Why I love Mesquite

patrick and mariaI moved to Mesquite in the fall of 1992 from Fresno California looking for a new start. I found a job at the Peppermill Hotel/Casino and shortly after became a cocktail waitress. I love interacting with people and found myself looking forward to going to work each day to see what new customers had to say about themselves and greeting the familiar faces of the regulars.


I also met the love of my life, (my husband Patrick Flynn) at work in 1993 and we have been together for 23 years now. The Peppermill became the Oasis and after 15 years the Oasis closed and I found myself out of work, but not for very long because the Eureka Hotel/Casino hired me and it couldn’t have worked out any better. I absolutely love it at the Eureka and have made many friends with co-workers and customers, to top it off I was chosen as Employee of the Year for 2016 and the Eureka is where I plan to be for the rest of my working days.


I love to bowl and I play in two leagues a week – my husband is an avid golfer and also plays in two leagues each week. Mesquite is the perfect place for us.


We have a wonderful home that we love and we enjoy bringing friends and family to Mesquite to see us so we can show them why Mesquite is a great place to live. Those are some of the reasons why I love Mesquite.
