There, she graduated with Honors and worked her way through college starting with the Ruth’s Chris in Biltmore Village in 2018. Jessica worked her way up the ladder, starting as a Server Assistant. She continually proved to be an effective leader and progressively became the Bartender Coach in one of the best & busiest bars in Asheville. She loved her position and got to know our beloved guests on a more personal level. Her passion for people, execution, and teamwork quickly translated to her to be a highly qualified candidate to join the Ruth’s Chris Management team so that she could offer amply more in guest services and to the needs of the company.
