Hometown: Alberta, Canada/Irvine, California
Moved to Las Vegas: January 2013

Matthews was living in Los Angeles when her boss asked if she wanted to relocate to Las Vegas. “Sure,” she said, and was on a plane the next day. As the events sales manager for Hyde Bellagio, she handles the sales and logistics for everything from weddings and birthday parties to red-carpet bashes such as the Billboard after-party. Not only does she help in the planning process, she’s there for the execution, which means a lot of long days and nights. “I could have five events per week, but every client needs to be treated like they’re VIP,” Matthews says. “No one is more important than the other one, from a 15-person party to a 700-person party.” Putting in time beyond the usual 9 to 5 has its perks, too, as the Canada-born Matthews gets to build her celebrity clientele, including a growing list of superstar DJs. And moving forward? “I would love to oversee a lot of different venues,” she says. But for now she’s pleased to make do with “getting a nice feedback email or a big hug at the end of the night.”

Keep calm and party on: “When an event starts, 100 different things can change from how you planned it. The client can walk in [the day of] and be like, ‘I don’t want any of this.’ You have to go with it, and always with a smile on your face. The No. 1 thing is not to get stressed out. Everything is going to fall into place as long as you’re organized.”
