For Green Valley Ranch host, her job is her passion
Mary Beth Easter, executive casino host at Green Valley Ranch Resort & Casino, has found success by following her passions.
Although she spent the first part of her adult life being a stay-at-home mom and raising her sons, in 1990, she decided to re-enter the workforce. Although she had no casino work experience, she was hired as a change person at Excalibur. “I was eventually promoted to slot host, then slot host supervisor and then I was the first and only casino host for the property, eventually becoming an executive casino host,” said the New Jersey native.
After 17 years with Excalibur, Easter decided to take a position closer to home. Since 2006, she’s been the executive casino host for Green Valley Ranch—taking care of a long list of players during their stays. “I make dinner reservations, take my players to shows, make sure they have the best time,” she said. “I’m very passionate about it, even after all these years.”
This past May, Easter followed another passion—she participated in the Susan G. Komen Las Vegas Race for the Cure. Gathering sponsorships from her clients and bringing together her co-workers to participate, Easter was the top fundraiser in Nevada and her team was the top team in the race. It was another success Easter could be proud of. “For me—work, life—it doesn’t matter, I always want to help people. If I can make someone’s day, then that’s the best. I’m big on paying it forward.”
The TLC cocktail was created in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as part of Station Casinos’ annual Project Pink—a companywide initiative supporting the fight against breast cancer. Through the end of October, guests can order the specialty cocktail at all Station Casinos’ bars. The light, refreshing cocktail is mixed with Born & Bred vodka, Monin rose syrup, Aperol, sparkling rosé and fresh lemon juice.
