Melissa Del Valle

Director of Player Development
and Hotel Operations

I am a San Diego native and have been in the casino industry since 2005. I have been a proud member of the Valley View Casino and Hotel family since 2008. I am bilingual in English and Spanish. My hobbies include dining at new restaurants, discovering new music and going to the movies, but my favorite things to do are attend concerts, go out to San Diego Comic-Con every year and travel! I strongly believe that details make all the difference and truly look forward to making your experience with us a memorable one!

Vinny Huynh

Executive Casino Host

I was born in Nha Trang, Vietnam and fled the country during the fall of Saigon in 1975. My father, Lieutenant Major Thu Huynh, piloted us out of Vietnam to the USS Midway aircraft carrier where we eventually made our way to the refugee camp at Camp Pendleton. I have resided in San Diego most of my life but also lived in Las Vegas for seven years. I received my B.A. in History at Cal State University, San Marcos and a Social Behavioral Science degree at Mira Costa College. I have been a Casino Host at Valley View Casino & Hotel since 2010. My favorite hobbies are mixed martial arts, tennis, golf, painting and spending time with my three beautiful daughters.

Joey Pink

Executive Casino Host

I have lived in Southern California my entire life – mainly in northern San Diego and 11 years in the Los Angeles area. I joined the Valley View Promotions team in 2013 and got to meet many of our loyal guests and great team members. I have since joined the Player Development department and enjoy being able to help our guests in any way I can so they will always want to come back for the amazing Valley View experience. When I am not at Valley View taking care of our guests, I spend most of my time with my family, as most of them live in the area. As a family, we like to go boating in Laughlin, Arizona and camping in the desert to ride our ATVs. I look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Valley View Casino & Hotel. Please feel free to ask for me any time!

Jeff Weaver

Casino Host

I grew up nearby, in Oceanside, and attended Oceanside High School. I got my bachelor’s degree from UCSD and served 6 years in The Marine Corps. I got my first casino job in 2010, and never looked back. I’ve worked in Food & Beverage, Poker and now Player Development. I really enjoy the fun and excitement of the casino environment, and Valley View is by far my favorite, because of all the wonderful guests I get to meet and the outstanding fellow team members I get to work with every day! If there’s anything I can do to make your Valley View experience more fun and exciting, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Keaton Cesmat

Casino Host

I was born right here in Southern California, and have lived in Valley Center my entire life. I started here at Valley View Casino and Hotel in 2008 as a valet, then making my way to the Promotions department, and eventually to my current position as a Host. My favorite thing to do when not at work is having fun with my two children. They make every day fun, and watching them grow has changed my life in the best way. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do for you.

Phil Williams

Casino Host

I was born and raised here in the San Diego County. I joined the Valley View Casino & Hotel family back in 2010, just in time to be a part of our amazing Hotel opening. I began my career in Security and spent time as a Slot Technician before moving to Player Development, where I have worked my way up to my current position as a Casino Host. When not at work, I enjoy watching football, cooking and spending time with my two beautiful children. I am always striving to provide the very best gaming experience for all of our guests, so please feel free to contact me if there is anything I can assist you with.

Lily Howard

Casino Host

I was born in Leon Guanajuato, Mexico. My family moved to San Diego in 1999 and I’ve proudly called the city my home ever since. I began working at Valley View Casino & Hotel in 2018 as a Front Desk Attendant before transitioning to the VIP Lounge the following year, eventually working my way to the Casino Host team. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, crafting, traveling, and doing fun activities with my daughter. I am bilingual in English and Spanish, so please do not hesitate to contact me to learn more about our VIP benefits and amenities. Guest service is my priority and it would be my pleasure to assist you with any questions you may have!

Sara Bruzer

Casino Host

I was born and raised in San Diego and while I have lived all over the country, I could not think of a better place to raise my family. I first joined Valley View Casino & Hotel in 2018, starting at the Players Club before I joined the Player Development team, working my way up to the position of Casino Host. When I am not at work, I enjoy quality time with my family outdoors and cherishing everything that this beautiful world has to offer. If there is anything I can do to make your next visit more enjoyable, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am here to assist you!
