A graduate of Williams High School, Robin Matteri began dealing Blackjack and Poker at Colusa Casino in 1994. After 17 years in the gaming business, she found her true calling while volunteering for a local homeless shelter.
Working to inspire our homeless population prompted her to return to school where she is currently completing a Bachelor’s of Science in Human Service Administration. Her desire to help others combined with a passion to positively impact communities became the inspiration behind her company; Out Loud Events, which specializes in resource development and fundraising for non profit organizations and agencies who work to implement change in their communities.
As a freelance writer, Matteri has had personal essays published in Parents for Parents Magazine, Northern California Poker Room News, Patterson Irrigator, imperfectparent.com and currently produces website content for a number of online forums.
“I believe that far too often we find ourselves so caught up in the existence of survival that we forget about the life we are called to lead. Life is about helping others, kindness and seeking truth in the passion that defines us.” — Robin
Matteri returns to Colusa County with the desire to highlight the people, places and things that evoke change and inspire our community to unite. Her desire to document the truth behind the faces of Colusa County is hopefully a testimony to the fact that we all have a story.
Matteri is welcomed into the Williams Pioneer Review Staff as a Freelance Community Reporter and will be heading our Advertising Sales for the magazine.
“Robin expresses the kind of desire and passion our publication has and needs,” said Lloyd Green Jr, Publisher of the Williams Pioneer Review, “I look forward to working with Robin and seeing how she can help contribute to our community and its news magazine.”
