Glynna developed a passion for the hospitality industry at just fifteen years old. Her first job was as a drive-in carhop where she quickly cross-trained to learn every position, including cooking. As soon as she was of the appropriate age to wait tables, she jumped at the opportunity and truly fell in love with the fact that a job could be social and fun, while maintaining a coinciding level of professionalism. She moved to Asheville in 2013 and enrolled in the Hospitality Management Program at AB Tech the following year. While in this program, she toured the Biltmore Village Ruth’s Chris and as an end result, got a job starting as a server assistant, quickly moving to a bartender. After graduating in 2016, Glynna continued bartending while becoming a Key Manager and learning the ropes of shift management of Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Working behind the bar and leading shifts, she maintained established relationships with regular VIP guests, while developing new ones and consistently spreading ebullience throughout the restaurant.
