Welcome! I was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. I moved to sunny Arizona shortly after graduating from Missouri State University in 2012, with a Bachelor’s degree in Entertainment Management. I started my gaming career with Harrah’s Ak-Chin as a VIP Host a month after relocating to AZ. I am a very driven and energetic person, and I pride myself on my professionalism. I enjoy what I do, and cherish the relationships I maintain with our guests. I love being in the exciting environment that Harrah’s is known for, and seek to provide a memorable experience with each and every guest.
I enjoy the Buffet, but would recommend the Filet from the Range Steakhouse. And I couldn’t enjoy the Filet without a loaded baked potato and grilled asparagus on the side.
I look forward to assisting you with any aspect of your visit to Harrah’s Ak-Chin.

Whenever I eat at The Range Steakhouse I enjoy the ribs with a side of mac and cheese. You don't want to miss it. If I'm in the mood for a quick bite, I always prefer the shrimp basket from The Copper Cactus Grill.
The best part of my job is creating new relationship with our guests. I look forward to serving you in the near future.

Hello and welcome to the Valley of the Sun! My name is Trista Lange and I proudly represent Harrah’s Ak-Chin as a Senior Executive Host.
