Earning her associates degree in accounting and developing an expertise in finance, Wendy has twenty-one years of experience in the Gaming industry.

During a two and a half year planning phase, Wendy turned to the Director of Marketing, Marty Maiers, who, in collaboration with the creative services department, launched the concept for The Filament. Marty earned his degree in information technology. He evolved into a numbers conscious data analyst and now incorporates his creativity into strategic marketing.

Richard G. Shaluly and Melanie Devaney
Richard G. Shaluly is a Southern boy, but he claims that he hasn't missed a beat when it comes to finding warm hospitality and good down-home cooking right here in the Midwest. He has never backed down from a good-looking cheeseburger, but he has also enjoyed getting to the bottom of mouth-watering dishes in cozy spots from California to the Caribbean. His passion for Middle Eastern cuisine keeps him always willing to follow the sound of the adventurous dinner bell, dive in deep, and try something new. Melanie Devaney lives in Epworth. In her ‘other life’ as a singer-songwriter, she has traveled all over the country, as well as in Europe, discovering many delicious meals along the way. With an emphasis on maintaining an overall healthy diet, Melanie strives to find the perfect balance between tasty and nutritious. As a Dubuque County native, Melanie is delighted to see so many new, high-quality restaurants opening throughout the area.
