Monica Beets from "Gold Rush: Alaska" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Monica Beets' mining career began at age twelve when her father, Tony Beets, placed her in a front-end loader and said, "Figure it out. I'll come and get you in an hour." Luckily, Monica got the hang of it quickly; moving scoops of tailings all over the family mine.

By age sixteen, Monica was working full time with her dad's mining operation and was appointed Supervisor at Paradise Hill at just eighteen.

Monica

enjoyed the thrill of bossing around men twice her age. "They'd look at you and think, 'What do you know, you're just a girl?' But the fact is, I did know a lot. And with Tony Beets to back me up, they knew they had to do as I said!"

This season Monica will need to learn to operate a new piece of heavy machinery, a 350 ton bucket line dredge.

Her plans ultimately are to enjoy some well deserved travel before working towards obtaining a qualification as a primary care paramedic.
