Grand Biloxi Casino Host

AmieJo Travis

I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but I was raised in Waveland, Mississippi. I graduated from Bay High in Bay Saint Louis in 1988. I have 4 nephews, 2 great nephews and a spoiled Shi Tzu named Bubblez. I started out as a front desk clerk at the Harrah's Gulf Coast in 1998. In 1999 I moved to VIP Services until I became a host in 2011. I love to interact and form relationships with the guests. I feel that becoming a Hospitality Host was one of the best things that has happened to me in my career. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my family. Please contact me at 228-224-4871 or amtravis@harrahs.com and I would be happy to assist you.

We love dining out and spending time with family and friends and watching golf and football. The greatest asset of being a host is the warm and meaningful relationships I have built with my guests.

Jason West

Thanks for stopping by! My name is Jason West, and I am a Senior Executive Host here at Harrah's Gulf Coast. This year marks my 13th year with the company, with 11 of those being in Casino Marketing. Prior to joining the team at Harrah's Gulf Coast, I attended the University of Southern Mississippi and obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Hospitality Management. Originally planning to enter into the world of hotel management, I was quickly lured by the action and fast paced environment created by the casino. This position allows me to meet new people daily, and build lasting friendships for years to come. When I am away from the office I enjoy spending time with my family, hunting, fishing, and watching the New Orleans Saints! Once again, thanks for stopping by! Please let me know if I can be of assistance in planning your next trip to any of our Caesars properties. You can contact me at 228-224-4357 or jwest@harrahs.com and I would be happy to assist you.

Hi! I was born in Vietnam and came to the United States in 1975. I have 4 kids and love traveling and spending time with my family. After having 4 kids, I finally had to go back to school, where I earmed an MBA, with a concentration in Marketing. I started out as an Executive Host in 1997 and worked my way up to Director of Marketing. I have worked in many markets, including Shreveport/Bossier City, Amelia and St. Maarten in the Caribbean, Lake Tahoe, and Powhattan, Kansas. As family circumstances changed, I was presented with an opportunity to become part of Harrah’s Gulf Coast's team. I am so excited to be here!

Brooke Rivera

Hello! My name is Brooke Rivera, born and raised in Baton Rouge, LA…GEAUX TIGERS!!  In 2003, I graduated from Southeastern LA University, with a Bachelors of Sciences in Family and Consumer Sciences, concentration in Nutrition.  I began my career as a Nutrition Coach and I also dabbled in the fitness industry, which is where I met my amazing and supportive husband.  He is no stranger to the Casino Industry, and encouraged me to think about an opportunity within the Casino Market.  In 2014, I decided to make a positive career change from the Nutrition and Fitness industry, into the Casino Industry, where I found my new career journey! I began at a local casino in Louisiana as a VIP Concierge.  Within a few months, my husband and I decided to head to the beautiful Biloxi Gulf Coast.  Harrah’s Gulf Coast became my new work home, where I started as a Marketing Associate in Special Events.  Eight months later, I was promoted to Casino Host, then ten months later, was promoted to VIP Hospitality Host. I absolutely love my job!!  Outside of work, my husband and I enjoy the outdoors and playing with our furry “kids”.  Come breathe the refreshing gulf air and give me a call, as I’d love to assist you!  Please reach me at 228-224-3273 or email me at arivera3@harrahs.com.

I’ve had the pleasure of being part of the host team here for the past several months, and am eager to take on my new role as Executive Casino Host. The energy of the host team is contagious, and I truly could not ask for better colleagues property-wide. In the past, I’ve owned my own successful Direct Sales business and managed a big-box retail store; so working with people is in my blood. I love the challenge of finding creative solutions as unique opportunities are presented. I’m looking forward to forging great relationships with our guests and personalizing their experience here on the Gulf Coast. I’m a firm believer in working hard and playing harder! I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.  I am originally from Buffalo, New York, but have called the Gulf Coast home for the past seventeen years. I live in Ocean Springs with my husband, our three teenage sons, and our four dogs. I can’t tell you how much I love living on the coast. With that being said, there is still a good amount of Yankee in me, as I will always be Buffalo Bills fan, and I can still cook up a wicked chicken wing! When I’m not working, I’m a vocal advocate of arts education, and music education in particular.  All three of my sons either play or have played through high school marching band and ensembles, and both my husband, Mike, and I have served as officers of a Band Parent’s Association at the middle-school and high-school levels. A typical Freeman Fall Friday Night is all about cheese wagons, chacos, and cheering on the Blue Grey Pride.

Please contact me at 228-224-5416 or EFreeman@harrahs.com and I would be happy to assist you.
