Palms Pool cocktail server Kristen Pullium always has her game face on.

Whether she’s braving a photo shoot in a bikini on a cold, windy day or crushing burpees with her personal trainer, Pullium has an attitude that makes her shine. Perhaps it comes from years of fighting with the boys—on a computer, that is. “I’m a closet nerd and I like to play video games,” she says. “I built my PC.”

When the Las Vegas native isn’t gaming—her favorite is Heroes of the Storm—or gearing up for a bikini competition, she’s all about keeping the good vibes flowing at the Palms, home of the epic Ditch Fridays (returning May 6). This year, the roster features infamous party photographer Kirill Was Here, plus Flo Rida on Memorial Day Weekend. “When we have our talent in, it can’t get any better than that. I’m throwing the party with them and making their experience the best. It’s the best job in Vegas.”

Given her battle-ready spirit, she’s gearing up for her next National Physique Committee competition. “I got the itch to do it again, so now I’m prepping for a show in July,” Pullium says. Having placed second at her NPC debut last year, she’s going in with her eye on the prize. “This time around I’m gunning for first.”
