of all, my favorite thing to do is spend time with my children, two daughters and a son along with my seven grandchildren.

I grew up in Farmersburg Iowa, a small town surrounded by dairy farms and cornfields. I have an AA in Human Services and 30 years of customer service experience from working in my parents’ 3 businesses at a young age. I have been working for Casino Queen for 6 ½ years. In 2014 I started as a bar tender on the Casino floor serving drinks to guests as they played their favorite games. Within a couple weeks I transferred to the Marketing Department accepting a position as a VIP Rep. In 2015, I took a promotion to Marketing Sales Representative and in 2016 I took another promotion, this time to Marketing Supervisor. I am married and the proud mother of a son and 3 daughters and step mother to 5 sons and 3 daughters. I love watching our youngest 3 girls play basketball, spending time with family, exploring nature, being creative, and traveling.
