A League of Her Own
Think you're busy? Try juggling a job at M and a budding career in football; Lingerie Football to be specific. Our resort is home to our very own Lingerie Football League (LFL) player, Kandice Golar. By day she's a star concierge at our resort helping guests create memorable getaways and on her days off she's hitting the turf with the ladies of the Las Vegas Sin. We caught up with our concierge Kandice to get the full nine yards on her hospitality and sports careers.
How long have you worked at the M?
I've been working for M for a little over a year now.
What's your favorite part of being a concierge?
Being a concierge is such a rewarding job. It gives me the chance to interact with and help people from all walks of life and people from all over the world. I'm able to assist guests with fantastic ways to celebrate a special event or meaningful occasion in their life. Whether it's ordering chocolate strawberries and champagne to flowers and balloons, I enjoy assisting our guests with making their stay at M special, romantic and more memorable.
What's the most unique request you've gotten so far?
Shaquille O'Neal needed long, black dress socks within hours. Not realizing until after I spoke with him that he wore a size 23 shoe, I knew I had some calling around to do. It was a daunting task but I was able to get him his socks just in the nick of time with the help of a seamstress.
How do you juggle playing for the LFL and working at M?
I'm able to handle both jobs with the help of my very understanding and awesome Management Team and Team Members at M!
How did you get in to playing for the LFL?
A friend of mine thought I would be interested in the LFL after she received an email about tryouts for the team they were forming in Las Vegas. At first I the thought the LFL was going to be similar to powder puff football that I had played in high school. But after doing some research on the league, I saw that it was full contact, tackle football. I was very excited about the opportunity and decided to tryout. I haven't looked back since!
Did you always have an interest in playing sports?
I've always been interested in sports even at a young age. My parents always kept me very active in various types of sports while growing up. I played club, high school and college soccer. After college I began competing in figure competitions. I really enjoy being active and I just love to compete.
What's your LFL position?
I play both wide receiver and corner for the Las Vegas Sin.
How long have you been playing for the LFL?
This is my first year playing in the LFL and I LOVE it! This is also the first year for Las Vegas to have a LFL team. It's a great feeling to be part of a team especially during their first year!
What tips would you give to girls wanting to play for the LFL?
Anyone can be taught the basics of football. Just make sure that you have some type of athleticism. It's important to be in-shape and be prepared to train hard.
Do you have any other unique hobbies?
Aside from the LFL, I compete in figure competitions and I also enjoy snowboarding.
On the heels of their first victory, Kandice's team the Las Vegas Sin beat the Chicago Bliss 32-20 in their debut game. You can see Kandice and the other ladies of the Las Vegas Sin play in their first home game on November 11 at the Orleans Arena against the L.A. Temptation.
