Rebecca’s passion for helping others has been lifelong. At just seven years old, Rebecca’s father took her to his hometown in Pakistan. As they were walking around a spice bazaar one afternoon, they encountered a beggar with a missing leg asking for money.  Curious, she asked her dad what had happened to him. 

Her father explained that since the man had likely been in an accident, now he was no longer able to work to support his family. Rebecca asked her dad how much a leg cost and he told her $100. She asked him for $100 and gave it to the man, telling him it was for his new leg, so he could work and support himself and his family. This childhood incident set her up for a lifetime of compassion for people and evidenced an early, deep desire to help others live their best lives.

Rebecca is a published writer. Her work has been featured in Forbes, National Association of Colleges and Employers, Talent Management & HR, Recruiting Daily, and Talent Culture. Under her direct supervision, Allegiant Airlines won Glassdoor’s “Best Places to Interview” award. Caesars Entertainment, the largest casino-entertainment company in the U.S. retained Rebecca as their new “Chief Energy Officer” in 2021. Her role includes speaking twice monthly on how to shift their emerging leaders’ energies from surviving to thriving using energetic principles at their Emerging Leader Summits across their 55 U.S. based properties.

Rebecca is proud to share her “fight on cheer” from the University of Southern California (USC) and master’s degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). Rebecca’s passion for philanthropy awarded her Top Volunteer at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas from 2011- 2013, and she served as an Advisory Board Member of the HR Exchange Network from 2016-2018.

Rebecca was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. She is the oldest of eleven children and thus began her people management career quite early in life.
