Born and raised in Trona, CA, Dixie started her career working at the local plant, called Searles Valley Minerals for 26 years.She served as Fleet Coordinator for the mining company, yet wore multiple hats. Her main focus was on fleet management where she was responsible for tracking all of the mobile fleet (light and heavy duty truck, forklifts, cranes, loaders, dozers, etc) and worked with the Plant Managers to acquire replacement vehicles/equipment and dispose of all old junk.
At the same time, owned a bar, called DJ’s Pub from 2000 to 2011. She and her husband managed the establishment with Dixie handling all of the paperwork (payable, receivables, payroll, banking).
In 2011 she and her husband decided to sell everything and move to Las Vegas. There she worked for a couple of years on the Activation Team for the new Department of Veteran Affairs hospital that was being built in North Las Vegas. Her job was to track all new equipment purchased and to ensure it was placed in the appropriate department or room.
