Brittany started her career in the hospitality industry as a hostess in a small restaurant at the age of 15. She fell in love with the fast-paced environment, as well as the guest interaction. After graduating high school, she took off to Canada’s East coast for schooling, which landed her a scholarship in Daytona Florida to study Hotel & Restaurant Management. Upon returning home to visit her family, she fell in love with the newly booming food scene in Ottawa. Soon after, she began her career as a manager running the food & beverage program at a private golf course just outside of Ottawa. Upon leaving the golf course, she worked at the Shore Club, a high-end restaurant in downtown Ottawa, managing the Bar & Lounge. After many years of working in Ottawa’s core, she joined the team at Social in March of 2016.
