This week we would like to introduce Sandra van Steijn, the General Manager of St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino.
Sandra has been a part of the St. Eugene family for 6 years, and her unparalleled knowledge and understanding of the casino, resort and hospitality industries has been invaluable to our organization. Sandra began her career in the Gaming industry in 1991, working for Holland Casinos as a Blackjack & Roulette Dealer. In the Fall of 1995 she moved to Canada to open Casino Regina, where she held the roles of Manager of Training & Development as well as Casino Manager.
In 2000 she moved to Scottsdale, Arizona where she, in partnership, owned and operated a Bar & Grill. Her two daughters were born during this time, so they have dual citizenship. After selling the business in late 2006, she returned to Canada and began a career with Gateway Casinos in the role of Manager of Training & Development as well as VIP Operations Manager. Sandra was also involved in the opening of Starlight Casino and Grand Villa Casino.
Sandra accepted the role of General Manager of the Casino of the Rockies at St. Eugene in 2010, became the Hotel & Casino General Manager in 2012, and in 2016 became the Resort General Manager, overseeing casino, hotel and golf course operations.
Sandra’s devotion to her role at St. Eugene is apparent to all, she looks forward to coming to work each day and describes St. Eugene as a beautiful resort in a gorgeous area, with great people to work alongside. For fun, Sandra enjoys weekend road trips with her daughters and fiance, and is also an avid golfer – and a very good one, she’s even hit a, “hole-in-one” on the St. Eugene course! Sandra looks forward to welcoming you soon, to the St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino!
