When I started with Cheddar’s in high school, I never imagined I would be where I am today. Cheddar’s helped me discover my passion for hospitality. Within nine months, I was promoted to service team lead, and less than four years later I was promoted to service manager. I am so proud to be a part of this brand!

In the 11 years I’ve been with Cheddar’s, I’ve explored many different roles—server, culinary assistant and now bartender. The most satisfying aspect is seeing my Guests return frequently to be served by me.

I started with Cheddar’s as a server. After a bad car accident, I had some physical limitations but my Cheddar’s family didn’t give up on me. They moved me into the Host role and I was recently promoted to Service Training Lead. I am so grateful and blessed for all that this brand has done for me.
