Get to know our awesome poker room staff with our new monthly Team Member Spotlights.
Meet Martha, one of our energetic and enigmatic game attendants who does her best to make sure that players and dealers have ample chips, that the room is neat and clean, and that guests are provided exceptional guest service. Martha has attracted the appreciation of and respect from everybody here in the poker room. Coworkers, supervisors, managers, and guests enjoy her positive demeanor and commitment to her work. For all these reasons, we are pleased to feature her in our very first Team Member Spotlight.
I got her to slow down for a minute, so I could catch up with her and find out a little more about this quite interesting and very friendly woman.
How long have you worked here at The Venetian?
Since February 2018
Where are you from, and what brought you to Las Vegas?
I grew up on a farm in Washington state and have lived in many places. Both my mother and sister live here in Las Vegas, and I have been visiting for years. Vegas is kind of like my backyard, so I moved here.
What is your favorite part of your job?
I love the activity, movement, and energy of the poker room. I also genuinely like the people I work with as well as our guests. I honestly enjoy coming to work every day.
Do you have any hobbies?
I love to read and go to the library and check out tons of books because I don’t want libraries to close. I also enjoy lap swimming, but it’s hard to find a pool where I can do this. I do get great exercise here at work, so I’m okay with that.
What is the most interesting thing about you?
I plan to retire to New York City.
Next time you see Martha out and about the poker room, be sure to say hi. That is, if you can catch her.
