Hi! My name is Kathy. I was born and raised in Shasta County and have spent my entire life in Cottonwood, California. I’m a small-town girl with a big heart, and I’ve always loved it here. In August 2015, I started my dream job at Win-River Resort & Casino as a Players Club Representative. Shortly after that, I got the opportunity to become a Players Club Supervisor. I took on that role and loved it for the past five years. In that position, I grew guest relationships that now benefit me in my current role as a Casino Host! I have continued building on guest contacts for the last 1 ½ years, embracing not only my job title but also getting the chance to make people’s day. I absolutely love creating relationships with guests! If you are in the area, I encourage you to stop in and meet the team!
I look forward to making your experience an amazing one!
My name is Jessica Dauphinee. I have worked as a Host here at Win-River Resort & Casino for the last seven years. I am from the Redding area, where I currently live with my husband and son. I enjoy helping people and making them smile. I started my career in the gaming industry in 2000, working for Win-River Resort & Casino in the Bingo department. I remained in that department for several years, attaining the position of the main banker. Then wanting to explore other casino areas, I moved to the Marketing department. My first job there was as a Players Club rep getting to know many of our long-term players and later becoming a supervisor. Some of my hobbies include dining in my favorite restaurants and going to the movies.
Hello, My name is Laura Thompson. I’m the Newest host at Win-River Resort and Casino. I was born in Sacramento, California but raised in Marysville, Washington, and then moved back to Redding, California. Like they always say, “you always find your way back home. My personal goal is to help my father and mother as much as possible. They have sacrificed so much for my siblings and me. If it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
As for my professional goals, I want to learn and grow more within the casino and go to college for criminal justice and psychology. I find the mind an exciting part of the human anatomy. One of my Accomplishments is to be allowed to grow and learn more within Win-River Resort & Casino as a Supervisor and now a host. I started as a players club representative, which has been one of the most significant opportunities I have been given. I am working and learning from my peers and managers how to be a better host and co-worker.
In my free time, I love to read books. My favorite genres are Horror, True Crime, Mythology, poetry, and science fiction about the brain. One of my favorite horror writers is Stephen King. I’m currently reading Greek mythology as well as Norse mythology. My all-time favorite poetry writer is Edger Allen Poe. Ben Carson was what got me so intrigued by the human brain. His story touched my heart and mind. Please feel free to come into our fantastic casino and meet our friendly team members and me. I guarantee you won’t regret joining the Win-River Resort and Casino Family!
